    God's Window, 3 rondavels, mac mac falls, and if you hang around Sabi/Graskop area, there is a whole bunch of very nice waterfalls around. Oh ja & Kruger is just up the road from Hazeview.

    Golfstok - much to do in Hazyview (even rhymes ).

    Perry's bridge - micro brewed ales & lagers, Belgian coffee shop & patisserie

    Sabie Valley Coffees - home grown coffees & restaurant, across the road is the "Adventure Centre" - quad bikes, river rafting etc.

    Before stuffing yourself hit the many gravel roads in the forestry areas around White River/Sabie/Hazyview.

    Also head up to Hoedspruit where there are a few cheetah conservation places.

    Kruger - 3 gates to choose from Skukuza 45km, Phabeni 12km, Numbi 19km.

    2 golf courses in town, plus at least 3 more within 45km.

    You won't be bored

    Cheers

    The Castle in Graskop is really awesome inside. You must try to get an appointment to see it.

    To get out & enjoy your Jimney you must have a look at the Mac Mac 4x4 Routes

    http://www.macmac.co.za/adventure_zone.htm

    Very light offroad routes but with great views & travel roads not open to the public.

    A must do for sure.

    Enjoy the area, really stunning...........but plse be carefull, this area has been hammered with the likes of robberies, armed attackes etc ( Hazyview ) for quite a while now. Apparently its better now......but you never know

    Not recommended. Forestry guys are clamping down on guys driving their roads without permits, confiscating vehicles.
    They had major losses in the past year, it’s understandable that they’re that strict. Make the necessary arrangements before taking on any forestry routes.
    If you want to drive in the Sabie area, you can inquire about permits at the Sabie museum.

    It depends where you want to go, do you want to stay in that area or head towards other areas ? What is your time-frame or planed route ?

    Other areas could be heading off to Lydenburg or Dullstroom, also lots of sight seeing in those areas. Barberton, Kaapsehoop perhaps ?

    Then I would recommend Kaapsehoop, there is a nice dirt road from Barberton to Kaapsehoop and it isnt far from Barberton or Nelspruit. Kaapsehoop has nice walking trails and things to do, eat drink & be merry. A friend of mine owns Mountain Haven Guest House

    Worth a look.
