Welcome to Phalaborwa - the best kept secret in the Limpopo Province!
As the "town with two summers" our warm winters ensure
amazing tropical gardens and an abundance of bird life.
Getting to Phalaborwa is as easy as 1,2,3!
A one hour Airlink flight from Johannesburg International direct to our award-winning airport.
Two buses daily: either through Lydenburg and the picturesque Abel Erasmus Pass or via Polokwane and the breathtaking Magoebaskloof
Three well maintained roads via Lydenburg, Polokwane or the Kruger National Park lead you right to our warm, welcoming town
For the tourist Phalaborwa is centrally located and a comfortable day's drive from either the Panorama route in the South or Venda in the North.
Guests often use Phalaborwa as their central base from where they do day trips in all directions - from visiting the white lions at Hoedspruit or the Elephant Museum at Letaba Camp in the Kruger Park, to the tea plantations at Tzaneen.
On the South Phalaborwa is bordered by the Olifants River on which there are three river raft operators who are more than willing to let you experience game viewing with a difference.
There are also two Microlight operators who will gladly let you get a bird's eye view of the Kruger Park.
The town is less than 2km from the Phalaborwa Gate, central entrance gate to the world famous Kruger National Park and the gateway to the Transfrontier Park.
The best part of having the Kruger Park as a neighbour, is that we are the only town (in the world!) that can offer a night drive with or without a bush braai, day walk or full day safari from your doorstep!
Animals from the Park often visit our peaceful surrounds and joggers are warned to look out for predators rather than hi-jackers.
Wild Card holders have the added advantage of staying in a variety of comfortable accommodations in and around Phalaborwa with a choice of several restaurants, but still visit the Park as frequently as they wish without having to pay the daily conservation fees.
The informal accommodation sector in Phalaborwa started approximately 10 years ago with a couple of Bed and Breakfasts.
The industry has since grown by leaps and bounds and the Phalaborwa Accommodation Association presently has sixteen members, many of which are star-graded, covering the whole spectrum of available accommodations.
We strive to honour the friendliness and hospitality that the South African countryside is renowned for.
As this include a relaxed atmosphere and home-from-home comforts, many tourists don't realise that, even though we are in the country, we maintain the same high standards and business principals as any city hotel.
Come and enjoy our year-round sunshine and experience our warm hospitality first hand!
