and there is WAY too much to do here to be bored. Firstly we like to brag that we are essentially at the center of all the awesomeness in the World. The Kruger National Park is a stones throw away so go tantalise those safari taste buds with a day trip to Kruger spying lions and spotting ellies and all manner of amazing things. Secondly we are on the brink of the largest GREEN canyon in the world— the Blyde River canyon, so we have oodles of knowledge on tours, boat trips and rafting that can be done here. As well as that, we have animal rehabilitation centers, snake parks, and so so much more! And thats without mentioning our FAVOURITE bit– the community tours and experiences! After all the heart of Africa lies not only in the landscape and scenery, but in the people!!
We also are putting together bicycle tours, and donkey cart tours for those that wish to absorb the vibe at a different pace. Please contact us to custom make a tour or for more information.

Traditional Church Experience
During this unique tour you can join women from the local village when they go to church to hear the jubilant African music and see just how important the church is to the local people in their daily culture.
Part of the culture is when you go to church knees and shoulders must be covered and women must wear a head doek. We will provide a wrap skirt and head doek for the women. Men are able to wear normal trousers and a long sleeved shirt.
Unfortunately you will not be able to take any pictures during this tour as this is a religious ceremony.
