Mpumalanga is one of the most beautiful places in South Africa. With its name translating to "the place where the sun rises", it’s appropriate that the province is filled with several stunning summer destinations. Bordering Swaziland and Mozambique, Mpumalanga's large expanse has a diverse flora and fauna - a lot of which is protected by its considerable collection of nature reserves. 

Apart from being home to the popular Kruger National Park, one of the largest game reserves on the continent, Mpumalanga is also home to some stunning scenery. 

Here's a few pictures that we really loved:

Mpumalanga consists of a range of stunning wildlife. These include the big five game animals, namely African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard and the rhinoceros. Here's a beautiful picture of the Cheetah just casually chilling atop a tree.


Wow! Talk about a view. Instead of your typical picnic date, this couple right here is overlooking the stunning canyons, rock formations and greenery of Mpumalanga. It doesn't get much better than this.


Formed about 250 million years ago, the Sudwala Caves are some of the oldest caves in the world. They look to be aging quite well if you ask me. Tours of these caves are held throughout the year, and it certainly looks worth the visit.
