The Mpumalanga Highlands Meander is situated only two to three hours from Gauteng in South Africa. The Highlands Meander has evolved into a 'must-visit' tourist destination in Mpumalanga, luring and enchanting nature lovers, fly-fishers, and adventure addicts to a multiplicity of Meander attractions. The Highlands Meander is set among majestic mountains that plummet to the famed bushveld, the rolling hills, pristine rivers, and spectacular kloofs of the Meander.

This dramatic setting is the backdrop to the towns and areas of Belfast, Dullstroom Lydenburg, Machadodorp, Waterval-Boven and the Kwena Basin, each with a plethora of accommodation options. Dullstroom is at the forefront of these towns with accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. Major highlights of this quaint town include trout fishing waters, a wide choice of quality restaurants and pubs and a vibrant arts and crafts community.  Accommodation in Dullstroom affords visitors to this area an ideal springboard to activities such as rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, hot air ballooning, mountain biking and paragliding.

Those jaded by the stresses of city life are just a drive away from the tranquility and drama of the spectacular Mpumalanga Highlands and an opportunity to nurture the soul.
