South African National Parks (SANParks) has informed the public that the Masorini Heritage Site in Kruger National Park is temporarily closed until further notice due to an infrastructure upgrade. The late Iron Age site is located on a prominent hillside just 12 km from the Phalaborwa Gate on the tar road to Letaba Rest Camp (39km from Letaba on the Phalaborwa road). Masorini used to be inhabited by the Sotho speaking BaPhalaborwa during 1800s, who developed an advanced and sophisticated industry of mining, smelting iron ore and trading in these iron products. The site has been reconstructed as truthfully as possible. It includes reconstructed huts and furnace, a site museum as well as a picnic area at the foot of the hill. Guided tours are available.
