10-day Limpopo Cultural Route

Share:

Introduction

Take the road less travelled and explore the incredible Limpopo Province on this 10-day journey of discovery. The tour starts in an ancient cycad forest, hearing the lore of Modjadji, the Rain Queen. Move on to the Ribola Art Route and experience Tsonga and Venda art & culture, learning new skills. Drive through the deeply rural Venda region and explore baobab territory near the Limpopo river. Rest at the most north eastern part of the country under glorious African skies, with a safari in the game-rich Northern Kruger area.  Then head south, travelling via the ancient salt harvesting site at Baleni to another safari camp bordering Kruger and known for its herds of elephant and buffalo.
