It just doesn't make sense! I mean, the province of Mpumalanga in South Africa has nothing special about it at all... Except for the MAGNIFICENT escarpments, gushing rivers, thriving flaura and fauna, and let's not forget about the world-class Big Five safari experiences. I suppose that one can dive into luxury accommodation slap bang in the middle of the rugged African bush, surrounded by teeming wildlife and exquisite hospitality but who on earth would put this on their bucket list?
I'm still oblivious as to why people rant and rave about Mpumalanga. There's nothing to DO in the middle of the African bush, besides for sitting around and watching animals roaming by. It's not like there's an abundance of Big Five safari game drives and other amazing outdoor adventures like zip lining through mountains, white water rafting and tubing, mountain biking through forests, quad biking among waterfalls, paint balling, horse back riding or abseiling down granite rock overlooking the famous Kruger National Park.
I'm also perplexed as to why they call this region the Panoramic Route! It must have something to do with the unrivaled views, landscapes and scenery, such as Bourkes Luck, God's Window, Blyde River Canyon, Lone Creek Falls or Long Tom Pass.

This the biggest of animal migrations in the world. The sardine run, is totally wild unpredictable event, that when it all comes together, as it does for three months annually, the sardine run is the most spectacular wildlife spectacle on the planet; dolphins, seals and whales whip the ocean surface into whitecaps, thousands of birds diving, whales lunge feeding through shoals scattering the fish. It is a twilight zone where time stands still and becomes meaningless, as you witness this amazing play of life and death unfolding.
If you are looking for a real African experience and adventure diving at its best, you’re unlikely to be disappointed!
