Directions to Masorini Ruins Picnic Site
The Masorini Picnic Site, lies at the foot of the Masorini Ruins, which are of great cultural significance.
Masorini, in line with most other picnic sites, has a kiosk from which you can purchase cold soft drinks, and hire your gas cannister. Picnic tables are placed under thatch "umbrellas" so as to keep you out of the rays of the direct sun. The eating tables are on a raised platform that requires assistance to get onto the higher level.
The site was inhabited by the Sotho speaking BaPhalaborwa during 1800’s, who developed an advanced and sophisticated industry of mining, smelting iron ore and trading in these iron products. Dome shaped clay furnaces found on the site were used to smelt the iron ore. There is a site museum at the picnic and guided tours can be taken to the top of the hill where the reconstructed huts and furnace can be seen.
Marorini is situated just off the H9 38km/1hr 35min from Letaba, and only 12km/25min from the Phalaborwa Gate.
