The Kruger National Park is one the world’s best bastions of wildlife sightings, take a guided game drive from one of our nearby resorts for the chance to spot all of the Big Five in one nature reserve, or take a self-drive excursion so you can stop off at one of the picnic spots in the park, visit some of the rest camps or just spend hours looking for birds at the waterholes.
Bourke’s Luck Potholes are a unique rock formation filled with swirling pools of water. Take a stroll along the boardwalks to admire nature’s handiwork and pop into the onsite museum for a look at the displays showcasing the natural history of the area.
Blyde River Canyon is one of the largest in the world and a delight for hikers and photographers.
