Top 8 reasons to visit Tzaneen
1. Tzaneen is a regular recipient of the cleanest town award. Take a walk through the shopping district and visit the gardens and the interesting museum. The town hosts regular events such as a rally, a country fair and festivals, expos and marathons through the year. The picturesque dam is located alongside the town.
2. Hike the Letaba Trail in the Hans Merensky Nature Reserve. Expect to see hippo and crocodile along the river banks. While at the reserve, bathe in the swimming pool, fed by a thermal spring that releases water at a piping hot 104° Celsius. The waters are said to relieve rheumatism.
3. Day visitors are welcome at the Baobab Tree Bar in Modjadjiskloof, a bar built inside the world’s largest living baobab tree. This ancient tree hollowed out naturally and the farm owners built a bar in the hollow, wide enough to comfortably seat 15 people. The record is 54 people, one would guess all highly intoxicated!
