Natural Wonders

Hanglip: Although the entire mountain area offers some stunning sights, one has to be given special recognition. Hanglip, at 1 719m above sea level, one of the highest points of the Soutpansberg Mountain Range, is a massive vertical cliff from which there are spectacular views of the mountains and valleys. Some people believe that the cliff was originally called Hangklip (“the rock that hangs”) but that a clerk who could not spell, incorrectly recorded it as Hanglip when the land was registered as a forestry reserve.

Other Attractions

Maclands Estate: Visit the Estate to see how macadamia nuts and a natural colourant are grown.

Mambedi River Tea Estates: These estates on the Elim/Levubu/Vuwani Road between Elim and Levubu can be visited by appointment.

Mara Agricultural Development Centre: The well-known - and truly South African - Bonsmara cattle were first bred at this centre. The centre lies 54 km west of Makhado.
