The Mpumalanga Wild Frontier Region is located in the southeastern part of Mpumalanga, bordering Mozambique, Swaziland and the southern tip of Kruger Park. The region is also steeped in history for the people of Mozambique: there is a monument here that is reminiscent of Samoa Machel, who crashed in this region with his plane.
Wild Frontier is often referred to as the ‘cradle of life’. Archaeological finds date back more than three trillion years, and the Mkonjwa Mountains, which are among the oldest mountains in the world, bear witness to this name. Highlights include the towns of Kaapsehoop, a reminder of the Gold Rush era, and Komatipoort, a major transportation hub. From here you can visit three different countries in one day: Swaziland, Mozambique and South Africa.
From this region you can experience a special variety. The proximity to the Kruger National Park and the many private game reserves offers ideal day trips for spectacular safaris and game viewing. Maputo, the capital of Mozambique on the Indian Ocean, can be reached in just one hour, and the Kingdom of Swaziland, with its pretty markets, enchanting scenery and cultural richness, is only a few miles away. The lush subtropical fruit plantations are a feast for the eyes and the granite mountains offer beautiful hiking trails.
With one of the most perfect winter climates the country has to offer, Komatipoort lies at the crossroads of the Komati and Crocodile Rivers on the western slopes of the Lebombo Mountains, which form a natural barrier between South Africa and Mozambique . Komatipoort is essentially a picturesque border town, just three kilometres from the Lebombo border crossing point to Mozambique as “more than just a stopover”.
While this may sound like a quiet little town on its way to nowhere, nothing could be further from the truth. Komatipoort is just 8 kilometers from the Crocodile Bridge Gate in Kruger National Park, 5 kilometers from the border with Mozambique and only 65 kilometers from the border with Swazi, making day trips to any of these places incredibly easy.
Sabie is located on the border of the world famous Kruger National Park. However, the city and its inhabitants are particularly committed to the fauna and flora that make this part of Mpumalanga so special. Therefore, they abide by strict rules regarding the obstruction of the natural movement of the animals and allow many of these species to cross this border freely and without danger.
In this way, Sabie retains its biodiversity and is true to the diversity and natural wealth of South Africa. So you can observe animals that wonder gracefully or drink from the mighty Crocodile River; a few meters from the houses of Sabie. In fact, almost half of the city’s land area is a parkland that does justice to the plants and animals of the southern part of Kruger, which have chosen this as their natural habitat.
Visitors to Marloth Park can look forward to four of the Big Five. namely lions, leopards, buffalo and rhinos. However, elephants are only seen in Kruger itself and can often be seen on the banks of the Crocodile River. Enjoy a glass of South African wine by the river to enjoy the proximity to some of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife.
