For over 130 years, the Lowvelder Newspaper has been the trusted source of local news for residents of this beautiful bushveld region of South Africa. Established in 1886, the paper is today the winner of prestigious awards and has award winning journalists on its editorial team. With a print order of 18 000 copies on Tuesdays and 19 500 copies on Wednesdays, the Lowvelder is distributed throughout the entire north-eastern expanse of Mpumalanga, and its impressively low price means that its readership base receives great value for money.

The paper’s reporting focus is on local (and hyper local) news, local sporting events, community events and social gatherings, local governance, entertainment, shopping bargains, business news and notable school happenings. As a community member, the paper is also actively involved in community projects and charities, and fully supports the region’s various service organisations.

The Lowvelder’s area of distribution includes Nelspruit, White River, Kanyamazane, Barberton, Malelane, Lydenburg, Hazyview, Sabie, Graskop, Bushbuckridge, Waterval Boven, the Kruger National Park and Shongwe.
