Phalaborwa (translated to English as better than the south; phala means better than and borwa means south) is a town in the Mopani District MunicipalityLimpopo province, South Africa. It is located near the confluence of the Ga-Selati River and the Olifants, halfway up along the western border of the Kruger National Park in the Lowveld.


The name "Ba-Phalaborwa", given to the area by the Sotho tribes who moved here from the south, means "better than the south". The Sotho mined and smelted copper and iron ore here as far back as 400 AD. Masorini, near Phalaborwa gate, is a reconstructed Ba-Phalaborwa hill village, with huts, grain storage areas, and an iron-smelting site.


Phalaborwa began as a mining town and still is home to Palabora Mining. The massive open-pit mine, nearly 2,000 metres across, is Africa's widest manmade hole.


Tourism and wildlife play a dominant role in the life of this town. It is the only town in South Africa that borders the Kruger National Park, the Mozambiquan border is only two hours drive away. Lately, with the incorporation of various private game reserves into the conservancy area, Phalaborwa is all but enclaved by nature conservancies. The Hans Merensky Golf Estate is situated on the outskirts of the town.

Nearby natural attractions are Blyde River Canyonthe Three RondavelsGod's Window and Bourke's Luck Potholes; the Tzaneen fruit farms and Hoedspruit game farms can all be visited within a day.



Phalaborwa Airport is a commercial airport serving the town.
