Marloth Park is located in the province Mpumalanga

Three elements play a key role in the province of Mpumalanga: Blyde River Canyon, the third deepest canyon in the world, the Sudwala Caves, the oldest caves in the world and the Kruger National Park, undoubtedly the most famous game park in the world. And yet this is the second smallest province of South Africa. Mpumalanga means “the place where the sun rises”.

It may be one of the smallest provinces in South Africa, but its modest size is no longer compensated by a spectacular diversity in the landscape. Mpumalanga houses not only the most famous game park in the world, the third-deepest canyon and the oldest cave system; This region also has developed several wildlife parks with a stunning flora and fauna. Four billion years ago, Antarctica and Madagascar separated themselves from the Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga. Thereby remained spectacular, beautiful scenery behind; it rises toward the northeast mountains and ends in a huge slope that steep slopes towards the lower lowveld. The influence of history is evident in Mpumalanga; of the legendary King Solomon and Queen Sheba to the ancient floating villages of Chrissieslake. Rock Art of the earliest African peoples – San and Khoisan – is omnipresent; the gold rush in the 1870s recorded for posterity in the historic town of Pilgrim’s Rest, and also beyond the traces are found everywhere. From the winding mountain passes of the region, steep valleys, rivers and pristine forests are magnificent phenomena occur, including the 3000 million year old Sudwala caves, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, God’s Window, Wonder View and Three Rondavels.
Just want to get away from it all? Plenty to do: watching the most amazing birds, hiking, horseback riding and trout fishing. Or something rougher: a safari on the back of an elephant, white-water rafting or abseiling from a waterfall.

Wildlife is the key word in Mpumalanga South Africa because of: Kruger National Park. This wildlife park – one of the biggest parks in the world can boast an unparalleled variety of native animals in their natural environment.
