African Art

African art on display at the entrance to Mac Mac water fall in Mpumalanga (formerly the Eastern Transvaal). This site is located midway between Sabie and Graskop and is part of a picturesque and scenic route in the eastern part of the country. These stalls offer a variety of crafts for tourists and augment eco-tourism for the local inhabitants.

Just outside Sabie is the Long Tom pass where the Boers made there last stand against the British in the Anglo Boer war. It is also the one of the sites where the legendary Kruger Millions (in Gold Bullion) was supposedly buried by the fleeing Boers. Nobody has ever found it, but it stimulates the old folklore and imagination to believe that it does exist.
