Mapungubwe National Park in South Africa
Videos | Gallery | Unexplored | Stories
You will find much said about this park on the web, as Mapungubwe National Park is both the holder of the Mapungubwe Interpretaton Centre 2009 building winner for the Golden Rhino and of Iron Age civilisation at the Lost City. Set in Semi-desert, it has wide open spaces, and the Shashe River to view.
Much of Mapungubwe National Park requires a 4×4 to get around, so expect that when arriving, as you should also expect to take fuel as there is no fuel within the park! The SanParks website says there are up to 400 bird species to check off your list as well as numerous antelope species that occur naturally in this area.
The Mapungubwe National Park is also park of a greater Limpopo-Shashe Transfrontier Conservation Area between Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa. This Peace Park should be one to visit and see from three different countries!
