The Lowveld offers some of the most beautiful hiking routes in the country. The ones that stand out is the Fanie Botha Hiking Trail (Sabie), Gustav Klingbiel Nature Reserve (Lydenburg), Kaapsehoop Hiking Trail, Blyde River Canyon and the route at the Lowveld National Botanical Garden (Mbombela). These trails are a good way to explore nature and be budget-savvy.
