The historic town of Ermelo has an interesting past. It was razed to the ground by the British during the Anglo-Boer war, but rebuilding began at the end of the war in 1902. There is a British Anglo-Boer war campsite about 2km from Izimbali.

The longest stone-arched bridge in the province, the Begin der Lijn Bridge, straddles the Vaal River roughly 30km south of Ermelo. It dates from 1898, when it marked the old border with Swaziland, and it is 124 metres long.

About 35 kilometres from Ermelo lies Chrissiesmeer (Lake Chrissie). After good rains, this is the largest natural body of inland water in South Africa, roughly 9km long by 3km wide. In drought times, however, the lake can be reduced to a few pools, inhabited by hundreds of flamingos.  

Other local attractions and landmarks include: • Legoya Huts (10 km) • Ancient Bushmen sites (5km) • Natural hot-springs spa (70km) • Dying Sun chariot (70km) • Mzana Cultural Village (70km) • Zulu traditional handcraft (103km) • Animal farm (103km) • Swaziland (100km)

Izimbali Lodge offers guests assistance to various facilities.

The lodge is located a walking distance from The Oak shopping mall (500m) which offers a great variety of stores, car rental and restaurants.

The lodge is situated on the main route to The Kingdon of Swaziland (123km) and Lowveld from various towns such as Pretoria or Johannesburg and can be used as a stopover enroute to the Kruger National Park (300km).

There are also various cultural attractions to experience such as Ancient Bushmen sites only 5km from Ermelo and the mysterious Heritage Site, Legoya Huts (10km), a collection of stone ruins which date back to between 1500BC and colonial times.

The settlement, which is the largest settlement of it's kind, was declared a National Monument in 1986, and attracts large numbers of visitors.
