About

Loerie’s Call is the sister guest house to the impeccable Francolin Lodge and the same exquisite attention to detail that is apparent in the latter is also abundantly evident at the owner-managed Loerie’s Call.

The guest house is surrounded by landscaped gardens filled with indigenous Lowveld trees and offers the best views of Nelspruit, which can be enjoyed from the balconies of the rooms.

In slight contrast to the luxury apartment-style rooms of Francolin Lodge, each of Loerie’s Call’s suites has its own distinct character, with common threads being the tiles and mottled wooden floors, vibrant splashes of colour and plush textures.

Colour schemes vary from sunset reds to cooling greens and blues, sparkling silvers and subdued creams, while high-quality modern furnishings add opulence and class. Interesting contemporary art plays a big role in creating each room’s individual atmosphere.

The two standard rooms are airy, cosy loft-style rooms, one with a King-size bed and a modern colonial atmosphere and the other with twin beds and playful splashes of pink and red. The en-suite high-pressure showers are perfect for washing off the sweat after a day of adventure in the Lowveld.

En-suite cascade showers in the spacious luxury rooms are equally effective and guests will sleep comfortably in stylish Queen-size beds.

The executive suites are expansive havens of opulent elegance, treating guests to King-size beds and full en-suite bathrooms with over-sized baths, where you can have a luxuriant bubble and crystal-infused bath. Each of the rooms has a balcony or patio overlooking the town and its lush subtropical vegetation, and onwards to the blue mountains in the distance. Conveniences include wireless internet, multinational plug sockets, satellite television, hair dryers, air-conditioning and bathrobes.

As you walk around the property, you make your way through lush gardens dotted with bird feeders that attract Lowveld specials such as purple-crested turacos and grey go-away-birds.

The pool area and outdoor lounge are idyllic places to unwind with a drink, kindly brought straight to you from the bar, and the lapa-  open 24 hours a day - is stocked with plenty of fluffy swimming towels and loungers.

The on-site Orange Restaurant is well known as one of the classiest restaurants in town. A filling breakfast is served here in the mornings and is best enjoyed on the pool deck overlooking the city. At night, the lights of Nelspruit are a gorgeous accompaniment to an equally sparkling gourmet meal.

In addition to local attractions such as the botanical garden, golf course and shopping malls, Loerie’s Call is in close proximity to attractions such as the Kruger National Park, Sudwala Caves and the Panorama Route, and is an ideal stop-over point for people travelling to and from Mozambique.

Panorama & Lowveld

Mpumalanga

About

The Lowveld-Legogote region is the urban hub of Mpumalanga. It is home to the dynamic capital city Mbombela/Nelspruit and KaNyamazane township. It also contains the towns of White River and Hazyview, known for their arts & crafts, their good living and bonhomie.

All roads round here lead to the Kruger National Park (KNP) which is the region’s border and its biggest attraction. Another big attraction is the amazing Sudwala caves - the world’s oldest dolomite caves and the geological highlight of the Lowveld.

To the west of Mbombela/Nelspruit is the Blyde (Motlatse) River Canyon, the third-largest green canyon in the world and highlight of the Panorama Route. This is a scenic route along the escarpment edge, taking in the mountain towns of Graskop, Sabie, Pilgrim’s Rest and Lydenburg. To the east of Mbombela/Nelspruit lies the region dubbed the Wild Frontier. It is known for its lively gold rush history and mysterious stone ruins left by early indigenous people.

The Lowveld-Legogote region has strong ties with neighbouring Mozambique and Swaziland, offering an intriguing mix of culture, language and style. 

The Lowveld is sometimes referred to as the ‘Slowveld’ –and it’s not hard to see why. It’s hot, subtropical, laid-back and friendly. This is a region that has always worked alongside the rhythms of the wild.

The word ‘legogote’ means ‘place of the skins’ and refers to the leather makers who once lived here in the Legogote Mountains. They were known for their skill in crafting leather thongs supplied to early ox-wagon travellers.

The Lowveld has long been a trade route and trading post. Explored by early hunters and pioneers, it developed on the back of the discovery of gold. From old Delagoa Bay (present-day Maputo) to Mbombela/Nelspruit and on to the Panorama Route, you will encounter colourful tales of early adventurers, prospectors, bootleggers, gamblers, traders, chiefs, kings and shysters.

