Gateway Lowveld encompasses the Farm Stall, which stocks the freshest fruit and vegetables along with the Lowveld’s favourite nuts, biltong, honey, jams, marmalades, and a wonderful collection of Lowveld souvenirs; their coffee shop, which is a popular destination for travellers and locals to enjoy a meal on the veranda; and the Fever Tree Nursery and Landscaping, which stocks beautiful indigenous flowers and plants. Other attractions in the precinct include Bicycle Boyz, All Tacked Up, Galito’s and the Shell filling station.  The centre also has a number of ATMs for convenience.

With the Mbombela Stadium adjacent to the Precinct, future upgrades will seek to optimise the opportunities and requirements associated with the stadium’s development and additional offerings that would provide suitable amenities for all visitors to the centre.

The Precinct Association established for the area ensures that the property owners are actively involved in the management of their area which maximises the return on their investments.


Mataffin, the area within the Gateway Lowveld precinct is situated, is legendary as the original settlement of the region’s first full-time farmers, HL Hall & Sons.

It has a rich history, from transport riders making their way through the area on their way to Maputo (then Lourenco Marques) and mining settlements in the region to livestock farmers bringing their cattle down from the escarpment to graze in the winter.

In the early years, the Farm Riverside served as a stop-over for travellers to rest. This tradition has continued over the years, with Gateway Lowveld now the modern version of this, being a stop to refuel and rest for travellers on route to the Kruger National Park, the Lowveld’s other amazing attractions and Mozambique.

The area’s strong trade and transport links with Mozambique, following the development of the Maputo Corridor, led to the N4 becoming a major trade, transport and tourism route through the Lowveld.

The perfect location of Gateway Lowveld provides tourists, motorists and businesspeople with a convenient, attractive and accessible stop-over en route to their destination.
