Welcome to Graskop the Home of Mpumalanga

From Gauteng, the high plateau grasslands of Mpumalanga stretch eastward for hundreds of kilometres, offering outstanding attractions, specially for those who seek tranquillity. Witbank, the first major town in this region, is the centre of the local coal mining industry, while the Botshabelo Mission Station near Middelburg is a romantic reminder of the days when the African veld was a frontier land. To the east, the brisk cool highlands around Belfast, Dullstroom, Machadodorp and Lydenburg compromise one of the few remaining natural highveld areas in Mpumalanga and provide well-stocked trout streams and spectacular scenery.

The town of Graskop is perched on a spur of the Mauchsberg at an altitude of 1493 meters and dates way back to 1837, when Andries Potgieter passed through with the Great Trek in search of greener pastures in the north. In his memoirs, he mentions leaving the womenfolk in the area now known as Graskop, which means grassy peak, while he went down the escarpment in search of a route to Delagoa Bay, now Maputo.

Graskop boasts a fime array of accommodation and activities such as the Big Swing, Kruger National Park, Quad trails, Hiking, Archery, Gold panning, paint ball to mention a few. Our surrounding towns are Sabie, Pilgrims rest, Hazyview and sight seeing spots as The Blyde River Canyon, Gods Window, Berlin & Lisbon falls, Bourke's luck potholes, The three rondavels and Wonder view.
