We’ll be happy to book excursions and adventure trips for you during your stay. We have years of expertise behind us and have forged great relationships with a host of local operators. We’ve been able to negotiate the best possible prices and can pass the savings on to you. We want you to get the most from your visit so let us help you plan your trip.
Kruger National Park
We’re able to offer tailor-made excursions to this vast protected area. Taking a tour with an experienced guide will help you get the best glimpse of what life is like for the animals you’ll see on your safari. Seeing the lions, elephants, giraffes and rhinos which roam the Kruger in their natural habitat is an exhilarating, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Not to be missed!
Endangered Wildlife tours, Sunset Safaris, and Boat Trips
You’re visiting a region that’s teaming with wildlife. We’re able to offer specialist tours where you’ll see some of the area’s endangered wildlife such as cheetahs, African wild dogs and Sable antelope. We also have sunset safaris available. A boat trip on the Blyde dam will take you to spectacular waterfalls and the third largest canyon on earth. It’s home to hippos, crocodiles and antelope.
Helicopter and Microlight Flights
One advantage of staying at the Hotel Numbi is that we have our own airstrip! There really is no better way to take in the wonderful surrounding area than seeing it from above. Let us take you above Pinnacle Rock, God’s Window and the Sabie Valley for a breath-taking trip over some of the most beautiful scenery on earth.
Graskop Gorge Lift
This is a new and superbly designed attraction. The views from above of the gorge are stunning. Now, thanks to an amazing feat of engineering, you can take a viewing lift fifty-one metres down to the forest below. Wooden walkways and suspension bridges weave their way along a 600 metre trail. There are interactive exhibits along the way. For those who want some real action, it’s possible to bungee-jump from the opposite side of the gorge. Not for the faint-hearted!
Get up Close to the Elephants
There are several sanctuaries close by where you can spend time getting to know Africa’s largest mammals. These huge animals can spend up to 18 hours a day feeding. During that time, they can get through up to 250 kilos of food and almost 200 litres of water. You’ll be able to interact with the elephants and have the option take a ride on one as well.
An exhilarating aerial cable trail will have you gliding over one of the last remaining forested areas along the Sabie River. You’ll be able to stop off along the way on elevated platforms from where you’ll be able to admire the wildlife and views of the forest floor below. The length of the trail is just over a kilometre and is linked by ten look-out platforms.
The Crocodile Sanctuary
Take a snappy 90 minute tour and see thousands of crocodiles on a specially designed farm, full of beautiful trees and wildlife. The sanctuary has helped lower the risk of the Nile crocodile becoming an endangered species. The sanctuary is home to a very rare albino crocodile. It’s kept safe on the farm from predators in the wild.
River Rafting, Quad Biking, Horse-Riding
Fancy a ride through the rapids of the Sabie River gorge on a water tube? How about trying a quad bike trail? Or, take a mountain horse trek with a delicious picnic to enjoy along the way. Whatever adventure takes your fancy, we are there to organise it for you.

Wagon Wheel Saloon
This is the newest addition to the Numbi Hotel family of restaurants. A short stroll away, it offers a bistro-style evening service at our recently opened Little Pilgrims Boutique Hotel.
The menu which changes daily offers a mouth-watering selection of homemade starters, mains and delicious desserts to tempt you. There’s an outdoor deck too if you want to eat out under the stars
Will’s Pool Bar is a few steps away. It has a circular, bandstand-style shape and opens on to one of our three lovely swimming pools. It's the perfect spot to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail or late night digestif. The bar is also open during the day for light snacks and coffees.
Our award-winning meat and sea food diner takes centre stage at the upmarket Perry’s Bridge Trading Centre, just a couple of minutes’ drive from the Hotel Numbi. It recently won the accolade of being one of the top five steakhouses in South Africa.
South African beef and seafood is renowned throughout the world for its excellent quality. We’ve sourced ours to bring you the best there is. Whether you choose a prime rib or piece of fillet, our steaks are perfectly aged so that they melt in the mouth and are full of flavour. We offer a range of sauces to compliment your choice.

Originally based in the grounds of the Hotel Numbi, the restaurant proved so popular we had to find bigger premises to keep all our customers satisfied.
You’ll find this authentic Italian right next door to Pioneer’s Grill. Topolino’s prides itself on preparing traditional Italian dishes that have been popular for generations.
The secrets of our aromatic tomato sauces were learned from an award-winning Italian restauranteur
called Cinzia. She emigrated to South Africa several years ago with a clutch of classic Italian recipes in hand.
All our pizzas are freshly made to order. We do our best to source our ingredients locally, but sometimes only Italian products will do, and that includes our especially imported parmesan and coffee.
There always real buzz at Topolino’s. It’s a great place to bring the family or meet up with friends.
