El Roi Guest Lodge

El Roi's List of Must sees and Things to do:

Kruger Park - Numbi gate is our closest gate, but Phabeni, Paul Kruger and Malelane is also close to us

Lone Creek Falls - This waterfall is amazing, you are at the bottom of the falls, you can put your feet in the crisp cold water and feel the mist of the falls on you face!  You can take the most beautiful pictures here!

Horseshoe Falls - If you have time to add another waterfall, I would suggest Horse shoe falls. Also beautiful, the water comes down both sides of a giant rock, so the waterfall actually looks like a horse shoe! You can also take your swimsuit with if you are brave enough for the cold mountain water. It is just a short distance from Lone Creek Falls, after visiting Lone creek, on your way back, you turn right onto a dirt road - there is a sign, but it is quite faded. This waterfall is not on the Tourist Mpumalanga Map, which is maybe a good thing - as it is not as touristy and because of the short dirt road, it is not as busy as the other waterfalls.

God's Window - If the sky is clear!!  If it is cloudy or misty - do not bother as you will not see anything.

Graskop's glass lift - 51m down the face of the gorge and into the mist forest below. There is a beautiful 600m circular trail on a wooden pathway with suspension bridges through the forest and past a rockface waterfall.

Ziplining at Skyway Trails - Arial cable trail. For the adventurous ones!  This is awesome - the trail takes you down 1.2km into the valley basin, stopping along 9 elevated platforms.

Waterfall Abseil in Sabie - Great for Summer adventure!  I have done this and it was exhilarating! Descend down the 25m high Sabie Falls and finish in the rock pool below the falls! "Feel the Rush" guaranteed!

Swimming Pool is 19m x 9m and 20cm to 1.7m deep
