Known as The Great North, the Limpopo Province is the gateway to sub-Saharan Africa, bordering three African countries, namely Botswana, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. It is a diverse landscape of bushveld, savanna, semi-desert, and subtropical vegetation.
The Limpopo Province has many attractions including historical sites such as the relics of the Stone Age San, and abundant nature reserves. The northern section of the Kruger National Park forms the provinces eastern border and boasts the 'Big Five', crocodile, hippo and many antelope species. Found mainly north of the Soutpansberg Range and a distinctive feature of the province is the baobab tree of which some are thought to be over 3000 years old.
Sports enthusiasts will find a wealth of opportunities from a canoe adventure on the Limpopo River to hiking or climbing the mountainous terrain of the Soutpansberg. The province allows for seasonal hunting of animals that would otherwise have been culled for population control. A multitude of well-stocked streams will provide endless fishing opportunities for the avid angler and for the less adventurous, many of the towns offer facilities for bowls, golf, swimming and tennis to name a few. Equally popular, especially for relaxation, are the mineral baths of the province's hot springs.
A visit to this ancient land teeming with wildlife, embracing historic cultures and offering a myriad of outdoor adventures will not be easily forgotten.
