This Wilderness Trail is situated between Punda Maria Camp and Pafuri, with the spectacular Lanner and Levhuvhu Gorges along the Levhuvhu River a big attraction. The trails camp is hidden in a secluded spot on the Madzaringwe River, with the towering cliffs of the Soutpansberg Mountains in the background. The area is one of the best in the country for bird watching, and various localised species, such as Verreauxs’ eagle, Pel’s fishing owl, grey-headed parrot, mottled spinetail, can be seen. The Nyalaland Trail is set in an area which is botanically rich with the popular draw card to this spectacular wilderness area being the giant baobab trees. There is a large concentration of large game such as elephant, buffalo, lion, and rhino which can be seen mostly in the wet season. Other species you may also come across include nyala, grysbok, eland and roan antelope. Important cultural sites in the Kruger National Park occur only on the Nyalaland trail, representing Zimbabwe stone culture and San rock art. A highlight are some dinosaur fossils that only guests who visit the Nyalaland trail will have the privilege of seeing. The Levhuvhu River is used by guests to cool down when it is hot. Walks to the Lanner and Levhuvhu Gorges are also part of the itinerary. The Nyalaland Trail one of the most spectacular trails within the Kruger National Park.
