Deriving its name from the haze that covers the lowveld in summer, Hazyview is a wonderfully quaint farming town. Known as the gateway to the Kruger Park, the town is just 10 kilometres from the closest gate to the park. Most of the private game reserves in Mpumalanga lie to the east of this town, and can be reached with a short drive.

This small town is renowned for its banana farms which enjoy one of the best climates for banana farming in the world. The great climate in the area also helps the lush vegetation growing on the rolling lowveld hills. A great way to enjoy the beauty around Hazyview is to take a hot air balloon flight, or go hiking into the hills.

Hazyview is filled with many delightful restaurants, pubs and guesthouses. The small town feel allows visitors a perfect break from city life, and with the town's centrality, Hazyview provides the perfect base from which to go exploring in this nature lover's paradise.
