The Limpopo Province

The province shares borders with the neighbouring SADC (Southern Africa Development Community) countries of Botswana in the western side, Mozambique on the east and Zimbabwe in the north.

Its proximity to all these SADC countries makes Limpopo the perfect springboard for exploring the riches of this exciting part of the African continent.

They call it the Great North. On the surface, it is a broad, boundless area, a landscape tanning itself in the heat of the African sun. However, let this not deter you because a look beyond reveals a land of immense beauty that brings interest and entertainment in generous amounts.

These are ancient lands, attested by the recently encrypted Mapungubwe World heritage site in the Limpopo Valley and Makapans Caves near Mokopane (Potgietersrus).

Limpopo is a land of beautiful and contrasting landscape, which is typical of Africa hence it has become a favourite destination for leisure and adventure travellers worldwide. Come to a region of infinite scenic beauty with a great diversity of natural and manmade attractions, rich cultural heritage and an abundance of wildlife and nature-based tourism opportunities.

Our network of protected areas and nature reserves are amongst the best in the African continent. Through these nature reserves, we seek to preserve our natural heritage for future generations and for sharing with the international community.

The Waterberg Region

The needle of the compass shudders as it swivels resolutely south-west to the Waterberg Region - vast, peaceful, incredibly beautiful and more than three million years old. Situated in the magnificent Waterberg Mountain Range.

This region is a harsh but rewarding area of startling beauty, a beauty which lies in its superb vistas, mountain gorges, clear streams and rolling bushveld hills, all rich in indigenous species of plant and animal life - including the ‘Big Five’. This is an area where the heat is quenched and aching muscles soothed by the mineral baths of the myriad hot spring resorts.

The Waterberg (‘Water Mountain’) is a unique wilderness area of South Africa yet to be fully discovered. One of the country’s lesser known geographical wonders and blueish in colour, the range supports a biome spanning over 15,000 km”, offering breathtaking valleys far from the madding crowd of the bustling tourist centres.
