Umoja Kruger, wildlife without fences’ we have all sorts of wildlife roaming the garden. From wharthogs to impala to elephant and at night the hyena’s, civets, and occationally even a leopard. We are at 100 meters from the Kruger fence and 8 km from the Phalaborwa gate. Although wildlife is the main attraction, being Kruger neighbours, you can also undertake a trip to the Panorama route with the Three rondavels and Bourke’s Luck Potholes that is 130 km away. Or go for the green lush Tzaneen area with the Debengeni falls, Magoebaskloof and exhilirating ziplining over the Letaba gorge, also 130 km away. The Hoedspruit sanctuaries such as HESC or Moholoholo or Jessica the hippo with a boattrip on the Blyde River Canyon are a nice outing as well. And last but not least, a sunset boatcruise on the Olifantsriver is one of our and our guests’ favorite. Plenty to see and do so not seldom do guests come back for a week to fully enjoy their stay.
