Limpopo Travel Tips and Tourist Information for the Limpopo


Limpopo Accommodation

The northern-most province in South Africa, Limpopo shares borders with Botswana to the west, Mozambique to the east and Zimbabwe in the north.  The close proximity of these countries makes Limpopo a perfect destination to explore the wonders of the wider African continent. Limpopo, previously known as the Northern Province, offers some of the best game viewing in South Africa. The spectacular mountain scenery attracts hikers, climbers and bikers while mystic cultural destinations intrigue both local and international tourists.

Limpopo's six tourism regions offer visitors a stark contrast between the highveld splendours of the Waterberg, Soutpansberg and Magoebaskloof mountains and the wildlife delights of the Lowveld, including the northern reaches of the Kruger National Park. Polokwane, on the Great North road to Zimbabwe, is at the economic and geographic heart of the province. Other prime tourist and business destinations include Makhado at the foot of the Soutpansberg mountains, Tzaneen, east of the lovely Magoebaskloof pass, Mokopane, Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa, which is just a stone’s throw from the Kruger National Park
