Headed to Kruger National Park? Slow down and take some time to explore Mpumalanga and Limpopo, and you’ll discover there’s plenty more to see than just the legendary wildlife and rugged terrain of Kruger (as if that wasn’t enough). Tucked into the North of South Africa, Mpumalanga and Limpopo is riddled with parks and reserves, ancient forests and trout-filled waters—and the scenery is as stunning as the history. Delve deep into Sudwala, the world’s oldest known cave system, and survey the ancient rock art of San Bushmen. Though largely rural, the bustling towns of Limpopo provide modern amenities, giving visitors everything they need before embarking on unforgettable safari expeditions. Roaring waterfalls and rewarding hiking trails line the Drakensberg Escarpment, where highveld plateaus tumble dramatically into lowveld plains. Take in the vistas, and contemplate the power of history and nature in Mpumalanga and Limpopo. And then follow the traveler-trail into Kruger.
