Musina: keep driving - Musina as a destination? Unless you are going to stay at one of the lodges in the area to view game or you are on your way to Zimbabwe, it's not somewhere you'd really want to go to. The best thing about Musina is the road out of it.

Interesting Region - Musina is a busy border town with adequate shops, restaurants and accommodation. For a more tranquil environment closer to nature you can choose to stay out side of town on one of many farms and establishments offering accommodation that suits every body’s pocket . Take time to relax and enjoy what is on offer or explore the region from Venda / Soutpansberg to the Limpopo river and from Alldays / Mapungubwe to the Kruger National Park.

Musina - The Crown Jewel Of The Bushveld - As we washed the dust out of our thoughts at a cosy little pub in Musina after a hard days travel, it immediately became apparent that Musina was no longer a small little town, famous only as the northern most town in South Africa, but has evolved into a bustling border town boasting shopping malls which leaves visitors spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping, apartment complexes and a wide array of other businesses that just a few short years ago did not exist. Primarily driven by cross-border trade, Musina has become the Gateway To Africa. Diamond and Coal mining as well as Tourism are the other major industries which fuels the town’s economy. We were on our way to Zimbabwe for a well deserved vacation and decided to stop over in Musina for 3 days to visit family and Mapungubwe National Park. To our delight, the government has invested heavily in infrastructure in Musina. Most of the town’s roads are pothole-free and Mapungubwe was breathtaking and very well managed. The lodge where we stayed was neat, clean and very affordable with stunning views over Boabab valley. Due to our party being big, we where split up into 3 groups with the other 2 groups sleeping at a B&B in Musina. We where surprised at the many and quality of options available for our accommodation requirements. We took the family for dinner at a nice restaurant and everyone had a good time. Overall, we loved Musina. The town itself has the feel of a busy city offering most of the products and services you can find in the city while on the other hand a short 5 minute drive takes you out of town where the beauty and majesty and silence of the Bushveld with the mighty Boabab trees and abundant wild life takes your breath away. We are very glad we stopped over in Musina to recharge our batteries before taking on Beitbridge border post to cross over into Zim for our holiday. In our opinion Musina is the crown jewel of the Bushveld.
