The Lowveld is situated in the eastern stretches of Mpumalanga province, and bordered by the game parks of Sabie and the Kruger National Park. It's one of South Africa’s most hospitable regions, renowned for its golden bushveld and warm subtropical climate.
Much of the Lowveld is rural. However, the region is also home to Mpumalanga’s bustling capital, Nelspruit, and to larger towns such as Barberton, Sabie and White River. Here thriving local economies are driven by the region's three major economic sectors – mining, agriculture and tourism.
Property owners in the Lowveld enjoy a tranquil lifestyle, and are in close proximity to some of the country’s largest tracts of unspoiled wilderness. Larger towns provide access to all essential amenities, while smaller towns are known for their friendliness and low crime.
The town of Nelspruit is the region’s economic and business hub, and properties there command the highest prices. Once you move beyond the more urbanised areas, properties are large and reasonably priced compared to many other areas of South Africa.
