The bustling South African town of Komatipoort is where the Kruger National Park and the Mozambique border post beckons. Komatipoort lies at the crux of two rivers dividing the two countries and is a short 15km drive from the crocodile bridge entrance to Kruger. The town is an important farming centre too, with large scale production of cattle and tropical fruit.
The name Komatipoort is a combination of Swazi and Afrikaans, roughly translated as the place of river cows and the town was originally established both as a customs post and a railway junction on the border between South Africa and Mozambique.
Komatipoort is one of the hottest places in the country and even the winter days regularly exceed 25° Celsius. The town is easily reached from Pretoria and Johannesburg via the N4 national highway and its central location is ideal for holidaymakers wanting to combine a safari and beach vacation.
