We’re up before the sun, to steal a march on the wildlife of Kruger National Park. They’re either just waking, or heading for bed. Led by a highly experienced Trails Ranger from our starting point, we strap on our comfortable walking boots, and set off on foot to get up close and personal with game, big and small, and learn something precious about their world. Our ranger will teach us some bush skills, from animal tracking to bird and plant identification. Its fun, it’s fascinating and you’ll fall in love with the sight, scents and wonderful sounds of the bush as the sun creeps up. Nobody knows what will be around the next corner, but rest assured, it’ll make your heart beat that little bit faster. There is a short game drive to and from the walking point.

Mpumalanga Activities and Accommodation

Geography

The Drakensberg Escarpment divides Mpumalanga into a westerly half consisting mainly of high-altitude grassland called the Highveld and an eastern half situated in low altitude subtropical Lowveld/Bushveld, mostly savannah habitat. The southern half of the Kruger National Park is situated in the latter region.

The Drakensberg exceeds heights of 2000m in most places with this central region of Mpumalanga being very mountainous. These regions have alpine grasslands and small pockets of Afromontane Forest. The Lowveld is relatively flat with interspersed rocky outcrops. The Lebombo Mountains form a low range in the far east forming the border with Mozambique.

Climate

The Lowveld is subtropical, due to its proximity to the warm Indian Ocean and latitude. The Highveld is comparatively much cooler, due to its altitude of 2300m to 1700m above sea level. The Drakensberg Escarpment receives the most precipitation, with all other areas being moderately well-watered by mostly summer thunderstorms.

The Highveld often experiences severe frost, whilst the Lowveld is mostly frost-free. Winter rainfall is rare, except for some drizzle on the escarpment. The differences in climate are demonstrated below by the capital, Nelspruit, which is in the Lowveld, located just an hour from Belfast on the Highveld.

Nelspruit averages: January maximum: 29 °C (min: 19 °C), July maximum: 23 °C (min: 6 °C), annual precipitation: 767 mm

Swaziland Day Tour from Malelane

From one country to another in a matter of minutes! As you cross the border, you’ll not only feel the warmth of the friendly, welcoming people of Swaziland, but you’ll fall in love with the lush fertile valleys and magnificent mountain scenery.

Our journey takes us over the Maguga Dam Wall, and perhaps we’ll catch a glimpse of the Banana Leaf Dancers. We visit the Nsangwini RockArt and explore the bushman paintings tucked away in a rock shelter, dramatically perched above the Komati River below – no finer way to learn about the origins of the Swazi people.

Take your seat, we’re off to what is purported to be the oldest mine on earth, one where the ancient San people were extracting ochre. For the artisans, shoppers and crafts lovers among us, Ngwenya Glass is a ‘Must See’. We’ll watch highly skilled glass blowers creating their wonderful works of art, all handmade from recycled glass. A short distance away, we’ll pop into a traditional craft centre where you can purchase that special curio. And after all that shopping, a light lunch is definitely what’s needed.
