The area is synonymous with mountains and wildlife – the latter most notably found in the world-renowned Kruger National Park. However, there is so much more to see and do in the north east part of Mpumalanga. Kruger Lowveld Tourism’s (KLT) guide provides tantalising glimpses of the many wonders of the region to help tour operators and travellers make the most of a visit to the region.
In its sixth edition, the slim guide folds out into a double-sized sheet with a large map and informative map of the Kruger Lowveld area on one side, and a wealth of information on the other.
Whether you are a wildlife enthusiast, nature lover, adrenaline addict, romantic, rambler, historian or culture junkie, you will be able to craft the perfect holiday, and for those unfamiliar with the region, particularly international tourism, the basic information on climate, personal safety, medical care, shopping, food and water, and road safety, etc, will provide peace of mind.
The annual guide has proved so popular since its introduction that its print run increases year-on-year. Thirty-thousand more copies were printed of the latest guide, increasing the print run from 120 000 to 150 000. It is available free of charge and is distributed via all local and regional information offices, hotels, concierge desks, restaurants, transfer companies, car hire companies, airports, local and international tour operators, strategic tourism sites/places of interest and in the Kruger National Park.
Lisa Sheard, KLT’s Executive Director and Marketing Consultant, says an inclusion in the guide that should prove very popular is information on Barberton’s Makhonjwa Geotrail, a 38km self-drive exploration trail that runs up the scenic Bulembu pass to Swaziland. Some of the rock formations around Barberton date back around 3.2 billion years.
