Renowned for its abundance of wildlife, mountain scenery, indigenous forests and cascading waterfalls, the Mopani region is one of the last unspoilt corners of South Africa.
One of the most diverse regions in terms of both nature and culture, Mopani is a timeless and unhurried destination offering tourists an unmistakably African experience.
Main centres of the region include Phalaborwa, Modjadjiskloof, Tzaneen and Giyani, and each offers fascinating cultural and ethnic attractions and aweinspiring scenery.
The region has been earmarked for its tourism potential, and it offers easy access to Big Five game parks, adventure activities and fascinating cycad reserves. Home to the diverse cultures of the Shangaan, BaPedi, vhaVenda and Balobedu, tourists can immerse themselves in beadwork, pottery and wood carvings.
Be sure to visit Magoebaskloof for incredibly dramatic mountain views – perfect for a romantic getaway. Enjoy trout fishing, a round of golf or an energising hike through a forest and let the stress of city life melt away.
