Quick Guide to Hazyview

Well located for South Africa’s Kruger Safari Park and home to some spectacular hiking trails, Hazyview’s a small farming village with a big heart.

Many coming on holiday to Hazyview, which takes its name from the haze the hoovers over the bush during the hot summer months, do so thanks to its close proximity to Kruger Safari Park where you can see the Big Five, but the village itself has plenty to offer too.

Surrounded by stunning scenery, there are hiking trails aplenty here and you could literally spend your whole holiday exploring the landscapes on foot. There’s also the Shangana Cultural Village where you can immerse yourself in the local culture and, just five kilometres up the road, you’ll find the Elephant Sanctuary, which provides temporary homes to young African elephants in need.

Outdoor activities are plentiful in Hazyview with absailing, river rafting and quad biking to enjoy as well as hot air balloon rides which offer some pretty spectacular views during your South Africa holiday.

Best Time to go to Hazyview

Hazyview is a year round destination, with each season bringing its own highlights. If you’re planning to head to Kruger, or any of the other safari parks in the area, game viewing’s at its best over the winter months. That said, if you book flights to South Africa during the wetter summer season, you’ll see full waterholes, lush greenery and have the chance of spotting newborn wildlife!
