Mpumalanga - Cultural Heartlands

Cultural Heartlands Travel Directory

General Information

The Cultural Heartlands is often referred to as “Lanatus” country because of the Encephalartos Lanatus, a species of Cycad (some are more than 4 000 years old), which is endemic to the catchment area of the Olifants River, where it grows wild.  There are many wild flowers like Arum Lilies which transform the area into a magical garden during summer. 

This region is also known for its abundant mining and farming, and offers agricultural tours to working farms and industrial tours to the collieries and steel manufacturing plants. History enthusiasts will enjoy the Boer War Route leading through the area. There are plenty of fascinating relics from this period to look at.

The Mpumalanga Cultural Heartlands immerses visitors in the colourful Ndebele culture.  Visit these colourful villages such as Kwaggafontein, Matibidi, Waterval and Twoline. Here community tourism is on the rise, allowing visitors to enjoy authentic South African rural life. Stop by the village of Botshabelo, where the Bible was translated for the first time from English into Ndebele.

Loskop Dam has a catchment area of 3 540 square kilometres and the Loskop Dam Nature Reserve is the ideal area to go game viewing by boat. The Witbank Dam offers parasailing, windsurfing and skiing, for the watersport fanatic. These are only a few of the activities on offer in this region.