Mbombela/Nelspruit is a big, busy city that includes historic Nelspruit, ever-growing residential developments, and the vibrant, sprawling township of Kanyamazane. Cutting right through the centre of the city is the Lowveld Botanical Garden. Popular among residents and tourists, the garden is set on the banks of the Nels River and is a delight of indigenous greenery. It has a large cycad collection and an African rainforest.

Mbombela/Nelspruit was a host city for the 2010 FIFA World CupTM. Its beautiful stadium is an icon of the city’s progress - along with the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, with an innovative design reflecting a modern African spirit. In Mbombela/Nelspruit you’ll find excellent hotels, restaurants and shopping malls. It is home to a mix of peoples and cultures, with an Afro-chic flavour. From Mbombela/Nelspruit you can do artists’ routes and township tours, visit casinos, nightclubs, and artistic and historical spots. And yet within a short time you can be right in the middle of the KNP gazing out onto the ancient African wilderness.

Incredible mountain scenery and excellent outdoor action - that’s the spirit of Mpumalanga’s Panorama Route. From Mbombela/Nelspruit the route heads east through subtropical foothills and farmlands, into the mountains of the Blyde (Motlatse) River Canyon. The route takes you along a series of historic mountain passes to the towns of Pilgrim’s Rest, Sabie, Graskop, Mashishing/Lydenburg and Orighstad. Scenic highlights include God’s Window, the Three Rondavels and the Bourke’s Luck Potholes. The Blyde River Canyon Reserve is also there - home to plenty of wildlife and birdlife and some of the best views in South Africa.

Pilgrim’s Rest is where gold was first discovered and is a heritage town. Graskop and Sabie are timber centres, and renowned for their adventure activities. There is a wide choice of things to do here, from gorge swinging, rock climbing, abseiling, and hot air ballooning, to river rafting, bungee jumping, quad biking, fishing, sailing and 4x4-ing.

Look out for

The Kruger National Park - Flagship of Mpumalanga, the Kruger National Park has good infrastructure and services, with routes, game drives, guides, camps, watering holes and other animal viewing spots. Your chances of a lion sighting are the highest in the central Kruger Park, where nutritious grasslands support a diversity of creatures. There are great spots for humans too, from luxury lodges to remote camping hideouts.

Mbombela/Nelspruit - Mpumalanga’s capital city is a friendly and fast-moving mix of cultures. These include Tsonga, Pedi, Swazi, Mozambican, Afrikaans, English, Dutch, German and French. The city is a central place from which to access the Lowveld and Panorama regions. You can take a cultural tour of Kanyamazane township, and visit arts & craft centres, traditional healers and shebeens. You can see an excellent collection of South African art at the Mpumalanga Provincial Legislature buildings, or spend a quiet hour or two in the Lowveld Botanical Garden in the heart of the city.

Sudwala caves - The world’s oldest known cave system, said to be nearly 3 billion years old, the Sudwala Caves are completely surreal. In the heart of the Mankelekele mountains lies this vast subterranean city of passages, tunnels, caverns and chambers. There are timeless dripstone formations and eerie bottomless lakes. The highlight is the Crystal Tour – a five-hour 2km hike into the heart of the caves culminating in a cavern containing incredible stalactites and stalagmites.

Outdoor action - Sabie is the adventure capital of the Lowveld and Panorama, offering just about everything you can think of in an incredible canyon and mountain setting. Experience the adrenalin rush of the world's highest cable gorge swing with a 68m (18-storey) freefall. You’ll go from 0-160km/h in 2.3 seconds! The hiking is exceptional, and there are excellent rock climbing, paragliding, and abseiling opportunities.

The Artists Route - The beautiful setting and laidback lifestyle of the Lowveld has long attracted artists and creative souls. In the White River/Hazyview area you can visit the studios and showrooms of some of the country’s foremost artists. These include potters, weavers, candle makers, glass-blowers, sculptors and even taxidermists. Both these towns are hip and happening, offering charming eating spots and great rural retail therapy. For good shopping head for Casterbridge Centre on the edge of White River, and Perry’s Bridge in Hazyview.

Kaapsehoop village - Explore the misty heights of this historic gold mining village. It is popular for its quaint coffee shops, pubs, bistros and more than a hundred wild horses.

Innibos Cultural Festival - A music and arts festival held in the Nelspruit/White River area in June and July. This is a cultural ‘must-do’. For 14 days the Lowveld rocks. This arts festival is held at over 60 theatre and music spots across the province and features everything from big stage concerts to assorted theatre and cultural activities. There are also more than 400 craft stalls to explore.
