KwaMhlanga is a town in Mpumalanga, South Africa and is the spiritual home of the Ndebele tribe that settled here in the early 18th century.

This town developed into the administrative centre for the local government, and now houses the government administration for the North Western Region of the Mpumalanga Province.

To the north of KwaMhlanga, on the R568 near the village of Klipfontein, is located the Manala Royal Kraal; the Ndzundza Mabhoko Royal Kraal is situated further north at Weltevreden. By special arrangement, both of these kraals can be visited by small parties.
