Mpumalanga is in the north-eastern region of South Africa, and it’s northern most side, borders on Mozambique.
When one thinks of Mpumalanga, you immediately think of Kruger National Park, Sabie and Skukuza – which it is most famous for. A landlocked province, but nonetheless not boring by any stretch of the imagination harbouring beautiful scenery and wildlife.
Mpumalanga has rolling grassland savannah and beautiful mountainous areas. The province’s iconic Blyde River Canyon, among the world’s largest, is known as a green canyon because of its subtropical foliage.
There is a section known as the Panorama Route, known for its scenic mountains, awe inspiring natural beauty and waterfalls. This entire section is also pet-friendly, except for Bourkes Luck Potholes! And if you’ve ever visited Bourkes Luck, you’ll understand why. It is the most massive natural potholes carved by water – which are even dangerous for humans! (except if you stay on the demarcated route of course).
Mpumalanaga therefore has only one classification in our book, and that is Mountain getaways. 🙂
Some of our favourite destinations include: Graskop, Dullstroom, Gods Window, Blyde River Canyon, Pilgrims Rest
|Out & About||Only some restaurants around Mpumalanga allow dogs. There are at least a handful along the Panorama Route that do allow dogs. Some of these beautiful scenic destinations allow dogs, but be careful when hiking or visiting and always keep your dogs on lead. The big nature reserves are Big 5 territory, and keep in mind that most of the rivers are crocodile infested, so keep an eye on your dogs. Unfortunately Sabie and KNP are not pet-friendly, however there are many campsites, and lodgings around the area where you can bring your furkids.|
