HHazyview and its surrounds offer some of the most comprehensive line-ups of adventure activities in one South African destination. Zip slides, big swings and bridge jumps will set your heart racing while quad biking and river rafting will allow you to explore every nook and cranny of this picturesque region.

Hazyview lies in the north-eastern corner of Mpumalanga. The Sabie River dominates the area, including the neighbouring towns of Sabie and Graskop, where rolling green hills, beautiful forests, waterfalls and deep gorges abound.

The Skyway Trail, Africa's longest aerial cable trail, is a major Hazyview attraction. It takes you 1.2km down into the Sabie River valley basin, through spectacular indigenous forests, past streams and among abundant birdlife and wildlife. The cable is linked by 10 platforms, which afford you ample opportunity to take in the sheer beauty of the surrounds.

Did You Know?
HHazyview is so named for the haze that settles over the area in summer.

YYou can continue your aerial adventures at Sabie, with a 30m swing off the Sabie Falls Bridge into the valley below, and at Graskop, where the famous big swing sees you free-falling 68m into the gorge before the swing ropes kick in.

FFor a calmer ride, try the Graskop zip slide. At 131m long and 80m above the ground, it provides awesome views of the Graskop Falls and gorge. A 60m abseil is also available here.

The Sabie River valley and the surrounding forests offer numerous hiking and bird-watching trails. Quad biking is another popular visitor activity, and specialised quad biking tracks have also been established. One-hour, half-day and overnight quad trails are available, with the latter taking in the Mac Mac Falls, and providing accommodation in rustic log cabins.

The Sabie River at Hazyview is also a great river-rafting spot, with lots of flat water and a couple of grade two and three rapids to get your adrenaline pumping. Geckoing (or tubing) is oodles of fun too and takes advantage of the smaller grade one rapids.

SSome river trips also feature kloofing (or canyoning), which involves exploring the canyons on foot and then hiking back out again. Rock jumping eight meters down into the river is a sweet reward after all the hard slog.
