Did you know that the name Modimolle means 'Spirits have eaten'? The original name was Nylstroom, called thus after some Voortrekkers came across the north-flowing river and mistook it for the source of Nile River in Egypt.

 

The fact that there is a pyramid shaped hill close by only served to strengthen this misconception.

Modimolle hill

 

Modimolle, Limpopo, South Africa, is a charming town which serves as the commercial centre of the Waterberg. Modimolle's landmark is a solitary hill named Kranskop.

This is the reason for the new name of this town in Limpopo, as this hill is revered to as Modimolle hill by the African people in the area who used to leave offerings of food for their forefather's spirits.

 

The Anglo-Boer war concentration camp was established in Nylstroom /Modimolle, South Africa in 1901.

 

The City of Polokwane in Limpopo, South Africa serves as the capital of Limpopo, South Africa and is a definite must see for the tourist as it boasts numerous attractions and activities as well as serving as the economic center for the total area of South Africa, north of Gauteng.

 

 

General Pieter Jacobus Joubert

In 1884 this land (Polokwane, South Africa) was made available for settlement by the ZAR (Zuid Afrikaanshe Republiek) and was named Pietersburg in honor of the revered Voortrekker leader General Pieter Jacobus Joubert and was proclaimed in 1886.

This city has enjoyed a hundred and twenty years of prosperity and has grown rapidly due to its geographical location.

 

The city of Pietersburg was one of the first places in South Africa to change its name to Polokwane, which in the local language translates to ‘Place of Safety'.

 

One of South Africas most tourist friendly towns is Tzaneen (Tzaneen is derived from the word 'tsaneng' which means 'come together' in an African Language) and is situated in the foothills of the impressive Wolkberg (Cloud Mountain).

 

A must see as it is a gem of a tourist destination. Tzaneen, Limpopo, South Africa is a subtropical paradise with indigenous and exotic plants and forms the heart of the Valley of the Olifants region.

 

Tzaneen is the second largest town in the Limpopo province of South Africa and Tzaneen is seen as the 'capital' of the lovely Letaba District which are more than 2000 square kilometers of tropical and subtropical farming in the Letsitele River Valley - a real tourist destination with a great variety of accommodation.

 

The Tzaneen area is where the Shangaan and the Sotho people originated and their ethnic cultures and lifestyles are shown in a living Museum in Tzaneen on the Hans Merensky Nature Reserve.

Bela Bela / Warmbaths, South Africa was originally named Warmbad, but has now been renamed.

 

This town in Limpopo derived the name Bela Bela from the Tswana language and can be loosely translated as ‘boiling-boiling'.

Bela Bela now offers many types of accommodation, recreation and extreme sports.

A natural spring providing 22000 liters per hour of therapeutic water at 50°C. It was only in the 1870's that the then Transvaal Government decided to buy the land to build a resort and support the township in the area.

The small charming traditional 'boere' town of Louis Trichardt in Limpopo, South Africa is nestled close to the Soutpansberg (Salt Pan Mountain).

 

This is South Africa's most northern mountain range and this rugged terrain is filled with a famous tourist attraction - the giant baobab trees.

The Soutpansberg mountain range at Louis Trichardt

 

The Soutpansberg mountain range at Louis Trichardt, South Africa is 130km long and is so named because of the large salt pan situated on the western slopes.eagles, falcons and other predatory bird species. Another tourist attraction to these mountains is the fact that these mountains are home to the largest concentr

 

Musina, Limpopo is the most northerly town in South Africa and is close to the Great North road and the border post to Zimbabwe and thus, the rest of Africa!

 

The rich copper fields in the North Country ultimately led to the founding and growth of Musina (then called Musina – the Afrikaans spelling).

Musina, Limpopo is the most northerly town in South Africa

In Prehistoric times the Musina African tribe discovered the copper and called it Musina, in their language this word meant ‘spoiler'. The Musina tribe thought copper to be a poor substitute to Iron hence the name! It was rediscovered in the 20 th Century by prospectors.

 

Today Musina, South Africa is the centre of a large iron ore, semi-precious stone, diamond, coal, graphite, magnetite and copper mining area.

The Waterberg offers a mosaic of exceptional scenic landscape, a fascinating cultural heritage, an abundance of wildlife species and many nature-based tourism activities.

 

Vaalwater is the central village of the Waterberg area, the
heart of the Bushveld region. The Waterberg has been described as South Africa's best keep secret, its rugged beauty and its diversity of plant and animal life, has led to the development of the biosphere reserve and the Waterberg Nature Conservancy - the amalgamation of conservation areas in order to protect more than 150 000 hectares of the Waterberg-habitat.The Waterberg Mountain range, incorporating many rivers, streams and swamps, stretches for 150 kilometres in a long arc from Thabazimbi in the West, Nylstroom/Modimolle in the centre to Potgietersrus/Mokopane in the east. Apart from the spectacular scenery of the mountains themselves, there are many game sanctuaries, nature reserves and farms.The 75 mammal species include big game such as elephant, lion, white and black rhino, hippo, leopard and buffalo. African python and Nile crocodile are also resident, and it is a birdwatchers' paradise with more than 300 bird species.

 

There are also the artists and wilderness routes. See Places to See for further information.

 

All of these activities and places of interest make Limpopo the ideal tourist destination in South Africa.

 

Unspoilt wilderness areas contrast with the more modern, sophisticated resorts and cities in a land of legend and romance.

 

The town of Phalaborwa is situated within easy walking distance of the Phalaborwa entrance to the renowned Kruger National Park.

 

Phalaborwa forms an ideal base from which to explore this famous national game reserve, with the comfort of many accommodation options and a small shopping mall for convenience.

Phalaborwa is often referred to as the town with two summers due to the fact that it never really gets cold there, even in winter.

The Olifants River winds its way past Phalaborwa

 

So for a tourist destination this is a "must see". Tourists can visit here all year round without having to pack their heavy coats!

 

The Olifants River winds its way past Phalaborwa through the Klasserie Nature Reserve (an area of 62 500ha) and into the Kruger National Park.

THE HISTORY OF LIMPOPO AND SURROUNDING TOWNS

 

South Africa's tourist friendly Limpopo was originally named Northern Transvaal. The name was changed to Northern Province and was thereafter changed to Limpopo Province at the turn of the century. The new name was chosen because the Limpopo River is a prominent feature in the province.

 

With wildlife sanctuaries. hot mineral springs. sparkling trout waters. the Limpopo Province really is a source of endless fascination. This vast area is jam-packed with so many interesting things to do and places to see, and is best known for the game farms and reserves that recreate the original wildness of this lovely bushveld-rich province.

 

Accommodation in Limpopo ranges from affordable B&B accommodation to more upmarket B&B's and Guest Houses, to very exclusive Game lodges and Reserves. In fact, there is accommodation on offer to suit every pocket.
