The Wild Frontier Region borders Mozambique, Swaziland and the southern tip of the Kruger National Park. Visitors may enter the Park here through either the Malelane or Crocodile Bridge Gates.

The Wild Frontier is known for its significant geological formations and archaeological discoveries, its San rock art sites and historical mining towns.

Although no longer really wild, the pristine natural environment, mostly preserved within the borders of the Kruger National Park and other nature and wildlife reserves, offer visitors a chance to experience the “real” essence of Africa on foot (hiking trails) and by road (also in 4×4 vehicles).
