Together with Cape Town, Mpumalanga is one of the premier tourism areas in South Africa. The Mpumalanga regions host a vast array of landscape, cultural and natural attractions, including the southern part of the world famous Kruger National Park. The final event of the Big5 is less than 45 minutes drive from the Kruger Park.


Recommended places to see and things to do near the event locations will be listed with links on the Big5 website:

Orienteering in Cape Town: Two local events will be organised in Cape Town the week before the Big5 (29 & 30 December 2011).  Further details will be posted on the website as soon as these become available. Cape Town is approximately 1450km from Johannesburg. Driving time is +/- 14 hours, so visitors are advised to fly.

Visas: Most visitors to South Africa are not required to obtain visas in advance.  For further information visit
