With the beaches out of business for December and the last two weeks of the year upon us, if you have not yet booked your holiday escape but you are itching to get away, the Lowveld is where you need to be.

At Greenway Woods Resort, nestled away in the heart of the Lowveld, among the legendary Blue Gum trees that characterise the area, you will find the perfect spot for relaxation and rejuvenation this December. Our recently renovated resort is an oasis away from the busy world and guests can sit back and enjoy the beautiful Lowveld heat and hospitality while lounging by the swimming pool or under the air conditioning in their bedroom.

There are many reasons why the Lowveld is considered by so many to be the ultimate holiday destination. As a part of the picturesque Mpumalanga Province, the Lowveld is the perfect combination of bushveld and subtropical landscape. It is home to stunning waterfalls, lush grasslands, and mountains made for hiking. When you choose the Lowveld for your summer getaway, this is what you can look forward to:

  1. Hiking

And not necessarily the strenuous kind, unless that is your thing. When you go hiking in the Lowveld, you will find that there are quite a few interesting attractions and trails to explore. You can easily spend a day out in nature, just enjoying the fresh air and taking in all of the sights and smells. Most hiking trails in the area can be accessed for free, but if you are looking for something a little more complex, you can always look online and make a booking at a longer trail.

  1. Soak up the sun

If there ever was a year where vitamin D was a necessity, this is the one. Luckily for you, if you visit the Lowveld, you won’t ever run the risk of running out of sunshine. We are known as the province of the rising sun for a very good reason, and most of our summer days are filled with a luscious sunlight that will warm your heart and your soul. But always keep in mind that too much sun can be a really bad thing and you could end up ruining your holiday by getting a nasty sunburn.

  1. Go on your own tour

There are many beautiful attractions in the area and many of them are historical destinations. If you are a fan of history and you are looking for a place to explore the past, nearby towns like Barberton, Graskop, Sabie and Pilgrim’s Rest are all great options. Barberton and Pilgrim’s Rest in particular are great places to go as they have many museums and other historical places to explore.

Should you still be looking for a place to enjoy a Mpumalanga or Lowveld holiday, you can always come to Greenway Woods.
