The sub-tropical paradise of the Kruger Lowveld

Here body and soul get re-united and revitalised.

The name "Hazyview" aptly describes the hazy, lazy days during summers, typical of the African Bushveld whilst on safari. Hazyview is entitled to boast about its famous neighbours: the largest nature reserve in South Africa and the third largest canyon in the world. Hazyview is known for being ideally positioned between the Kruger National Park, Sabi Sand Game Reserve, and the Drakensberg escarpment as well as the world-famous Blyde River Canyon.

More on Hazyview holidays

Hazyview has a lot more to offer than proximity to must-see destinations. This small town is named after the haze that settles above the landscape on hot summer days. It's primarily a farming community and is, interestingly, the world's best destination for growing bananas. Litchis, mangoes, avocados, oranges and macadamias also thrive in its sub-tropical climate.

Situated on the banks of the Sabie River, Hazyview has enough adventure to keep adrenaline junkies satisfied including river rafting, horse-riding, ziplining and quad biking. There is also a 27-metre abseil down a granite boulder at Makuhlu.

If you're after a more relaxed experience, try the Shangana Cultural Village, which is owned and run by the local people and gives visitors an insight into the Shangaan culture. There's also a market that sells arts and crafts. At the Hazyview Elephant Sanctuary, you'll get a chance to feed and touch the magnificent giants.
