Mpumalanga province is also known as ‘paradise country’ because of its extraordinarily beautiful Lowveld and untamed, natural landscape. The vegetation in the province is lush and teeming with birds and wildlife and there are multiple sanctuaries and reserves that protect the fauna and flora within this breathtaking region. Kruger Park, with its opulent, private reserves and accommodation is partially located in western Mpumalanga. Nelspruit is the capital of the province and is famous for its abundant fruit farming. The sub-tropical weather allows residents to tend to lavish, flourishing gardens in the center of this citrus growing region. The name Mpumalanga means ‘the place where the sun rises,’ in four different South African languages. This eastern province borders Swaziland and Mozambique and is conveniently close to Gauteng with its commerce, enterprise and buzzing business hub.
