Samora Machel Monument and Museum

Samora Machel Monument marks the spot where the plane carrying the then-President of Mozambique crashed in 1986. It resulted in the deaths of President Machel and several Mozambican ministers. It was declared a National Heritage Site in 2006.

The monument was inaugurated by Joaquim Chissano and Nelson Mandela on 19 January 1999. It was constructed at a cost of $240,000 and incorporates some of the wreckage of the plane. Its central feature is 35 tubes of steel, symbolising the number of lives lost in the air crash that create a wailing sound in the wind.

Mjejane Game Reserve

Mjejane Game Reserve lies on the banks of the Crocodile River on the southern end of the famous Kruger National Park, its borders with the park no longer hindered by fences, allowing the free range of game to and fro.

Mjejane is 4000 hectares that connects via a low-water bridge to the road network of the Kruger National Park. Some of its land is being developed and the reserve is a joint venture between the local community and big business.

This part of the Kruger Park is said to be of the best for game viewing and since it is so very accessible – only 4 hours’ drive from Gauteng, just past the town of Hectorspruit – a wonderful space to which to escape on a regular basis.
