Visit Mapungubwe National Park

Mapungubwe National Park is Africa's must visit tour destination, renowned for its scenic landscape. Unique sandstone formations, woodlands, riverine forest and a rich history filled with tales of royalty. The distinctive and scenic landscape is amazing to wander around and Mapungubwe Hill formed an impressive fortress in times gone by as it was only accessible through a narrow gap between the rocks.

 

Mapungubwe National Park is one of eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites in South Africa and has a rich history filled with tales of royalty. Thousands of years ago the park was home to an African Kingdom that flourished on trade with the East. The most famous discovery made here is that of the Golden Rhino, evidence of the population’s wealth. Formed to protect the former capital of the Kingdom of Mapungubwe, the hill which the park is named after is a site of historical importance. The history of the people who used to live in the area dates all the way back to the Iron Age and numerous archaeological finds have been made. Some finds have indicated that the community used to trade with places as far away as China.
