The 2 hour Heritage tour is educational. I learnt a lot about the history of Mapungubwe. Enjoyed the views of the Shade river and Limpopo river at the Confluence viewing points. The tree top walk is absolutely amazing.

Wonderful Park! We loved the Confluence walk to the viewpoints and the river walk along the mostly dry Limpopo river was fabulous. The Museum building's architecture is outstanding. No wonder it won "Building of the Year". The history of the park, especially of the golden...More
