Phalaborwa, also called ‘the city of two summers‘ because the subtropical weather. Phalaborwa is the only town that directly borderes Kruger NP, the home of the famous African marula tree and Amarula Cream Liqueur and has great other touristic activities to offer. Tourism and wildlife play an important role in the life here.
Phalaborwa is situated in the north eastern Lowveld. Phalaborwa is the Sotho word for ‘better than the south’. Phalaborwa experiences high summer temperatures, with a daily average temperature being 31 degrees Celsius. The rest of the year Phalaborwa offers comfortable and pleasant weather, with warm days and cool nights. There is an average annual rainfall of about 450mm. The rainy season starts in September and lasts until April. In winter there is little or no rain, which makes the nature very dry. All leaves will disappear and the most beautiful trees and flowers will make the nature still nice and coloured. This is also a perfect time to spot animals because the bush is very thin at this time.
