South Africa’s northernmost province lies within the great curve of the Limpopo River. It is a region of contrasts, from bushveld to majestic mountains, indigenous forests, unspoilt wilderness and farmland.
The capital, Polokwane, provides access to various nature and wildlife viewing opportunities for eco-tourists. Limpopo is the gateway to the rest of Africa, with its shared borders making it favourably situated for economic cooperation with other parts of southern Africa. Through the centre of the province runs the Great North Road which crosses into Zimbabwe at the border post of Beit Bridge.
