I Love Komatipoort Because …

Send to Kindle
I ♥ Komatipoort

I ♥ Komatipoort

Hi, I’m Suefrom Trees Too Guest Lodge in Komatipoort, Mpumalanga.

Komatipoort IS BEST KNOWN FOR the Crocodile Bridge Gate into the Kruger, being next to the Mozambique and Swaziland borders and for prawns!

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT the Kruger National Park with an obliging elephant or lion as your backdrop … subject to availability!

THE BEST wildlife PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT the section of the Kruger between Crocodile Bridge and Lower Sabie.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT the stunning Samora Machel monument or from a micro light flight up the Crocodile River.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO visit the Kruger Park.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO … visit the Kruger Park! Remember a bad day in the bush beats a good day in the office!

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS March to October, BECAUSE its not too hot and the game viewing is stunning … although again there is no bad time to visit Komatipoort and the Kruger Park.

MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS … there are a couple of restaurants in town and many lodges serve breakfast, lunch ad evening meals too.

MY FAVOURITE lunch time viewing SPOT IS the Komatipoort Golf Club with an amazing view onto the Kruger Park.

IF YOU WANT TO MEET LOCALS, GO TO the Komatipoort Prawn Festival from 22 to 25 June.

Komatipoort’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS the long list of available activities … game drives, golf, fishing, micro light, horse and elephant back safaris, quad biking and more.


FOR SOME CULTURE I LIKE TO GO watch the internationally famous African Childrens Choir who have a base in Komatipoort.

TO RELAX AND RESTORE MY SOUL, I LIKE TO visit the Kruger Park … its obvious!

IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY an elephant back or microlight safari.

MY FAVOURITE WALK or DRIVE IS a morning bush walk or full day game drive in the Kruger.

IF YOU’RE HERE IN June, JOIN IN THE FUN AT The Komatipoort Prawn Festival.

MY FAVOURITE BUILDING IS the Samora Machel Monument, FOR ITS incredible atmosphere and stunning views.

TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN? A FUN OUTING IS the Kruger Park with a swim in the public pool at Skukuza.

BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS the Kruger Park or free game viewing from the Komatipoort Golf Club.

WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO cross the border and take the one hour drive to Maputo for a stunning seafood meal.

MY FAVOURITE WEEKEND GETAWAY IS a drive through the Kruger Park and a night’s stay at the Rissington Inn in Hazyview.

WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I ask the African Children’s choir to perform at my lodge for guests who make donations. We also buy all our hotel soap from a local community project that will soon be producing other lotions and potions too!

I Love Komatipoort Because it is a small, quiet, traditional town with tree lined streets and a real sense of community. We are busy with a number of tourism projects which will assist in the upliftment of previously disadvantaged people. Also, my own lodge has had more than 80 nationalities to stay…the whole world comes to Komatipoort, so should you!
