This area is fantastic for safari-seekers….it is the wildlife-rich game lands of the Lowveld and northern Kruger National Park that top the list for great places to visit.
From the wide open bushveld, big-sky country, the ever present thorn tree and the mystical baobab tree, the Limpopo is a land of myths, legends and beautiful scenery. For those with an adventurous spirit, rent a car and do a self-drive. Or use an experienced tour guide that offers insight into the different attractions.
The centrally-positioned town of Polokwane (Pietersburg) is the capital of this diverse province. Stretching up through the Waterberg and Soutpansberg ranges north of the Limpopo River valley, the province of Limpopo has much to offer. The spectacular mountain scenery of the region beckons hikers, climbers and bikers, while mystic cultural destinations intrigue visitors.
The climate in the Limpopo Province is pretty hot since the area runs through the tropic of Capricorn. During summer months (October and March) the heat is often interrupted by thunderstorms in the afternoon, which cools everything down and brings welcome relief from the intense heat of the day.
Visitors from cooler countries usually prefer to visit the Limpopo province in winter as there is plenty of sunshine but the air itself is a bit cooler. During this time of the year, the days usually start with a chill in the air which progresses to a warm midday, and cool, dry afternoon. At night the temperature drops dramatically and you usually need to reach for a blanket or warm top to stay comfortable.
Malaria cautions need to be taken when visiting the Limpopo Province; however, there are some areas that are MALARIA FREE. Check this before you do any bookings.
