Surrounding Lowveld

The area to the west of Kruger National Park includes the popular town of Hazyview – a base from which to explore the Kruger and also to visit the nearby Elephant Whispers sanctuary and explore the stunning 156km Panorama Route along the Drakensberg Escarpment to encounter the spectacular Blyde River Canyon, Gods Window and numerous waterfalls. Visit the gold-mining town of Pilgrim’s Rest for a chance to pan for gold and learn about the early gold prospectors’ stories. For the adventurous, white water rafting, hot air ballooning, rock climbing, bungee jumping, and caving are all possibilities – as is freefalling 68 metres at 180km per hour on a ‘Big Swing’…if you so wish!
