Focus on Tzaneen, Limpopo, South Africa

The Valley of the Olifants is one of the last unspoilt corners of Africa - unhurried, contented and timeless.
Here the sights and sounds, the smells and tastes, the very touch of history and heritage fill up the senses of those who seek the spirit of an age gone by.

Discover the full splendour of Africa's wildlife within the northern reaches of the Kruger National Park and in the wealth of conservation areas along its borders.
Watch the herds move majestically across the sunlit plains of endless summer. Hear the call of the loerie, the jackal, the hyena and the lion. Shiver at the strident trumpeting of elephants as they march, dignified and free, into a crimson sunset.

Witness the glory of spring with its profusion of azaleas and flowering cherries. Feel the cool green shade of indigenous forests with towering yellowwoods, tree ferns, lichens and lianas. Linger in the land of the silver mist and smell the comforting warmth of a crackling log fire in winter.

For a short while step out of the fast lane and lose yourself in the peace and serenity of the mountain and bushveld world of the Valley. Share a magnificent golf course with hippo, waterbuck and warthog.

Hike, fish or dream the warm days away. Eat, sleep and make merry at luxurious country hotels, or cook a hearty country breakfast in a simple rustic chalet. Be thoroughly spoiled in the splendid comfort of a safari lodge, or get to know your family again in a tent on the banks of a lazy lowveld river.

In all its natural beauty and simplicity, the Valley of the Olifants is waiting to welcome you!
