African Travel Concept

Limpopo

Limpopo is the northernmost province of South Africa, aptly named after its northern border, the Limpopo River. It is a wildlife destination with plenty of game and nature reserves including the northern Kruger National Park, as well as the home to the remains of ancient cultures as well as the intriguing Venda culture, steeped in myth and legend.

Limpopo is renowned for its impressive mountains, including the Soutpansberg and Waterberg. There are a number of routes and trails that open up these regions with their abundant fauna and flora. A visit to the Waterberg region is a must - this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve features age-old rock formations and stunning scenery.

The northern Kruger National Park dominates the province's eastern region and is part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park. It boasts hundreds of trees, fish-, amphibian-, reptilian-, bird- and mammal species, including Africa's Big Five. Game walks and drives, hikes, eco-trails, 4x4 adventures and mountain bike routes provide fantastic ways to explore this untamed wilderness. For the intimacy of a more private game experience, opt for one of the private upmarket game reserves at Timbavati Private Game Reserve.

Some great outings include a trip to the Amarula Lapa, where you can see how the ever-popular Amarula Cream liqueur is made, adventure in the lush Magoebaskloof, having a drink in the world’s largest and oldest baobab tree or even participating in extreme golf! Rolling savannahs abound are packed with a wide variety of animals, making Limpopo safaris one of the most popular visitor activities.
