... is located in the Panorama North area of the Northeast region in South Africa.

The town of Phalaborwa sits outside the northerly entrance into Kruger Park Central.

During the 1960's huge copper deposits were discovered here and enormous open cast mines now exist to the south of town which can be seen from a viewpoint on Foskor Road. Although not terribly attractive, the town makes for a reasonable stopover for self-drivers on a tight budget.

Activities include a golf course and boat cruises on the Oliphants River. Parks authorities collect from town accommodation for excursions into the park, notably the bush dinner and night drive.

We tend to use accommodation here exceedingly rarely as most international visitors prefer to stay in the surrounding Kruger Private Reserves.
