The N3 Gateway region stretches from Pretoria in the North to Valley of a Thousand Hills in the South, traversing four provinces, namely KwaZulu-Natal, Free State, Mpumalanga and Gauteng. The region incorporates cross-border tourism with Lesotho through Phuthaditjhaba, Caledonspoort and Sani Pass and includes the Battlefields Route up to Newcastle.
The Free State lies in the heart of South Africa, with the Kingdom of Lesotho nestling in the hollow of its bean-like shape. Lying between the Vaal River in the north and the Orange River in the south, the region is characterised by flat, rolling grassland and crop fields, rising to lovely sandstone mountains in the northeast.
KwaZulu-Natal is known as the garden province of South Africa. It is a subtropical region of lush and well-watered valleys, washed by the warm Indian Ocean. One of the country’s most popular tourist destinations.
