SUDWALA CAVES

The Sudwala Caves are the oldest known caves in the world, and as such, are a `must-see' on the itinerary of any visitor to

Mpumalanga.

 

These incredible caverns lie in the Drakensberg escarpment which separates the Highveld from the lowlands of

Mpumalanga.

 

Besides the awesome rock displays the caverns also boast an array of calcium formations, aged but active, anciently and

patiently still growing.

THREE RONDAWELS

 

The ‘Three Rondawels' (also called 'Three Sisters’) are three huge spirals of dolomite rock rising out of the

far wall of the Blyde River canyon.

 

Their domed heads are iced in green and their sides are stained with fiery orange lichen. From the 'Three Rondawels' you

can see the extensive Swadini Dam in the far distance, which marks the end of the reserve.

MAC MAC FALLS

 

The 65 m high Mac Mac Falls in the Mac Mac River is a declared National Monument.

 

This waterfall was originally a single stream, but gold miners blasted it with dynamite to divert the river in an attempt to

work the rich gold-bearing reef over which it plunges.

HISTORIC PILGRIMS REST

 

The history of this small delightful village dates back to 1873 when a miner, Alex Patterson, discovered alluvial gold on the

farm named Ponieskrantz.

 

The diggers called it Pilgrim's Rest because here, at last, after so many false trails and faded dreams they had truly found

their home.

BURKE'S LUCK POTHOLES

 

The Potholes were named after a gold digger, Tom Burke, who staked a claim nearby.  Although his claim did not produce a

single ounce of gold, he correctly predicted that large gold deposits would be found in the area.

 

The Potholes is located 35km north of Graskop town on the R532 road. The informative visitors centre details some of the

interesting natural and socio-historic features and is the starting point of the 700m walk to the potholes.

GOD'S WINDOW

 

With magnificent views, canyons, rock formations and waterfalls, God's Window is truly an area of breathtaking scenic

splendour.

 

It is no wonder that Mpumalanga is known as Paradise Country!

 

Gods Window is so called for the panoramic view of the Lowveld

THE LOWVELD BOTANICAL GARDEN

 

The character of the Garden is shaped by the two main rivers that cut across it, namely the Crocodile River and the Nels

River.

 

Before these two rivers converge in the Garden, they form spectacular waterfalls which can be viewed at the Cascades and

the Nels viewpoints.
