For the usual tourist, the Mpumalanga Escarpment is a great sight-seeing car ride along a panoramic route, all lavish Evergreen forest, epic canyons, and picturesque waterfalls.
Those inspired to see South Africa in all of its glory will make sure to put a few days aside to test the trails to the candle-shaped Berlin Falls and the 90 meter (295 foot) high Lisbon Falls found 3 kilometers south. True adventurers will also choose to navigate the amazing views and rock formations available at Pinnacle Rock and God's Window on foot and leave the car ride for the trip back to civilization.
Another highlight of the area is Blyde River Canyon, the third largest of its kind in the world, also chock full of hiking treks. Check the included site for more on available hikes and traveling information!
