South Africa's northern most province, Limpopo borders onto Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana thus making it the ideal gateway to Africa.
The Limpopo province celebrates a rich cultural heritage and the many archaeological sites unearth the mysteries of the past. Known as the 'Great North' this is home to The Stone Age and Iron age relics of Makapansgat Valley and the treasures of Mapungubwe. Historians reveal that the first black Africans moved across the Limpopo (into what became known as South Africa) before 300 AD.
Straddling the northern Kruger Park, Limpopo province boasts wildlife safaris, nature trails - untamed Africa at its finest. There are 340 indigenous tree species in this region, an abundance of animal life and the world's highest concentration of leopard. Ancient, gigantic baobabs guard vast expanses of mountains, bushveld, indigenous forests and cycads. This is the land of wide-open bushveld.
Limpopo is renowned for its hot, yet pleasant summers and dry winters and is characterised by almost year-round sunshine.
