Wildlife Areas in Mpumalanga, South Africa.

Mpumalanga is known as the home of the Kruger National Park, but here is the Sunrise Province’s list of its Top Ten Unexpected Discoveries.

Wakkerstroom and nearby Chrissiesmeer offer the largest populations of endangered bird species in the country. In addition to many water birds — including startlingly pink flamingos — the keen birder might be able to tick some tricky boxes such as Rudd’s Lark, Botha’s Lark and the Blue Korhaan.

The Kruger Lowveld region is located in the north eastern corner of South Africa predominantly in Mpumalanga Province. The region borders the countries of Mozambique and Swaziland and includes the southern half of the Kruger National Park. It is situated about 400km (250 miles) from Johannesburg and Pretoria; and 1800km (1120 miles) from Cape Town.
