    Description: The Emakhazeni Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated within the Nkangala District in the heart of the Mpumalanga Province. It is bordered by City of Mbombela in the east and Steve Tshwete in the west. It is the largest of the six municipalities in the district, making up almost a third of its geographical area.

     The area is a nature-lover's paradise, South Africa's premier fly fishing mecca, host to some of the subcontinent's rarest birds, and offers the best rock climbing and most spectacular wild flower displays – all just two hours from the metropolitan centres of Gauteng and Mozambique.
     The Trout Triangle area is situated on the highest part of the Steenkampsberg Plateau at approximately 2 072m above sea level, with the Dullstroom station being the highest point in Mpumalanga. The Suikerboschkop koppies are situated in the west of the area.
