Baleni is an environment where nature, economy and spiritualism have a rich integration. With an economy strongly dependent on traditional salt-mining, visiting Baleni allows the responsible traveller the opportunity to see how modern people integrate ancient traditions and techniques into their 21st century lives.
The area around Baleni provides an outdoor playground for hikers, trail runners and mountain bikers. Single-tracks created by cattle meander through the mopani scrub, allowing you an endless variety of loops. Bird watchers will be delighted with the variety of birdlife, especially along the Klein Letaba River. This is a ‘get outdoors’ venue where the whole family can keep active.
During the winter months guests can watch local ladies harvesting salt from the crystals that are deposited from the geothermal spring. This is an ancient skill and of important economic value to the people of the area.
