10 Reasons to visit Sand River Resort

In the land of the baobab lies a resort touched by the famous sand river that's located in the northernmost section of the country, called Musina!

1. The famous Sand River!

This is when the river has experienced a good rainy season.

Our resort is located within a hot and dry part of the world where low shrubs and thorn trees dominate the landscape, and the historical Limpopo River, also known as Sand River, flows through our resort with water along its river banks on average only once in seven years. And there is evidence of the rock formation known as Sand River gneiss – said to be the oldest datable rock in the world and almost 4 000 million years old. It is protected within the reserve.

2. The Baobab Tree...

As you drive through the N1, one of the things you'll notice is our huge Baobab tree.

The giant baobab trees grow mainly in the hot, semi-arid areas north of the mountain which is part of what makes staying with us so spectacular. This tree is set apart for so many travelers because it appears to be upside-down in the ground – with its roots reaching toward the heavens. The lifespan of the baobab tree is impressive and there are specimens in Limpopo as old as 3 000 years. Even our average baobab, flanking the side of the road to greet visitors to South Africa, is around or over 350 years old.

Legend has it that in a frivolous mood, the gods planted Baobabs upside down with their roots exposed to the sky.

3. Variety of Wildlife

But the reserve is not about our historic baobab tree alone. It is also home to cute notorious creatures known as monkeys who are weirdly well-behaved and shy to humans in our resort. Within a land you'll find antelopes, and bushpigs and might see some kudus if you're lucky though we do not offer any game drives, we are known to let animals freely live uninterrupted within our lands.

4. Water, 5, yes Five Swimming Pools!!
