South Africa’s northern province, Limpopo, is untamed Africa at its best. It’s known as the land of myths with contrasting landscapes from endless grassland savannahs peppered with distinctive thorn trees and the mystical baobab trees, to indigenous subtropical forests framed by majestic mountain ranges. Named after the great river that forms the natural border with Zimbabwe and Botswana, but also being close to Mozambique makes Limpopo a perfect entry point to explore its fascinating African neighbours. Offering more than 3.6 million hectares of national parks, nature reserves and game farms, including the northern part of Kruger National Park with its abundant wildlife, gave the province the reputation of being the most popular and well-managed eco-tourism destination in Southern Africa. Besides its richness in fauna and flora, Limpopo still provides the largest area of traditional communities comprising historical places and mystic cultural destinations like the kingdom of Modjadji, home of the legendary Rain Queen, or the Makapansgat Valley with some of the oldest known relics of human settlement. Whether it’s cultural heritage, historical or natural attractions you are looking for, Limpopo definitely leaves each visitor’s dream fulfilled.
