This tour can be taken as a stand-alone package or included with either of our Kruger National Park experiences. Mapungubwe is however a long drive from Johannesburg. We therefore strongly recommend that it be incorporated as part of a longer experience.
Two nights at Mapungubwe is recommended. San Parks accommodation will be used.
Home of giant baobab trees that adorned the hillsides long before the introduction of the Julian Calendar by Julius Caesar in 46BC. On the subject of things ancient, the Mapungubwe National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site, is home to archeological sites uncovering one of the oldest civilisations in southern Africa.Your experience will include:
A walking tour of Mapungubwe Hill (pictured)
A visit to the award-winning Interpretation Centre
A drive through the park incorporating the view site at the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe Rivers. This is where the three countries of South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe come together.
A walk along the tree-top boardwalk on the banks of the Limpopo River.
Relax at a Mineral Spa Resort (optional)
As it is a long drive back from either the Kruger Park or Mapungubwe we would recommend a one night stop over at one of South Africa’s Hot Water Mineral Spa Resorts.
Your adventure awaits!
