Sabie is a small logging town next to the Sabie River on the mountainous escarpment of the Mpumalanga Highveld. It is centrally located near Lydenburg via the Long Tom Pass, the Panorama Route via Graskop and the Lowveld via Hazyview. The town lies within one of the largest man-made forests (plantations) in the world.
Hazyview is a small town in Mpumalanga's Lowveld region en-route to the main gate of the Kruger National Park. Although the greater Hazyview region is beautiful and does justify the poetic name, the town itself is rather drab..
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. The Lowveld section of the province is part of the coastal plane and is more or less 200m above sea-level.
