A favourite destination for holiday-makers and adventure-lovers from around the world, the Limpopo province of South Africa is perhaps best known for its wide open spaces and abundant wildlife. The fantastic nature reserves and game parks are many and vary in landscape from the mountainous Magoebaskloof, Soutpansberg and Waterberg areas to expanses of flat grassland that encompass the Lowveld and the northern-most part of the Kruger National Park.
At the heart of the province is its capital of Polokwane, a city where some of the better Limpopo hotels include the Garden Court Polokwane which appeals to business travellers as well as visitors wanting quality Limpopo accommodation. The hotel is 8 kilometres from the Polokwane International Airport and the comfortable, spacious rooms are set in a well-maintained garden.
Nearby is a golf course and a world-class football venue in the Peter Mokaba Stadium Not far outside the capital is the Polokwane Game Reserve where white rhino are among the many species of game that can be viewed. Also near Polokwane is the Bakone Malapa Museum, should you be interested in learning about these indigenous Northern Sotho people. Further afield, attractions include the Cheune Crocodile Farm, the Makapansgat Caves once inhabited at the dawn of mankind, and Polokwane is also renowned as one of South Africa’s premier hunting destinations.
