Limpopo Province is South Africa’s northernmost province and is named after the great Limpopo River that flows along its northern border. This province is rich in wildlife (northern section of the Kruger National Park and the Waterberg), spectacular scenery and has a wealth of historical and cultural treasures.
Known as the Great North, Limpopo is a land of legend and its ruins and relics abound in ancient forests, sparkling trout waters, hot mineral springs and waterfalls. Much of it has remained unchanged for centuries, offering unlimited opportunities in Limpopo for the enjoyment of untamed Africa and is home to ancient lands and pre-historic secrets.
Limpopo is home to Modjadji the fabled Rain Queen, the Stone Age and Iron age relics of Makapansgat Valley (Makapan Caves, where the first traces of human occupation were discovered in 1925. Fossil remains of early mankind dating back more than 3 million years are found in the Strydpoort Mountains to the north east of Mokopane) and the treasures of Mapungubwe which means ‘The Hills of Jackals’ which is situated in the Vhembe Dongola National Park. This is also the site of an early 1st century iron-age settlement.
Within the Wolkberg Wilderness area around Tzaneen you will find the last true mountain wilderness region north of the Vaal River. High peaks, forested valleys and grassy hills are typical of this region’s stunning landscape, which is also rich in tea plantations.
