Did you know?

At Modjadji Village near Tzaneen you can visit the Rain Queen's ancient homestead and see rare cycads dating back to the Stone Age.

Limpopo is South Africa’s northern-most province, best-known for its rich tribal cultures and wild territories where the Big 5 roam free.

It’s the one province where you’ll find legends of Rain Queens, the site of a bona fide African kingdom and ancient ‘upside-down trees’ (baobabs) that tell their own story of a timeless Africa.

Home to the growing city of Polokwane, Limpopo province is known as the‘gateway to the great North’. The city is the perfect stepping stone to the wonders of the Kruger National Park.

Another notable attraction is the Mapungubwe UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the remains of a thriving African kingdom offer insight into a rich cultural heritage that
has stood the test of time.

For nature-lovers, Nylsvley Nature Reserve is a recognised RAMSAR site (and famous for its birding opportunities) and if you enjoy wildlife a visit to the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park is a must.

For a relaxed atmosphere that combines nature and leisure, visit the Waterberg with its wonderful walking and hiking trails and wide range of accommodation.

If art is your thing, visit the Venda artists in the Soutpansberg region – spend time with these incredible craftsmen and women and take some of their imaginative wares home with you.

Limpopo has a variety of secluded conference lodges, in beautiful settings, offering Big 5 safaris and a host of outdoor leisure and adventure experiences.
