The trout, tulip and granite capital of Mpumalanga has become the gateway to the escarpment and the Highlands Meander. A major attraction to this sub-alpine town is the "flower farm" - an unforgettable sight in September when tulips and daffodils are in full bloom. Belfast's black granite, originating from one of only two open quarries in the world, has become known as the purest deposit internationally. But ultimately, Belfast is renowned for its fly fishing. The spectacular Rapids Waterfall, is part of the picturesque surrounds enjoyed by fisherfolk and hikers alike.
