Kaapsehoop is truly a place to visit when in South Africa. Kaapsehoop is unrivaled in the green scenery and verdant beauty that it offers, thanks to being nestled high on an escarpment in the Mpumalanga Province, just outside Nelspruit. Misty mountains are occupied by wild birds and other animals, and the high African sky blankets the scene. Kaapsehoop has a fairy tale appeal, thanks to its quaint vibe and historical charm. It is about half an hour’s drive from Nelspruit, and 3.5 hours from Johannesburg.
