Tzaneen is in heart a farming community which has the added advantage of being located in some of South Africa’s most attractive and scenic nature.
The town of Tzaneen is surrounded by plantations of litchis, mangoes, bananas and all the citrus fruits South Africa and other parts of the world consume.
The town is set in the Wolkberg region which is part of the Drakensburg Mountains and at the spectacular Tzaneen dam and surrounded by towns like Haenertsburg, Magoebaskloof and Duiwelskloof paints the perfect picture.
The town is small and has a CBD area with shops and convenience stores catering for the reasonably large community and townships in the region.
Architecture in the town is of the more conventional type with a few modern homes which are all displayed by very attractive gardens.
The secondary source of income to the region is tourism which sustains the many small cultural villages with their arts and crafts and also the many guest houses and B ed and Breakfasts in the town, as well as on private game farms in and around the town.
Property values are driven in part by farm prices and also the location. The town and its suburbs are an ideal retirement option as the town is quiet and well established with very little pollution.
Tourist attractions in and close to Tzaneen are Ebenezer Dam, Hans Merensky Nature Reserve, Makalali Nature Reserve and Klaserie Game Reserve.
Tzaneen is synonymous with “The Rain Queen”, Modjadji the Rain Goddess, which is said to bring rain when the local village people pray.
Towns around Tzaneen which add to the attraction of the region are Magoebaskloof and Duiwelskloof.
The town is favoured by people seeking the serenity and a country style of living.
