Although most of the smaller towns in this part of Mpumalanga are close to the Kruger National Park, Hazyview is the closest – just a short hop to the Phabeni, Numbi and Kruger Gates. It’s a pretty little town with some lovely guest houses on the outskirts, and a couple of good restaurants.
If you’re not the sort who likes to keep your feet on the ground, you could go for a microlight flip, a scenic helicopter flight or even ride in a hot air balloon. There are fun mountain biking trails, which you could do as an escorted trip, if you wish, horse trails, kloofing trips or paddling on the Sabie River, abseiling and, of course, escorted safaris into Kruger National Park.
For something a bit more cultural, you could tour a Shangaan village or a coffee plantation and roastery.
