The open grasslands that stretch through Satara and N'wanetsi mean that you are also most likely to spot lion in the area. Orpen is known for the predominance of predators in the area.

Three Rondavels

The Three Rondavels is a natural rock formation on the edge of the Blyde River Canyon along the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga. Shaped like three rondavels (African huts), the rocks are said to portray how traditional huts have evolved over the years with the most basic on the left hand side leading towards the more modern beehive hut on the far right.


Blyde River Canyon

Blyde River Canyon Reserve is situated against the Greater Drakensberg escarpment and includes natural wonders such as the Bourke's Luck Potholes, the Three Rondavels, Pinnacle Rock and God's Window. Many visitors to this region enjoy the visual splendour of combining the Panorama Route with exceptional game viewing in the Kruger National Park to create a spectacular itinerary in Mpumalanga.


Panorama Route

One of the country's most scenic self-drives, the Panorama Route, explores the Mpumalanga highlands, or the north-eastern section of the Great Escarpment of the Drakensberg. In these rugged mountains the plateau comes to an abrupt and dramatic halt, falling steeply away into the Lowveld accompanied by incredible views out over the grasslands of Africa


Polokwane Meropa Casino

Set on the outskirts of Limpopo's capital Polokwane, the Meropa Casino & Entertainment World is the city's hedonistic pleasure dome. Have a flutter in the casino, enjoy a leisurely meal or cup of java, take the kids to the animal park, or dance the night away to live music.
