The Tsonga Kraal Open-Air Museum in Hans Merensky Nature Reserve

The Tsonga Kraal Open-Air Museum is a full-sized model of a Tsonga village, depicting the homestead of a real Tsonga chief — Muti Va Mutsonga — his eight wives, and his children. This homestead still existed as late as the1970s near the town of Giyani. Touring the homestead provides visitors with an idea of what traditional Tsonga culture and daily life would have been like a century ago.

Nylsvley Nature Reserve: A Birdwatcher’s Paradise

At first glance the Nylsvley Nature Reserve seems modest. It’s a small, provincial reserve — without the Big-5 flashiness of the massive Kruger Park to east, or the plush luxury of the private lodges in the Waterberg to the west. And yet Nylsvley possesses a sense of peace and quiet unlike anywhere else in South Africa. On top of that, it’s a paradise for birdwatchers and nature-lovers more generally.
