Polokwane

PPolokwane is the capital city of Limpopo, and has a vibrant mix of people and interesting culture. With great restaurants, art galleries, museums, jazz clubs and shopping centres, it is considered the heartbeat of Limpopo. It's also called the gateway city because it's a stepping stone to an assortment of natural attractions; from mountains to wilderness areas, Polokwane is magical and diverse.

As mentioned, Polokwane is the urban heartbeat of Limpopo. From great African jazz clubs to the biggest shopping centre in Limpopo, Polokwane has an entertaining mix of city adventures, and plenty of game reserves and natural attractions right on its doorstep.
