Makhado (formerly known as Louis Trichardt). This vivid city, which is best visited in peace, lies in the Soutpansberg, which is one of the most beautiful parts of the country. This historic city, named after a pioneer leader, provides a successful agricultural community. The agriculture of this area is made up of huge cattle and wild produce, and agriculture for citrus fruit, subtropical fruits, nuts and vegetables.
The privately owned goods can be used for hunting and photography trips. The many hotels, inns of the wild estates, resorts and the nature reserve that is privately owned represent this district as a tourist paradise. Birdwatchers are in Makhado also in the seventh heaven!
The Fundudzisee, which is surrounded by mountains, is worshiped by the Vendas, since once esteemed medicine men settled here. The Vendas believe that the witchcraft spirits are still there. They further believe that the ptyhon-like god of fertility lives in the lake.
No one is allowed to bathe or wash in the lake. A permit is required if you want to visit the lake. On the journey to the lake, visitors must stay in the car as they traverse the sacred forest. According to the beliefs of the Vendas, wanderers disturb the spirits of the ancestors. The casino, in a hotel of Thohoyandou, attracts thousands of tourists. In the mountains, which are seen in the background of the city, there are tea plantations, forests and villages, which are decorated in traditional style.
