Get to Know Limpopo
Highlights of this little-visited subtropical province include the remote northern section of the Kruger National Park and the medieval relicts of an indigenous gold-trading empire at Mapungubwe
The main attraction in Limpopo, as in Mpumalanga, is the Kruger Park, the largest Big Five game reserve in South Africa. True, the part of Kruger that lies within Limpopo is less well developed for tourism than the park’s southern counterpart, and thus sees relatively few international visitors. But northern Kruger is still serviced by several rest camps and good tar roads, and it retains a wilder and more untrammelled character that is ideal for adventurous self-drive exploration.
