The Kruger National Park
The world famous Kruger Park, with its abundance of animals, is a must to visit. Take a guided day tour or drive yourself into the 20,000 square kilometer Kruger National Park. The park stretches from the small Drakensberg Mountains to Mozambique. This makes it one of the largest parks in the world.
It is home to the BIG 5, as well as a multitude of plains game, birds, and several species of fauna and flora unique to the lowveld. There are several camps with restaurants and picnic areas in the park to stretch your legs and a network of roads to ensure you have an authentic wildlife adventure.
The Kruger National Park is about 20 minutes away from our lodge. This is a must on everyone’s bucket list!
The Panarama Route
The famous Panarama Route extends over two provinces: Mpumalanga and Limpopo. It includes the Blyde River Canyon, one of the largest and greenest canyons in the world. It offers a wealth of attractions, making it one of the most popular routes to explore all of Africa. It offers magnificent views and waterfalls. See the Mac Mac Falls, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the three rondavels, God’s windows, Graskop and much more.
Blyde Canyon Adventure Center
Enjoy the splendor of the world’s third largest canyon… from the water. A guided tour takes you to the rare living Kadishi Tufa waterfall and the three rondavels. An abundance of wildlife will distract you as you learn more and more about the natural history of the Blyde Canyon.
Hans Merensky Golf Estate
Hans Merensky golf Estate is located on the outskirts of Phalaborwa. For the sports enthusiasts among us, less than 8 kilometers from Masorini, there is an opportunity to play a relaxing round of golf. Hans Merensky is located in a beautiful area in the middle of the wild, which you can regularly find on the course itself.
South of Phalaborwa is the Olifants River. This is one of the largest rivers in the Kruger National Park and is less than a 30-minute drive from Masorini. To get to the Olifants River, you first drive through the largest mine in South Africa and you regularly encounter an elephant. Once you have arrived, you can cross the river with an unforgettable boat trip, while you can enjoy a nice drink and snack. During the boat trip you can enjoy a breathtaking view and at the end of the day you can see a great sunset. The name Olifants River says it all. From the boat you will regularly spot elephants, hippos, crocodiles and many other animals in the water or on the side.
View point mine
Phalaborwa is traditionally a mining village. It has the largest opencast mine in South Africa and the third largest in the world. The opencast mine has a diameter of no less than two kilometers. You can drive up by car and from there you have a magnificent view of what Phalaborwa is so proud of.
