  • I have been travelling with Bruce and Judy Meeser of Wildlife Encounters on and off for 10 years now and have had numerous terrific wilderness experiences, learned a tremendous amount and become a family friend. I am very grateful that they shared their expertise with me.

Limpopo is the Northern most Province of South Africa and takes it’s name from the Limpopo River that forms the boundary between South Africa and Zimbabwe to the north. The Limpopo River was imortalised by Rudyard Kipling’s tale of the “Great grey greasy Limpopo River all set about with fever trees.” The Great North is a land of legends, home to the Rain Queen and the mystical Venda people as well as the ancient Kingdom of Mapungubwe. Limpopo is home to a large chunk of The Kruger National Park and what is now The Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park that links Kruger National Park with Mozambique and Zimbabwe.  It is rich in natural beauty, with majestic mountain ranges and dramatic landscapes. The vegetation is of the  savannah biome known as the Bushveld and has some noteworthy components such as the enormous Baobabs, forests of Lebombo Iron woods and the beautiful fever tree-once  thought by the pioneers to be responsible for malaria!
Limpopo enjoys a summer rainfall and although it is generally a fairly dry province it has many lush pockets and the northern and eastern areas are subtropical with hot and humid summers.  Limpopo Province contains much of the UNESCO proclaimed Waterberg Biosphere as well as The Kruger to Canyon Biosphere Reserve.
The history of Limpopo is the stuff of story books, in the past, due to the remote and inhospitable nature of the hot, fever ridden Limpopo Province, the area attracted many fugitives and their stories and legacies are woven into the tapestry of the Limpopo and make and mystery of the “Great North”.
Limpopo has an international airport in Polokwane and many smaller ones close to tourist attractions.
