Mpumalanga means "place where the sun rises". It is bordered by Mozambique and Swaziland in the east and Gauteng in the west. It is situated mainly on the high plateau grasslands of the Middleveld. In the northeast it rises towards mountain peaks and then terminates in an immense Escarpment. In some places this Escarpment plunges hundreds of metres down with sheer drops, to the low-lying area known as the Lowveld. Nelspruit is the capital of the province. Because of its popularity as a tourist destination, Mpumalanga is also served by a number of small airports. Malaria occurs in some parts of the Lowveld regions and visitors should take the usual precautions.
Because of the mountains and perennial rivers in the Panorama area, it lends itself to adrenaline-pumping activities like rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, 4x4 trails, hot air ballooning and paragliding. For the same reasons there are uncountable hiking trails in this region.
Mpumalanga's cultural atractions are particularly colourful, such as the iconic Ndebele artwork, beadwork and small painted articles. Kids will love the dinosaur park just outside the deep and convoluted Sudwala Caves.
