I Love Malelane Because …

Send to Kindle
I ♥ Malelane

I ♥ Malelane

Hi, I’m Peter Jaehne from Khandizwe River Lodge in Malelane.

Malelane IS BEST KNOWN FOR its lush, tropical surroundings and proximity to the Kruger National Park.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT the Malelane Bridge with hippos frolicking below you in river.

THE BEST Kruger Park PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT the Malelane Gate,the entrance gate to the Kruger National Park.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO relax in my swimming pool watching the elephants below the Lodge.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO watch National Geographic movies about Africa and its beautiful wildlife.

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS all year around BECAUSE the colours of the bush and its flora and fauna changes all the time.

MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS Afsaal, located inside Kruger between the Malelane Gate and Skukuza. Try the pancakes!

MY FAVOURITE lunch SPOT IS the new diner in town.

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS Hamilton’s. Originally an old trading store, the walls are stone clad and the green lawn lends itself as the perfect playground for children.

BEST LATE NIGHT SNACK FROM Nandos at the entrance to the town.

FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY the BBQ Sundowner Safari offered by the South African National Parks.

IF YOU WANT TO MEET LOCALS, GO TO the Duck ‘n Dive pub.

Malelane’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS its direct proximity to Kruger and its great all-year climate.

MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO WITH FRIENDS IS head into the Kruger Park before the sun rises.

TO RELAX AND RESTORE MY SOUL, I LIKE TO watch the elephants playing on the banks of the Crocodile River between Malelane and Kruger.

IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY micro-lighting above the Crocodile River.

MY FAVOURITE DRIVE IS from the Malelane Gate to the beautiful Lower Sabie Camp.

MY FAVOURITE food SHOP IS the extremely well-stocked SuperSpar in Malelane.

MY FAVOURITE GAME AND BIRD WATCHING SPOT IS on the Malelane Bridge outside the Malelane Gate.

IF YOU’RE HERE IN May, JOIN IN THE FUN AT the annual Portuguese Festival.

BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS a drive to the Malelane Bridge leading into Kruger – fantastic game viewing for free.

WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO spend most of my time inside Kruger and its many great rest camps.

MY FAVOURITE WEEKEND GETAWAY IS a stay at the Lower Sabie Rest Camp inside Kruger.

WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, we make our Lodge available to local teenagers in the area who otherwise are unable to appreciate the bush in a luxurious environment.

I Love Malelane BECAUSE people make time for one another.
