Natural and Cultural Features to visit;

The Letaba Elephant Museum - Letaba Northern Region of Kruger Park

Thulamela  - is a stone walled site is situated in the Far North region of the Park dating back to approximately 450 – 500 years before present (BP).

This late Iron Age site forms part of what is called the Zimbabwe culture which is believed to have started at Mapungubwe. Mapungubwe’s decline coincided with the increase of Great Zimbabwe’s importance. When Great Zimbabwe was abandoned about 300 years later, possibly due to political break down, several groups moved south across the Limpopo river into the North Eastern areas of South Africa (and Northern Kruger) and established new smaller chiefdoms such as Thulamela

Stevenson Hamilton Memorial Library

James Stevenson-Hamilton (October 2 1867 - December 10 1957) born in Scotland was the eldest of nine children. On July 1st 1902, he was appointed first Warden of the Sabi Game Reserve.

Explore the Jock of the Bushveld Route

Jock, the runt of the litter, grew into a great and fearless dog. He was well-liked, well-respected and well-behaved. He lived out his life at Percy’s Fitzpartick's side with unwavering loyalty and his loving memory inspired many a bedtime story to Percy’s three children. This route is in the Southern Region of Kruger Park









Masorini Ruins

This late Iron Age site can be found on a prominent hillside just 12 km from the Phalaborwa gate on the tar road to Letaba rest camp (39km from Letaba on the Phalaborwa road).

The site was inhabited by the Sotho speaking BaPhalaborwa during 1800’s, who developed an advanced and sophisticated industry of mining, smelting iron ore and trading in these iron products.


The remains of the 19th century trading post of the famous Portuguese trader, Joao Albasini is found at the new Phabeni Gate, 10 km from Hazyview.

Over the ages trading activity has taken place in the south-eastern region of Africa. Lourenco Marques, now known as Maputo (Mozambique) would have been the starting point (or end point) of many of the ancient trading routes that criss-crossed the countryside. When Albasini arrived in the, then Portuguese occupied, port in the early 1800’s, he began setting up his trading business. He set up a network of trading routes that reached the inland as far as the Lowveld and by 1845 he had established a trading post at Magashula’s Kraal (now known as Albasini Ruins). This trading post was conveniently positioned along two of these ancient trade routes.
