Fodor's Expert Review Komatiland Forestry Museum

Sabie Museum/Gallery

Make time to visit the Komatiland Forestry Museum, which provides a wealth of information on South Africa's wood and timber industry in a fun and interesting way. Sabie itself is in the middle of one of the biggest human-made forests in the world. These forests produce more than half of South Africa's timber, and where once the wood was mainly used for pit props in the gold and diamond mines, today they provide the raw material for paper, furniture, and all sorts of consumer products. The museum has some quirky displays, from the matchmaking industry (wood, not people!) to a 100-year-old handcarved Irish gypsy clothes peg.
