Malolotja Nature Reserve  

Malolotja is on the kingdom’s northwest flank stretches from the historic iron ore mine at Ngwenya almost as far as Pigg’s Peak, and boasts the country’s highest waterfall among mountain scenery regarded by many as Southern Africa’s answer to the Alps. A vast array of habitats can be enjoyed via extensive trails up to weeklong hikes or joining a Treetop Canopy Tour and gliding through the forests’ upper reaches to catch sight of striking rock formations and towering cliff faces. Malolotja’s flora is widely varied the wildflowers in spring are particularly famous while the lists of birds and mammals each contain an impressive number of rarities. Accommodation in this, one of the kingdom’s most popular nature reserves, is a choice between log cabins and a campsite.
