Phalaborwa is well known as a mining district with the largest man made hole on earth which can be seen from outer space and it also borders the Kruger National Park which makes it a perfect holiday destination with wilderness, bushveld, astronomy and history all on its doorstep.
Phalaborwa offers one of the most interesting and breathtaking astronomy tours where you can experience the African night sky through modern computerised telescopes. The moon, planets and many constellations are spectacular and this experience is a must while visiting Phalaborwa. You don't even have to be a golfer to appreciate this magnificent golfing experience at the Hans Merensky Golf Course which has been home to many championships. Here you will be accompanied by giraffe, hippo, crocodile and much more that nature has to offer while enjoying 18 holes. Also the Hans Merensky Nature Reserve which lies on the banks of the Great Letaba River is a beautiful reserve where you can relax in natures beauty or enjoy the hiking trails or game viewing drives.
