The large ancient trees in this area are often almost 50% taller than most baobabs, and, scenically, the area is diverse: with stunning mountains, shady, deep gorges, forests of yellow-tinged fever trees, monolith baobabs, mopane woodland, and open savannah grassland.

The scenery ranges from Levuvhu River full with hippos and crocodiles, that is shaded by Nyala trees and fever tree forests, to the  Lanner Gorge,which is a  palm-fringed wetlands, with rocky outcrops that has thousand-year-old baobab trees.

A totally unique area to experience a South Africa Safari.
