The delightful Highlands and Escarpment regions in the province of Mpumalanga are situated east and northeast of Johannesburg. Rolling highland grasslands and dramatic mountains are intermingled with cascading waterfalls, forests, pristine rivers and breathtaking vistas across the Lowveld. Roughly midway between Johannesburg and the Kruger National Park, the Highlands and Escarpment areas offer plenty of great spots to pause for lunch, overnight or spend a few days. The charming village of Dullstroom is the heart of South Africa’s angling scene and attracts trout fishing enthusiasts from around the world. The Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window and Bourke’s Luck Potholes are must-see’s along the Panorama Route which makes its way through the beautiful Escarpment. The quaint town of Pilgrim’s Rest, swept up in gold rush fever in the late 1800’s, adds a fascinating historical perspective to your journey.
