Barberton

Barberton - South Africa, with the Jacaranda's in full bloom.

The scenic town of Barberton in Mpumalanga South Africa, is nestled at the foot of some of the oldest and most spectacular mountain ranges in the world. Barberton affords the traveller and nature lover an ideal opportunity to travel back to the dawn of time more than 3.500 million years ago! The geological and biological base of the Barberton Mountainland is unique on the planet and the scenery compliments this spectacular and wonderful area.

Apart from being home to some of the oldest rocks and first life forms on the planet, Barberton has a rich cultural background with gold pioneering history and Swazi pastoralists playing a major part. The richest gold discoveries ever have been made at places like Eureka City and the Golden Quarry. The Victorian heritage is omnipresent in the town with several architectural examples of the lifestyle of the 19th century open to the public.

Adventurers are equally catered for with 4x4 trails, hiking trails, day tours, microlight flying, hot air ballooning and scenic drives to mention but a few.


Why not come and explore off the beaten track: visit Barberton, the Gem of the Lowfeld!
