KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

Kruger National Park offers

a wildlife experience that

ranks with the best in Africa.

Established in 1898 to

protect the wildlife of South

Africa, this national park is

nearly 2 million ha.


THREE RONDAWELS

Tthe ‘Three Rondawels,

also called 'Three Sisters’)

are three huge spirals of

dolomite rock rising out

of the far wall of the

Blyde River canyon.


HISTORIC PILGRIMS

REST

The history of this small

delightful village dates

back to 1873 when a

miner, Alex Patterson,

discovered gold on the farm

Ponieskrantz. The diggers

called it Pilgrim's Rest

because here, at last, after

so many false trails, they

had found their home.


GOD'S WINDOW

With magnificent views,

canyons, rock formations and

waterfalls, God's Window is

truly an area of breathtaking

scenic splendour.

Gods Window is so called for the

panoramic view of the Lowveld

SUDWALA CAVES

The Sudwala Caves

are the oldest known

caves in the world.

 

Besides the awesome

rock displays the

caverns also boast an

array of calcium

formations,still growing.



MAC MAC FALLS

This waterfall was originally

a single stream, but gold

miners blasted it with dynamite

to divert the river in an attempt

to work the rich gold-bearing

reef over which it plunges.



BOURKE'S LUCK POTHOLES

The Potholes were named after

a gold digger, Tom Burke, who

staked a claim nearby.  Although

his claim did not produce a

single ounce of gold, he correctly

predicted that large gold deposits

would be found in the area.



LOWVELD BOTANICAL GARDENS

The character of the Garden is

shaped by the two main rivers that

cut across it, namely the Crocodile

River and the Nels River.
