Alma is a small town situated south of Vaalwater in the Limpopo province of South Africa. The area is surrounded by green-gray bushveld vegetation and a few private game reserves are located in the malaria free area.

The Mokolo River originates near Alma at the confluence of the Sand River with the Grootspruit River in a flattish, open area with numerous koppies, before it flows through a steep gorge emerging above the town of Vaalwater. The town is served by Laerskool Alma, a primary and early secondary school situated 24 kilometres (15 mi) from Vaalwater.
