Limpopo Province borders Mozambique in the east, Swaziland in the south east, Mpumalanga and North West in the south, Botswana in the west, and Zimbabwe in the north. The whole northern border is demarcated by the Limpopo river. The southern border seems quite arbitrary. Some thought must have gone into this decision, but it eludes me.
Limpopo Province is the erstwhile Northern Transvaal with Polokwane (Pietersburg) as capital. The main languages spoken here are – Sesotho (North Sotho – Bapedi), Xitsonga (Shangaan), Tshivenda (Venda), Afrikaans, and English. Limpopo is rich in biodiversity, culture, wildlife, plant-life, and commodities.
Tourism is growing, especially ecotourism as there are many protected environmental areas and community development projects in the hope of achieving sustainable growth.
Limpopo boasts spectacular scenery and a wealth of cutural and historical treasures, ruins, relics, restaurants, hotels, spas, and interesting things to do and see. The winters are mil, mostly frost free, and it is a summer rainfall area.

Limpopo Province History
First Africans moved across the border before 300 AD, and bushmen were already living here. They were virtually annihilated, and fled to the desert areas of Namibia and the Karoo. Many battles were fought with europeans and voortrekkers over the land invasion. It is said to be the home of Modjadji the fabled ‘queen of rain’.
