Lowveld Legogote – the TANDASA way
Lowveld Legogote – the TANDASA way, is home to the seat of the provincial administration in Nelspruit. This includes the wild horse town of Kaapsehoop, creative and eccentric White River, and the vibey township KaNyamazane. The fairytale village of Kaapsche Hoop lies in the hills directly above Nelspruit, roughly 30 kilometres outside of town. Easy to reach from Nelspruit, it is often shrouded in mist and home to a great many wild horses. Here you will find Sudwala Caves, which are the oldest dolomite caves in the world. Also to be seen is a mesmerizing butterfly garden and a botanical garden with an enormous collection of cycads and African rainforest. The Lowveld Legogote Region is situated in the lower reaches of the Mpumalanga escarpment

The Lowveld Botanical Garden is all about the two rivers that run through it. These fashion the garden with a unique quality of its own. The Crocodile River enters the garden with a tremendous rush, gushing through a narrow pot-holed solid rock gorge. Whilst the Nels River, cascades down a waterfall – the two rivers content to merge in a somewhat gentler pool.
The Sudwala caves are the oldest caves on earth and encase the oldest dolomite chamber in the world. The Owen Hall extends 70 metres in diameter and reaches a height of 37 meters. The tallest stalagmite was discovered in the half kilometre stretch that is open to the public. The stalagmite stands 11m high and is accented by dominant drip-rock formations. Experience a comfortable walking tour through this vast subterranean complex of stalactites and stalagmites. The caves are definitely an illuminating experience of mammoth corridors and halls.
