This northeast corner of South Africa is dominated by the massive Kruger National Park
, which runs for 350km along the border with Mozambique
The majority of international visitors simply fly in and out of the region for a short safari.
For those wishing to take a broader look at the region tend to take a self-drive vehicle and also explore the neighbouring areas.Panorama South
contains the town of Hazyview
, the usual start point for guests arriving into the airport at Nelspruit
, with lots of good rural lodges, fine dining and outdoor activities. Higher into the mountains are the spectacular views of Blyde Canyon Upper
, plus various waterfalls and historic gold mining settlements.Panorama North
contains the more remote rural lodges in beautiful Letaba
, plus the Lowveld
areas around Hoedspruit
lies much further north and contains the archaeological sites of Mapungubwe
and the mountain retreats of Soutpansberg
To take a photo tour of the whole area, start on the Nelspruit
