Travel to Limpopo – Safari in Northern Kruger

Stretching up through the Waterberg and Soutpansberg ranges north to the Limpopo River valley, the province of Limpopo has much to offer those that venture north from Johannesburg. Previously called the Northern Province, the spectacular mountain scenery of the region beckons hikers, climbers and bikers, while mystic cultural destinations intrigue visitors and non-local South Africans alike.

For most safari-seekers, however, it is the wildlife-rich gamelands of the Lowveld and northern Kruger National Park that top the list of great places to visit. The pleasant and centrally-positioned town of Polokwane (Pietersburg) is the capital.

  • Spend a few days on safari in Kruger, one of the world’s best National Parks
  • Hike and bike in the Waterberg range – a very scenic area of mountains, rivers and valleys
  • Take a break in the Soutpansberg and experience some inspiring scenery
  • Head to the far north to the World Heritage Site of Mapungubwe, and spend a few days on the banks of the mighty Limpopo River
