Situation and Climate

Mpumalanga means "the place where the sun rises" - because of the sunny weather.

The nearest City, Nelspruit, lies at an altitude of 900 meters above sea level - from where the " Lowveld ".

Kaapschehoop, 35 km from Nelspruit, lies at an altitude of 1712 meters.

This is also the reason why the climate is more feasible (cooler), and why Malaria doesn't occur here.

On a clear evening the sky can be admired, unspoiled by city lights of pollution.


Herds of wild horses roam the rocky suface of the grasslands, where the Blue Swallows come each year to nest. Eagles, Hawks and numerous other birds celebrate their freedom in the crisp mountain air.
