Bela Bela is just over a 140 kms drive from Johannesburg and the OR Tambo International Airport on the R21 highway which it seems are under constant construction. It is situated in the Limpopo Province formerly Northen Province.
The name Bela Bela means Boiling Boiling), and it refers to the natural hot springs in town. This spring water, which rises to the surface at a temperature of 50 degrees centigrade, is rich in minerals, attracting thousands of visitors who come to the town to enjoy the healing qualities of the waters for which the local resort is famous.
There are many game farms offer a wide range of activities from night drives, game walks and hiking trails in the area. I stayed at Mabalingwe which is approx 30 kms outside of town.
