Limpopo as a local holiday spot isn’t necessarily top of mind.
Yet it's a magically wild destination, with a treasure chest of myths and legend. Turns out, SA’s border province with Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique is an untapped, easy escape for South Africans.
Rising along the interior flow of the second largest river in SA, Limpopo is known for a more reclusive bushveld experience, as it is home to the northernmost parts of Kruger and forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park.
Let yourself be swept-up in a special connection with your surroundings, suggest Nadia Krige after a recent road-trip let her discover Limpopo's untamed essence is inextricably linked to unique experiences - all the way from its food to its cultural attractions.
Here you’ll find adventures that allow you to fly over treetops, salute the sun from aboard a barge or simply admire antelope really close up, all the while listening for ghostly drum beats at sacred pools.
Just a short road trip from Joburg will place you in the midst of the Welgevonden Reserve, which Christopher Clark describes as an escape that feels more like a million miles away from the city bustle.
Yes, the time is right to go exploring in Limpopo.
Next weekend we’re on an #AfriTravel mission through central Africa, with the DRC’s bucket-list Virunga in the spotlight - prepare for a serious case of wanderlust.
