One of the few Parks that has a sense of carefree attached to it. No fences around your cottage and elephant paths winding through the rest camp. I really enjoyed braaiing here - not to mention that great rock pool!

Roads pretty good getting there, a few expected potholes. All staff were helpful, friendly, professional and passionate. An amazing landscape that photo's don't do justice for. Loved the guided tour up Mapungubwe Hill but best of all was a sunset game drive. Excellent sightings. An...More

The 2 hour Heritage tour is educational. I learnt a lot about the history of Mapungubwe. Enjoyed the views of the Shade river and Limpopo river at the Confluence viewing points. The tree top walk is absolutely amazing.
