Limpopo is found in the northernmost region of South Africa, bordering Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Stemming from Northern Sotho, Limpopo means “strong gushing waterfalls” and, indeed, the province boasts a number of awe-inspiring waterfalls, among other splendid natural sights.
The province is home to the world-famous Kruger National Park, which stretches its way across Limpopo and into Mpumalanga. This region also incorporates various other game reserves, offering a wealth of wildlife-viewing opportunities and a taste of Africa’s essence. Visitors to the Limpopo area can also enjoy outdoor activities such as canoeing, kloofing, hot-air ballooning, guided walks or canopy tours.
Limpopo’s contrasting landscapes, including mountain ranges and flat land, and vegetation that ranges from tropical forests to semi-desert areas, invite visitors to explore a variety of settings and experiences. In addition, it boasts a rich cultural heritage. All aspects considered, it is unsurprising that Limpopo has become a sought-after destination among leisure and adventure travellers from around the world.
The breathtaking Timbavati and Umbabat Nature Reserves form part of the Associated Private Nature Reserves region, which borders on the Kruger National Park.
The reserves share an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, which allows animal species to move freely between these expansive parks. You can therefore look forward to exceptional game-viewing moments.
