is located in the Panorama
area of the Northeast
region in South Africa
Letaba the most northerly section of the Mpumulanga Drakensburg, a beautiful well-watered upland area of verdant forests, plantations and fruit farms. Centred around the town of Tzaneen down on the Lowveld, the area is great for hiking, mountain biking, quad-biking, river-rafting and horse-riding, as well as points of historic interest such as the old gold mining village of Haenertsburg. The area is much less visited than similar mountain landscapes in the Panorama
region further south and is all the better for it.
On self-drive trips it tends to work best with Kruger North
, or as a diversion off the main N1 highway between Johannesburg and the Zimbabwe border.
The best of the accommodation here is set amongst the fertile foothills to the south of Tzaneen ...Kings Walden Guest House
... is the clear stand-out in this area, a relatively upmarket and rather chic little owner-run establishment.
