The Lowveld Legogote Region, with its many wildlife reserves (private, provincial and national), offers the tourist the true “African” experience and is one of South Africa’s prime tourist destinations. The region is situated in the lower reaches of the escarpment and encompasses the towns of Nelspruit (the capital of Mpumalanga), White River with its many artists, Kaapschehoop with its wild horses and Kanyamazane.
It is en route to the Kruger National Park and to South Africa’s neighbours, Swaziland and Mozambique. The region also boasts one of the oldest caves in the world, as well as one of Africa’s largest reptile parks.
Lowveld Legogote is a hot and humid area with fertile soil and plentiful summer rains that sustain the green carpet of plants that covers most of the region. Tropical fruit farms contribute to the lushness of the area and a large part of South Africa’s winter vegetable supplies are grown here. The region offers many adventure and sporting opportunities and the chance to “get away from it all”.
