143 Things To Do in Limpopo

Limpopo is bushveld country – grasslands, thorn trees, the magic baobab and effortless blue skies. Host to a wealth of incredible scenery and a mysticism shrouded in age-old history, its land steeped in the mysteries of cultural heritage, Limpopo is known as the place of peace and friendliness. Lying to the very north of the country, it is also famous for its waterfalls, trout-filled rivers, forests and wildlife. Visit the mountain hamlet of Haenertsburg, the world's largest baobab tree at Sunland, the ancient cycads at Madjadji village, the ruins of Mapungubwe, the Kruger National Park, Bela-Bela, Tha Vondo Forest and Lake Funduzi.
