The Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency (MTPA) is ready to welcome all visitors to a safer Mpumalanga in advance of the Metro FM Music Awards (MMAs) on May 6 at Mbombela Stadium.
“We are more than ready to provide different tourist experiences in Mpumalanga during the weekend from May 4 to 8. The experience varies from spectacular landscapes, scenic beauty and high altitudes through the Panorama Route offering waterfalls, God’s Window, the Gorge Lift Company, natural pools, adventure, natural water-rock convolutions and the scenic beauty of the Three Rondavels. The North East of the Lowveld escarpment explores wildlife in the Kruger National Park, cultural vibes at Shabalala Interpretation Cultural Centre and many more,” said Mduduzi Vilakazi, the MTPA’s acting CEO.
“The MMAs are staged during the autumn season, introducing tourists to the serene, tranquil, sunny and warm Mpumalanga winter. Various affordable packages are available from various tour operators, which include accommodation, game drives, hiking trails, adrenaline-rushed adventure activities, cultural exposure and spiritual excursions. A number of events are also planned for the duration of the MMAs weekend, making the visit to Mpumalanga vibey, lively and an electrifyingly safe nightlife.”
“The MMAs provide economic spin-offs such as market exposure to new entrants in the tourism business, bringing to life township and rural economy, and creating short-term job opportunities,” he said.
“An event of this magnitude further plays a significant role in creating awareness about investment opportunities that the province may offer as people travel not only for leisure or relaxation or entertainment, but for investment opportunities as well,” he said.
