Phalaborwa is one of the hottest cities in South Africa. It is also a popular gateway into the Kruger National Park.
The city with two summers
Known as the town with two summers ’cos it’s always stinking hot, the town is right on the border of the Kruger Park at the Phalaborwa Gate. Zebra crossings are used by hippos, giraffes wander across the golf course and a lion once ate a TV thief. Wild Africa. Copper has been mined here for over 1000 years and there is a ginormous open cast mine that has recently begun mining underground.
