Things to do and see in and around Malelane

Best known as the gateway to the Kruger and home to the world-famous Leopard Creek golf course, the small farming town of Malelane has a lot to offer.

Lowveld Living Magazine, Issue 76, Spring 2019 – One of the original meanings for the word Malelane is the Swazi lala, which means to sleep, an aptly fitting name for this laidback and friendly town. It is the centre of the Mpumalanga sugar cane industry and surrounded by tropical fruit and game farms.

Malelane’s hot sluggish weather during the day and dark Bushveld nights make it the ideal place to escape city life and unwind. So don’t forget to pack plenty of water and sunblock while we give you some ideas of what to do should you have some spare time in between looking out for the Big Five.

Lowveld Living is a creative and vibrantly upbeat magazine that focuses on the people and lifestyles of the Lowveld. From the panoramic gateway of the escarpment, through Mpumalanga’s sub-tropical heartland, to the beaches of cosmopolitan Maputo and the misty hideouts of Swaziland’s mountain kingdom, the area is renowned for its natural beauty – but what really makes the Lowveld tick is its people. Lowveld Living explores how these innovative (and often eccentric) adventurers, artists and entrepreneurs are creating a spirited, stylish society in an area renowned for its natural beauty.
