Established in 1903, Witbank is a significant coal-mining city in South Africa's Mpumalanga province. With steel mills and power stations located in and around the city, pollution is becoming an issue. Nevertheless, Witbank consists of an interesting history and several fascinating landmarks. Cheap car hire in Witbank is available for visitors.
In 2006, to follow the surrounding municipality, Witbank had its named officially changed to Emalahleni. Witbank lays less than 100kms from a selection of South Africa's largest cities, including Johannesburg and Pretoria. A railway and highway connects the cities, and are easily reached via car hire in Witbank.
For those travellers using the town of Witbank for a stop-over, or visiting some of the sights on offer, Witbank has a sound range of accommodation to select. They range from upmarket hotels like the Protea Hotel chain, to comfortable guesthouses and lodges.
Witbank is not renowned for its tourism. Many visitors to the town elect to tour the area as a daytrip from Johannesburg. However, the Witbank Dam is the Southern Hemisphere's largest municipal dam, and is located to the east of the city. Many tourists make their way to Witbank to view the massive reservoir. Getting to the dam can be easily achieved with car rental in Witbank downtown.
Several other areas of interest are worthy of mention. These include tours of several enormous coal mines, Ndebele Village, Greenside Colliery Golf Club, and daytrips to surrounding towns such as Middelburg. Unfortunately, much of the town's natural beauty is deteriorating as a result of the increase in mining production.
