Hazyview, South Africa, is a long string of a town that sits on the north/south R40 that runs from the Josefsdal border with Swaziland, in Mpumalanga Province, through Nelspruit as far as Phalaborwa in North Limpopo. It is only fifteen kilometers west of both the Numbi and Phabeni gates to Kruger National Park, so is a very useful base for trips in to the park, either by self-drive or by organised tour.
At Perry's Bridge, by the junction with Sabie Road, the Reptile Centre can be found, as well as the tours/tickets agency, where many trips can be booked. There are two big shopping malls where you can get supplies for longer trips; there are also plenty of international ATMs and a plethora of restaurants and fast-food outlets.
Your options for hostels in Hazyview, South Africa, are quite limited, but you can find some options just outside the town. It's bit frustrating if you're on foot, as it entails a couple of kilometres' walking or hitching. These options can be pretty basic, but also very cheap, but you will be comfortable and may be able to meet other travelers. These options are also set well back from the road, in green surroundings, so there is no disturbance from traffic. These establishments have self-caterers' kitchens.
