With scenic landscapes touched with the glow of the sun and gorgeous wildlife, you don’t need many reasons to make Limpopo your winter holiday destination of choice, but, we’ll give you 5 reasons anyway.
Limpopo is littered with stunning nature reserves giving visitors a close and personal look into the lives of Africa’s finest animals. Curl up inside your chalet at night with the distant sound of crickets and rise to a fresh morning and enjoy a cup of coffee on your porch as you watch the sunrise.
Warm your blood with various adventure activities
Be it on a game drive or exploring the nearby Echo caves, you won’t have much opportunity to stop and catch a chill. Limpopo offers various adventure activities to keep holidaymakers up and at it throughout the day. We would recommend a visit to ‘Adventures with Elephants’.
It’s wild out there in Limpopo
Limpopo gives visitors a unique opportunity to sight not only local favourite animals such as the Big 5 but also Bengal tigers and wolves, to name a few. Go on a game drive, heck, go on many! Just don’t forget the camera; you might just find a baboon waiting to bid you a good morning or a giraffe ready for a photo shoot.
The Sunland Baobab is reason enough
Limpopo is home to the majestic Sunland Baobab, famous internationally for being the widest of its kind in the world. This tree is carbon dated to be over 1 700 years old and home to a variety of birds and other species looking for shelter. For as little as R25 per person, you and your family and friends can enjoy a day braaing under this tree.
