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

This is one of the most extraordinary, off-the-grid places we've visited. It's a haul to get there and the roads are pretty awful, but worth every bit of the 1,000-or-so km we travelled. It has a fearsomely rugged landscape and an extraordinary history. Well worth...More

This park has numerous large baobab trees, great vistas, large elephants and other game and sits astride the grey green greasy Limpopo River. Very rural, so pack what you need as the nearest town is about 100 mms away. Fuel up, too.

Mapungubwe is beautiful with baobab trees and all game apart from buffalo. The Leokwe Rest Camp was surprisingly nice, with a swimming pool and the chalets were relatively new, clean and private - we were sorry we did not stay for longer. The fences which...More

Mapungubwe already have the geological features, the flora, the history, all it needs is to be expanded and more animals added and it will be on par if not surpass other more famous parks like Kruger. Being a bit remote and smaller than other parks,...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
