More info about Mapungubwe National Park
The Mapungubwe National Park situated on South Africa’s northern border incorporates the Mapungubwe Hill UNESCO world heritage site, a place of legend and a stronghold of the Leya tribe, the first indigenous kingdom in the country living here sometime between 900 and 1300CE.
Mapungubwe is part of a wider trans-frontier conservation area that links it with Botswana's Tuli block and Zimbabwe's northern Tuli safari national parks.
There are many interpretations of the meaning of Mapungubwe and the most likely is the ‘place of the jackal’. Great archaeological treasures have been discovered here and the entire region is considered of significant cultural importance. Being a national park, game is abundant and safaris are offered by the various lodges located within the park.
