THE AREA

The Limpopo Province

Greater Kuduland Safaris is located in the northern part of the Limpopo Province close to Musina, the last town in South Africa before crossing the Beit Bridge border into Zimbabwe. 

The Limpopo Province is considered to be South Africa’s hinterland: a hot, and wild area north of Gauteng that is seldom spoken of when in truth it's one of the country's best-kept secrets and boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in Africa. The region houses South Africa's highest population of rhino and a multitude of other large mammals, as well as the great Limpopo River that acts as South Africa’s border with Zimbabwe and Botswana.

 

Culturally, Limpopo is a incredibly unique; seven of South Africa’s eleven official languages are spoken here, and the contrasting and colourful elements of each have become part of the magic of the province. The local people on the Reserve are predominately from the area and form part of the Venda community, a culture rich in heritage and tradition. Their customs mirror the beauty of the Iron Age and arts and crafts such as pottery, jewellery making, and beadwork are still practiced in their culture today. 

Polokwane is the provincial capital and is situated 200 km south of the Reserve past the Soutpansberg mountain range that is dissected by the N1 highway. The N1 is the only passage north and forms part of what was the old Cape-to-Cairo trading route. 

 

There are a few different transfer options to the Reserve once in South Africa, let us know which you best prefer, and we will arrange it all for you. 
If you are booking an international flight into South Africa, we recommend that you fly into O.R Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, Gauteng.


If you are flying locally, we suggest that you fly into Polokwane Airport in Polokwane, Limpopo on SA Airlink. 

We offer a "meet-and-greet" service depending on your travel plans.
