Take a look at some of the places we stop on this route:

  1. Make tracks in Middelburg

Departing from the City of Gold you make your way North passing through Midrand, Pretoria and Witbank before arriving at the large farming and industrial town of  Middelburg in the Mpumalanga province.

If Middelburg is your final destination, we highly recommend a visit to the Botshabelo Mission Station and Historical Village, one of South Africa’s famous Heritage sites, for a true African cultural experience. Or if arts and culture aren’t your vibe, we highly recommend sailing and fishing in the Loskop Dam located int the Loskop Dam Nature Reserve. Middelburg is a tranquil town and an ideal holiday destination for adventurers.

Nelspruit is the capital city of Mpumalanga and it has grown exponentially over the years. Famous for its mango, banana, avocado, and macadamia nuts, Nelspruit is an established tourism destination and popular gateway to the Kruger National Park.
