Limpopo is South Africa's northernmost province, lying within the
great curve of the Limpopo River. It is a region of contrasts, from
true Bushveld country to majestic mountains, primeval indigenous forests, unspoilt wilderness and patchworks of farmland.

The province borders the countries of Botswana to the west, Zimbabwe to the north and Mozambique to the east.

In the eastern region lies the northern half of the magnificent
Kruger National Park, a nature reserve teeming with African wildlife
in a total area of about 20,000 square km.

Limpopo is the gateway to the rest of Africa, with its shared borders making it favourably situated for economic cooperation with other
parts of southern Africa.

The principal home language is Sesotho, spoken by roughly half the population, followed by Tshivenda and Xitsonga. Limpopo is in the savanna biome, an area of mixed grassland and trees generally known as bushveld.

A summer-rainfall region, the northern and eastern areas are subtropical with hot and humid summers and mist in the mountains. Winter is mild and mostly frost-free.

Kruger National Park
The Kruger National Park is one of the oldest and largest wildlife preserves in the world, first proposed as necessary to protect the animals of the Lowveld by the then President of the Transvaal Boer republic, Paul Kruger, in 1898. It was officially declared a park under the National Parks Act in 1926, with the first motorists entering the reserve in 1927 for a fee of 1. The Kruger is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals. There are almost 254 known cultural heritage sites in the park, including nearly 130 recorded rock art sites.
