Blue Mountain Lodge is in close proximity to the Kruger National Park, Private Game Lodges, Blyde River Canyon, Pilgrim’s Rest, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, affording our guests the opportunity to explore the surrounding area without having to travel great distances.

Guests can enjoy walking and hiking trails, bird watching (the contrasting vegetation attracts a myriad of bird life), botanical interests and fishing.

Eco-adventure involves minimising your impact on the land, increasing your environmental and cultural awareness and undergoing a positive nature experience. Mpumalanga offers you all that and more.
The province may not be a coastal region but at least you can take to the rapids of the Sabie, Blyde or Olifants rivers for some aqua action. Whether it’s a quiet float along the river to focus on the wildlife and scenery or an adrenaline-pumping rapids scream-fest, Mpumalanga’s rivers offer both and everything in between.
If you would prefer staying on dry land, you may want to climb on a quad bike and experience nature on wheels. Riders are given a crash course before setting off to assess their levels of experience, and although there may be a little technical riding involved, there are always experienced riders on hand to guide you through any sticky situations.
Eco-adventuring does not only involve spiking your adrenaline levels, you can also simply take a leisurely hike and enjoy nature in a more relaxed manner. Komatiland Forestry offers a number of hikes for you to enjoy, from the one-day Loerie Trail, Forest Fall Trail, Secretary Bird Trail and Rooikat Trail, to the multi-day Fanie Botha, Soutspansberg and Uitsoek hiking trails. You’ll be able to see, among others, bush pig, bushbuck, baboon, jack buzzard and, possibly, the rare bat hawk as you walk along any of the routes.
Head to Mpumalanga for a short, or long, adventure break – it may be just what you need to feel excited about life again.
