PLACES TO VISIT IN MPUMALANGA
April 04, 2018
Mpumalanga is known as 'THE PLACE WHERE THE SUN RISES!' Formally known as Eastern Transvaal, Mpumalanga is considered to be one of the most geographically diverse and unbelievably beautiful places in South Africa.
In the northeast, the land rises towards mountain peaks and then terminates in an immense escarpment. In some places, this escarpment plunges hundreds of meters down to the low-lying area known as the Lowveld. We have compiled a list of the beautiful destinations in Mpumalanga that will make you fall in love with this part of South-Africa.
SUDWALA LODGE - NELSPRUIT, MPUMALANGA

Within striking distance, you have the awe-inspiring Lisbon, Berlin and Mac Mac Falls. You can also visit scenic landmarks like the Wonder View, Pinnacle, Bourke's Luck Potholes, and Three Rondavels. Best of all, the Lodge itself also has plenty to see and do on their own premises!
Sudwala Lodge offers affordable accommodation in a variety of configurations. Guests can opt for a stay in the perfectly situated A Block, or well-appointed self-catering Chalets nestled in the shade of indigenous trees, on the banks of the Houtbosloop River, at the foot of the Mankelekele Mountain.

is a conservation haven for indigenous plants, birds, mammals and other wildlife.
