The province Limpopo belonged until 1994 to the province Transvaal and lies in the extreme northeast of South Africa. The province is bordered by neighbouring states Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. To the east of the province is the northern Kruger National Park, but this is not the only interesting destination in the province.
In the west rise the fascinating Waterberg, which offer good hiking opportunities and in the far north is the World Heritage Site Mapungubwe.
These huge trees thrive mostly in the hot, semi-arid north of the southerly mountain. Legend has it that the gods, while in a playful mood, planted the baobab trees upside down, their roots sticking out in the air! Some locals believe that you become barren if you eat the fruit of the trees! Legend has it that drinking from a baobab beverage provides protection from crocodiles.
