Royal Sheba Guesthouse
Description Barberton is set in very old country, and well worn to boot. The hills were scuffed threadbare by treasure hunters centuries ago. Even before the glint of gold there was the allure of red ochre, and almost every thing is prefaced by die phrase "the oldest". This is the Frontier of Time. Come and experience our tranquil homely atmosphere at Royal Sheba Guest House. We offer you a luxurious, peaceful and secure stay in the beautiful town of Barberton - the Gem of the Lowveld. With the tropical garden and quite surroundings Royal Sheba Guest House proves to be an ideal setting for relaxation. The blue sparkling pool in a tropical setting invites you to cool down in the summer heat. A Billiard table and bar is available for our guests only. 8 luxurious en-suite bedrooms, all with air-conditioning, television and hospitality trays. Beautifully decorated they make you feel at home. On request we will prepare a BBQ for you. Listen to the birds, have a drink and enjoy your meal. Barberton is a by-product of the hills, a relic of fleeting gold fever. Once the "Gem of the Lowveld" the town now rests in the supporting arms of the beautiful Makonjwa mountains. There are Heritage Walk signposts around town and a number of hiking trails in the hills behind. A slow stroll from town centre will take you into a gentle wooded ravine where you can see Purple Crested and Knysna Turaco, and Narina Trogon. Another walk includes a kilometre long tunnel used in the old days to move ore from a mine to a long vanished crusher. This is a destination you can make your own. Relax in the gentle serenity of the area, or thrill to the wild exuberance of the pioneering spirit as you explore on foot, by mountain -bike or 4x4. Experience the wonder of this most ancient geology and its associated botanical richness, or play a gentle round of golf or game of bowls in die velvet air. Within a twelve kilometre radius of the town you can reach half a dozen nature and wildlife reserves; inside an hour, through Malelane, you can be in the Kruger National Park. In two hours by road you can reach either Maputo or Mbabane, the capital of neighbouring Mozambique and Swaziland. Location/Address/Phone No./Fax No.

Kruger Park - Biyamiti ( Website)
On the banks of the Mbiyamiti river, hidden by Delagoa thickets, nestles one of the most beautiful bushveld camps in the Kruger National Park. The camp is ideally situated between huge Wild Fig and Jackalberry trees with vast numbers of other fauna and flora species in abundance. The area is a game spotter's dream come true.
