South Africa – Mapungubwe Cultural Landscape

Limpopo is home to three national parks – Mapungubwe National Park, which borders Botswana and Zimbabwe, and which is also a Unesco World Heritage Site; the Kruger National Park, which straddles the Vhembe and Mopani regions; and the Marakele National Park in the Waterberg region.

All three contain the Big Five: lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard.

Sip sundowners at the confluence of the legendary Limpopo and Shashe rivers, watch the eagles soar over Botswana and Zimbabwe’s skies, hear the echo of elephant calls, take a tree-top walk or just relax and absorb the surroundings. The Mapungubwe National Park is rich in biodiversity, scenic beauty and contains many archaeological treasures.
