Komatipoort - SA's Hottest Little Town

Komatipoort, a small town located in the Mpumalanga Province of South Africa, has the distinction of being known as one of the country’s hottest towns, and with an average winter temperature of 26 degrees Celsius it is definitely the place to be when the winter chill sets in. Its picturesque setting at the confluence of the Komati and Crocodile Rivers, creating a haven for wildlife, is another reason for nature lovers to visit Komatipoort. Add to this the fact that the town is only eight kilometers from the Kruger National Park’s Crocodile Bridge Gate, five kilometers from the border of neighboring Mozambique and sixty-five kilometers from the border of Swaziland, and it is clear to see why Komatipoort is a popular holiday destination.

Komatipoort offers tourist accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. Visitors can enjoy day trips into the Kruger National Park, as well as fishing, elephant back safaris, golf, hiking, horse riding, bird watching and many other activities in and around the town. The clear night sky at Komatipoort offers a view of the starry heavens seldom seen by city dwellers, and it is simple pleasures like this that makes Komatipoort a special place to visit. As the catch phrase for this Mpumalanga town states, Komatipoort is definitely 'more than just a stop over'.
