Welcome to Soutpansberg
The Soutpansberg region incorporates the northernmost part of South Africa, scraping southern Zimbabwe and bordered by eastern Botswana. The forested slopes of the Soutpansberg mountains are strikingly lush compared with the lowveld to the north, where baobab trees rise from the dry plains. The highlights here are the mountains, the Venda region and Mapungubwe National Park, which is well worth the 260km drive from Polokwane. Relatively few visitors make it this far north, but the rewards are significant for those who do.
