Mpumalanga Lowveld

The Lowveld was previously known as the Eastern Transvaal Lowveld. Following the end of Apartheid in 1994 the province's name was changed to Mpumalanga and the area is simply called The Lowveld.

South Africa's geography mainly consists of a large interior plateau, an often mountainous escarpment and a low lying coastal plane that runs all the way up the eastern and western flanks of the country. Although the Mpumalanga border does not stretch to the ocean, the Lowveld section of the province is part of the coastal plane and is more or less 200m above sea-level. This is in contrast to nearby Belfast at 2200m, which is located on the Mpumalanga Highveld.

The Lowveld is home to fertile fruit growing farms, the southern half of the Kruger National Park (and its private game reserve extensions) and large rural communal land areas such as Bushbuck Ridge. The Lowveld's biggest tourist draw card is definitely its wildlife. The Kruger Park's main rest camp and headquarters, Skukuza, lie within the Mpumalanga section of the Park.

The Sabie Sand Reserve consists of a collection of independent private game reserves, which has an open border with the Kruger (i.e. no fences) thus forming part of one of the biggest wildlife areas in the world.
