As a lifelong amateur archaeologist, Mapungubwe has always held a fascination for me. When we finally made it to this iconic location, I was charmed by the inspiring architecture, we loved the spacious, modern, comfortable and well-equipped Leokwe Camp; we enjoyed the River Boardwalk and the look-out points where we had our lunch; though an extra fee was levied, we had an interesting time at the museum - but my BIG complaint is that nowhere did we get a viewpoint from where we could actually see the main attraction which is after all the focus of this National Park. Oh yes, we could pay an extra R217 to get a ride along a road which no ordinary mortal is permitted to drive; then one may walk 450 metres and climb 150 steps - irrespective of whether you are in a wheelchair or on crutches, or like myself, you walk with great difficulty - when all you want is to get a look at the hill about which you have read hundreds of pages in learned tomes. I say: SANPARKS get your act together, build a road for the public to use; it is after all Mapungubwe National Park.
