Four Fun Things to Do Near Phalaborwa

The small, mining town of Phalaborwa is famed for its proximity to the Kruger National Park – but there are a few other places, eateries and adventures to marvel at in this little town.

Situated in the very heart of Limpopo, the town makes for a fascinating place to visit. Not only for its climate, terrain and closeness to the Kruger – but also for the host of adventures you can enjoy in the area.

Let’s take a look at four fun things one can to do near Phalaborwa:

#1 Drive in the Kruger

It would be impossible to compile a list on Phalaborwa without including an adventure in the glorious, world-famous Kruger National Park.

So, while you are a stone’s throw away, make it your goal to take a guided game tour of the Kruger or embark on a self-drive safari experience.

You can enjoy seeing the wonders of the African bush… and if you’re blessed with good luck, you may also catch some great glimpses of some (if not all) of the Big Five!

Tip: If you wish to see a wider variety of game, head further in than the northern Kruger Park, where the Phalaborwa Gate is located.

But if you do head through the northern part of the Park, entering through Phalaborwa Gate, you can expect to see some interesting vegetation, including Mopane trees and acacia, and elephants (who especially love the Mopaneveld), giraffe, zebra, wild dogs and more.
