Is a pool and a play area a requirement or do you just prefer a warm, safe place to sleep so that you can be fresh and ready to explore the local attractions the next day? We found the best of both worlds at Aan de Vliet in Mpumalanga.

Aan de Vliet, Mpumalanga

It’s located just 8 kilometers from Hazyview and 20 kilometers away from the Kruger National Park’s Paul Kruger gate. We found that we could easily drive to Mac Mac Falls in just over 30 minutes, while God’s Window was under at hour away. Blyde River Canyon is about 90 minutes away but Kruger is literally just down the road.

Mpumalanga is flippen gorgeous! I have NO idea. It is green and lush and so quiet. There are a wealth of touristy things to do but if you just want to relax by the pool, you can do that too. If you’re more of a 5000 star hotel kind of person and prefer camping, you’ll be pleased to know that self catering rondawels aren’t your only option. Just before we left, a group of campers arrived and they set themselves up in a camping circle. They were kitted out with camping lights, chairs, tables, tents and caravans. It is clearly a very popular spot and it was easy to see why.

About TazzDiscovers 126 Articles
Hi! Welcome to our family travel blog. The TAZZ in TazzDiscovers doesn't imply we drive a Toyota Tazz. TAZZ stands for Tami, Anton, Zac and Zoe. We hope you enjoy the content we share here. We tried the nomad life in 2016 and, while we loved exploring 7 of the 9 regions in South Africa, we found it tough. We are back in Cape Town and enjoy going on mini adventures as a family. Our kids are 11 and 14 years old, and they love the outdoors. Anton is a stay at home dad and helps me to home school the kids, while I hold down a job and find time to write. One day when the kids are older and have settled into their own lives, we plan to explore the rest of South Africa in a 4x4, so that we can also visit Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia. Contact us for unique, family-friendly content about Cape Town, most of South Africa and what we have learned from our travels so far. You are most welcome to check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@tazzdiscovers) to see what we share on a day to day basis. We look forward to working with you.
