This little town is just 12 kilometres from the Phabeni Gate leading into the western part of Kruger National Park and serves as a prelude to Kruger. You can use this place as a quick pitstop before finally making it to the park. There are a million things you can do here but the one thing that will make your kids happiest is a visit to Elephant Whispers. Home to six rescued African elephants, here you get to witness their intelligence, compassionate nature and the sheer delight the elephants experience when interacting with humans. Interaction with the elephants offers you an opportunity to feel their constantly curious trunks, touch their rough skin, exchange trunk greetings and offer tasty treats, while learning about behaviour and history from the Elephant Handlers.
