The area around Baleni provides an outdoor playground for hikers, trail runners and mountain bikers. Single-tracks created by cattle meander through the mopani scrub, allowing you an endless variety of loops. Bird watchers will be delighted with the variety of birdlife, especially along the Klein Letaba River. This is a ‘get outdoors’ venue where the whole family can keep active.
