Makhonjwa Geotrail

Contact Info
19 Judge Street, Barberton, Mpumalanga, South Africa

The geotrail has been developed to preserve this geological heritage through building awareness and interest amongst local stakeholders and tourists – both local and international. It is a matchless geological resource.

The Barberton Makhonjwa mountains of the Barberton Greenstone Belt are now on the tentative list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Site programme. The geotrail uses richly-illustrated panels that draw aside the curtains of arcane geological communication, and reveal the significance of the Barberton Greenstone Belt in every-day language and concepts. This geotrail is a bucketlist candidate, and something for everyone from families on leisure breaks to geology students to enjoy. The Barberton Makhonjwa Geotrail takes you on a journey into the mists of an impossibly distant past –– more than 3 billion years ago.
