About Mapungubwe Treetop Walk

The exquisite Mapungubwe National Park and World Heritage Site in Limpopo is a wonderland of South African fauna and flora. In 2014, massive floods sadly washed the walkway leading to the Maloutswa Bird Hide away, as well as the hide itself. This left a huge void for Mapungubwe, as these two features showcased so much of the natural splendour and variety of the area. However, the treetop walk and the bird hide have been rebuilt, and are proud additions to the park’s offering.

The treetop walk allows visitors to stroll at canopy level, enjoying the abundant birdlife in the many trees around them, as well as the little antelope and the vegetation below. This is an entirely one-of-a-kind perspective that leaves lasting memories and makes for fantastic vacation photographs. The walkway leads to the bird hide, which overlooks the awesome Limpopo River and all of the plants and animals that it sustains. Birdwatchers are urged to bring their binoculars along and to keep an eye out for the white-crested helmetshrike, Meyer’s parrot, African fish eagle, longtailed starling and a number of flycatcher species. The Pel’s fishing owl is a little more elusive than the others, but may well make an appearance at the hide.

The biodiversity of the Mapungubwe National Park is nothing short of spectacular. Some of the trees include leadwood, ana and giant fever trees to make for a gorgeous landscape and breath-taking vistas to enjoy during your sojourn through the treetops.

During your time in the park, look forward to seeing lions, leopards, giraffes, elephants, white rhinos, and wonderful antelope species (including gemsbok and kudu). There are more than 400 recorded bird species in the park too.
