This national park is a good mix of history and wildlife. A tour to the Mapungubwe heritage site is essential. Our guide provided a great insight into the archaeology and history of this atmospheric site. The game is abundant and there are excellent hides for...More

My second visit to this stunning park. There is so much to see, the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe rivers (the view is awsome), the dramatic sandstone formations, the game and many birds, the museum. Our stay of 2 nights was too short.

Beautiful landscape. Impressive views of the neighbouring countries and confluence of the rivers. Make sure to book your tour in advance, so that a guide is available. In low season that may not always be the case.

We spend 5 nights at Tshugulu Lodge in the western part of Mapungubwe National Park. The guest cottage met all our needs. The swimming pool was a huge attraction as the temperature during our stay peaked at 46 degrees Celsius. The cottage aircon worked well...More

I'm not too sure if there's hiking, as we didn't do any. Check out the Sanparks website, they'll have more info
