There's magic in Machadodorp, found in the radioactive hot springs which are said to have healing powers because of the high sulphur content. If nothing else, relaxing in a pool of warm water surrounded by nature is extremely relaxing.

Everything about the Mpumalanga town of Machadodorp is outdoors. Machadodorp fly fishing is superb, since the Elands River which runs through Machadodorp is well known for its trout population, as is the nearby Nooitgedacht Dam. The prime Machadodorp fly fishing spot is the Machado Flyfishing Club, with two dams well stocked with rainbow and golden trout, alongside naturally occurring large-mouth bass and tilapia. This very popular Machadodorp fly fishing club is also host to the Laerskool Machado Potjiekos Competition, with both locals and visitors contributing to the festivities, eagerly vying for the best 'pot food' around.

Machadodorp is also renowned for the many hiking trails which take hikers through the most magnificent scenery that includes yellowwood forest,  grasslands, waterfalls and sand stone mazes. Another amazing, historical place to explore are the Bakoni Ruins just outside Machadodorp. Described as South Africa's 'lost city', the hills around Machadodorp are terraced with thousands of stone walls which form part of a vast complex of fields, roads and settlements, originally home to the baKoni people, who first inhabited this Mpumalanga area in the early 18th century.

After all is said and done, the Machdodorp Hog Pub & Grill is the local hangout, where friendly staff will make you feel at home in no time. This Machadodorp mainstay provides good, home made food and cold beer, and is popular with bikers, locals and tourists passing through. Once you've turned into Machadodorp from the N4, the bright colours and waving flags welcome you in.

Machadodorp B&B accommodation is the ideal stop-over for the travel weary businessman or tourist, whilst Machadodorp Self Catering accommodation on the banks of the Komati River is also sought after. Investigate the Machadodorp Hotels in the heart of the Highlands Meander - This is perhaps not as cost effective as the Machadodorp Self Catering accommodation, which is ideal for an affordable getaway for friends and families seeking quality time.
