Drought in the Kruger: 7 good reasons to visit now

Masorini - a trip back in time

Trip back in time to a beautifully restored Stone Age village in the Kruger National Park.

Situated on top of the picturesque Masorini Hill 11km from Phalaborwa Gate (and the Bushveld Terrace Hotel) on the road to Letaba camp, Masorini offers a glimpse of an organised economy that existed before the arrival of European settlers in South Africa.
