It just doesn’t get any better than this.

Speaking of animals, what is the best way to view said gorgeous animals? By safari of course! Go on an afternoon game drive or see what animals lurk in the bushes and behind trees at night. Perhaps, if you are lucky, you will get to witness a cheetah run.

It’s an hour’s drive away from Hoedspruit

What’s the big deal about that? If you get bored with your average safari, you can go on a safari in a hot air balloon or see the wildlife from an elephant’s height! Is there any better way to experience Africa while on holiday?

Hiking Trails

Perhaps you are afraid of heights or tired of driving around in search of wildlife. You can always go on a riveting hike. Rise early morning just as the sun is coming up, strap on those walking shoes and see where the hiking trails lead you.

Amarula Lapa

You simply cannot deem your safari holiday complete without having enjoyed a glass of silky Amarula Cream while watching the sun set. Where better to do so than at the Amarula Lapa itself? Situated near the Phalaborwa Gate of Kruger National Park, here you can relax and stretch your legs. Perhaps you will leave with a gift for someone.
