Gateway Lowveld Precinct

The historical Halls Farmstall and the surrounding area, including the filling station, was established by the original landowner, HL Hall and Sons, in 1918. The Gateway Lowveld Precinct Association (GPA), now managed by Spaces Places & Partnerships, was established in 2018 together with the sale of a portion thereof (which is to be developed as a drive-through fast food restaurant). In 2019, Shell bought the portion comprising the filling station, becoming the third member of the GPA. Halls Properties remains the owner of the rest of the site.
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 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.
