Every November in the south eastern highlands of Mpumalanga, the frog is not merely a prince (or princess) waiting to be kissed.  Little green and yellow web-footed frogs have a festival in their honour. 

All sorts of activities are planned around these precious little amphibians. With around 270 lakes and pans within a 20km radius of Lake Chrissie, this is a frog lovers’ paradise.

As the sun sets join in the frog chorus, hop on a tractor for a special “frog-nite tour”, and then, around the camp fire, sip your soup (no frogs included) whilst listening to story tellers and experts talk on all things amphibian.
