The Mapungubwe National Park is located in the northern most region of South Africa, and was declared a National Heritage Site in 2001, when archaeological work revealed the famous golden rhino and other evidence of a wealthy African kingdom. Visit the Lost City on the sacred Mapungubwe Hill, which reveals evidence that an African civilisation prospered there between 1200 and 1270 AD. The park houses a variety of wildlife, birds, plants and trees, including the Giant Baobab tree.
Mapungubwe National Park offers accommodation in the Leokwe Rest Camp, Limpopo Forest Tented Camp, Tshugulu Lodge, the Vhembe Wilderness Trails Camp and the Mazhou Camping Site, and ranges from cottages, guest house, safari tents, tent camp and a caravan camping site.
