Mokopane (Potgietersrus) Reviews

More info about Mokopane (Potgietersrus)

The bushveld town of Mokopane lies in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. Over the years, the town’s name changed twice before finally settling on Mokopane, named after a king who reigned over the Ndebele people during the mid-1800s. Mokopane and the surrounding region is mineral rich with cattle farming and agriculture being the primary industry, however, the local platinum mine is the largest employer.

Temperatures in the Mokopane area can soar into the 30s in summer and drop to close to 0° Celsius in winter with a summer rainfall and occasional electric thunderstorms. For those seeking game viewing, the best time to visit is in winter when the surrounding veld is sparse and animals are easier to detect.
