    Geography, History and Economy

    Area: 10 250km²
    Description: Bushbuckridge Local Municipality is a presidential nodal point located in the south-eastern part of the Limpopo province and north-eastern part of the Mpumalanga province. The municipality is one of the two constituents of the former Bohlabela District Municipality (within Ba-Phalaborwa Local Municipality) further north, and Fetakgomo Local Municipality in the west. The municipal area provides a link to Lydenburg and other centres in the Lowveld, particularly Hoedspruit, Pilgrim's Rest and Graskop. Bushbuckridge Local Municipality can therefore be called the gateway to the major tourist attraction points in Mpumalanga and the eastern part of the Limpopo province.
