Mpumalanga boasts world-class parks and reserves, astonishing botanical gardens, rivers and lakes. Safaris are a major draw-card, and the Kruger National Park is the jewel in South Africa’s tourism crown, while sub-sectors such as business travel (including conference facilities), adventure, heritage and cultural tourism all hold huge growth potential.
The casino industry in particular has enjoyed great growth and shows signs of further potential for additional investment. In addition to the establishment a Provincial Liberation Heritage Route, priority investment projects that have been highlighted include:
• A cable car over a part of the Blyde River Canyon.
• A cantilevered glass walkway at God’s Window.
• An International Convention Centre (ICC) in the capital, Mbombela
South Africa’s third most visited province, Mpumalanga has a sophisticated and well-segmented tourism sector attracting both foreign and local investment interest.
The world’s most luxurious private game lodges are located around Kruger.
