Where's Limpopo

Limpopo sightseeing

Limpopo landmarks and travel destinations

The Limpopo Province is located in the north of South Africa and was named after the Limpopo River in 2002. The previous name was Northern Province and until 1994 it was part of the former Transvaal Province. Limpopo borders Botswana and Zimbabwe to the north and Mozambique to the east. Most of the Kruger Park is located in Limpopo.

This legendary land is teeming with ruins and other remnants in ancient forests, sparkling trout waters, hot mineral springs and waterfalls. Much of it has not changed for centuries, so there are enough opportunities to experience the original Africa. The northern part of the Kruger Park is known for its large herds of elephants and buffalo, for a considerable number of sables and a rich bird life.
