is located in the Northeast
of South Africa
This northeastern corner of South Africa is relatively little visited, it being rather off the beaten track and its attractions being rather peripheral to most safari travellers. Most of the traffic through the area is in transit along the main A1 highway to and from Zimbabwe, although that flow route has substantially reduced in recent years.
The majority of our guests combine the highlights of this area in longer self-drive trips through Kruger National Park
, exiting the remote Pafuri Gate in the extreme north of the reserve
, before looping through the Limpopo Province and turning back south towards Johannesburg.Tuli
... is a wildlife area which occupies the southeast corner of Botswana
, just across the Limpopo River and is the main reason that our guests tend to pass through this area, when self-driving to the pontoon crossing.Mapungubwe
... lies immediately south of the river, across from Tuli. It is a recently gazetted but relatively minor reserve best known for its pretty landscapes and impressive archaeological sites.Soutpansberg
... is a range of mountains which lies further to the south, standing proud of the broad flatlands of the High Veld and containing some excellent remote retreats with good mountain hiking.
