Kaapmuiden / Matsulu

Stretching from the foot of the Crocodile River Gorge through the dense indigenous forests of the western Lebombo Mountains, this region is home to large pawpaw and other fruit plantations, shy and rare animal species and large numbers of traditional Swazi-speaking people who settled here in the 1830s, after the predations of the Zulu king Shaka, and made the area their own.

Top Attractions

  • Fruit plantations include citrus, mango and some of the largest pawpaw plantations in the country.
  • Boondocks labyrinth is based in the labyrinth at the cathedral at Chartres in France but has been modified slightly to accommodate the trees. A place of peaceful contemplation.
  • Nukain Mabusa Stone Garden – a roadside gallery of painted stones at Low’s Creek
  • The Gould’s Salvation stream is at the head of the lovely Crocodile River valley. Did Gould find gold here? Well, who knows?
