The name Tzaneen originated from the word Tsaneng. Oral and written evidence indicate that the area around Piesangkop, Mayland, Hansfontein, and south of Westfalia (Krabbefontein) had been known as Tsaneng since early times, long before any white settlers came to the district. The closest meaning of the name Tsaneng is ?come together? or ?the place where people gather?. To early German cartographers the sound ts as in Tsaneng, became tz as in Tzaneen.
Tzaneen is the second lagest town in the Northern Province and is situated in the foo hills of the impressive Wolkberg (Cloud Mountain), the mountain reaches of the Drakensberg Mountain range. The town is the commercial center for the district with 80 000 people residing in this area of jurisdiction and 650 000 people residing in a 30km radius.

Another picturesque village, Duwelskloof lies in a valley with panoramic vistas on the surrounding Wolkberg Mountains. Following rain, the view, the view is crisp and clear but misty days soften the view to a mysterious wonderland of mountains and wilderness.
From Duiwelskloof, the visitor is within easy reach of Mooketsi valley (largest tomato production area in the country), the Modjadj Nature Reserve (Containing the largest natural concentration of a single cycad species in the world- Encephalartos transvenosus), the largest Boabab tree in the world (with a pub inside the tree) and the Duiwelskloof Waterfall and picnic site.
This steep, winding, deeply forested pass on the R71 between Pietersburg and Tzaneen was named after Makgoba, Chief of the Tlou tribe who repeatedly attacked the early white settlers in the area, found refuge in the dense forest valleys of what is now known as Magoebaskloof. He was finally tracked down and beheaded in 1895 by a Swazi impi under the control of Abel Erasmus.
Named after George Denys, a relative of Doel Zeederberg, who was captured by the British on 8 April 1902 during the Anglo Boer war. He later returned as a road builder and his obvious care in the alignment and landscaping of the R528 ? known today as George?s Valley Road ? sets the scene for a beautiful drive through the mountains. The Letaba River flows down the valley and is the main source of water in the Tzaneen Dam.
