KRUGER NATIONAL PARK
Declared a world heritage site by UNESCO, Mapungubwe is an Iron Age archaeological site. Visit the Mapungubwe National Park and enjoy the treetop walkway, game sitings, driving yourself around the national park, and go for a guided sunset drive.
The giant baobab trees grow mainly in the hot, semi-arid areas north of the mountain that is part of what makes staying in Soutpansberg so spectacular. They are set apart for so many travellers because they appear to be upside-down in the ground – with their roots reaching towards the heavens. The lifespan of the baobab trees is impressive and there are specimens in Limpopo as old as 3 000 years. Even the average baobab, one flanking the side of the road to greet visitors to South Africa, is around 350 years old.
