Sawubona’s Art Director Shaun Mallett visited the province of Mpumalanga and let his inner child run loose at the Dinosaur Park, home to incredible life-size displays of pre-historic creatures. Visitors can also get to view (real) Nile crocodiles and the park is surrounded by a lush rainforest. The Dinosaur Park is located close to the Sudwala Caves – said to be some of the oldest dolomite caves in the world and a major tourist attraction in the area.
The Sudwala Caves offer a great family outing and there are guided tours on offer. The basic tour lasts around an hour, but more adventurous travellers can book a spot on the five-hour Crystal Tour. The caves are open daily from 8.30am-4pm.
While you’re in the area, visit Mpumalanga’s scenic attractions along the Panorama route including the Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, a myriad of waterfalls, Pilgrim’s Rest and the world-famous Kruger National Park.
