Mapungubwe National Park is South Africa’s youngest and most northerly national park. Covering an area of roughly 28,000ha the park plays an important part in the conservation of the Limpopo Valley’s ecology. Many historically significant African Iron Age archeological and San rock art sites are protected within the park.
Since officially opening on September 24th 2004, Mapungubwe National Park has been developed with roads, picnic sites, birding boardwalks, and hides, walking trails and 4×4 trails. Yet Mapungubwe National Park still embodies the very soul of this primeval continent, an ancient valley where baobabs proliferate and sandstone outcrops preside over a landscape that resounds with heart-breaking beauty.
Self-drives can be done from Mopane Bush Lodge to Mapungubwe National Park with only a 7-kilometer drive to reach the gate of the park or you can even book a game drive directly with a Mopane Bush Lodge guide to the national park.
