Activities and Scenery
If you come to see the Northern Lowveld of South Africa, you have chosen the ideal base. We are the hub of the Limpopo Lowveld and Drakensberg. We are the centre of the major tropical fruit farms, forestry game farms and game reserves of our country. The Drakensburg which begins in the Eastern Cape ends here. The Soutpansberg Mountains are 90kms away and the Kruger Park 45 minutes. The largest portion of the Kruger is at our doorstep. The greatest area of private game reserves, both small and gigantic, are our neighbours. We lie at the foothills of the mountains that rise 1500 meters in 30 kilometres.
Jurassic Park is on our doorstep. The Modjadji Cycad Reserve is the largest concentration of a single cycad species in the world. We have the second largest baobab in our country, the largest remnant of indigenous forest in our country, mountain grasslands and spectacular views.
Around us is fine scenery of vast contrast, highland and lowland, forest and savannah, cool and moist, hot and dry all within a radius of 50 kilometres. Canopy Tours, Canyoning, quad bike trails, abseiling, rock climbing, tubing, white water rafting, magnificent golf courses, crocodile farms, reptile parks, elephants safari’s, game reserves, wild life rehabilitation centres and many more are all within easy reach.
