The Big 5 at its best – that’s what you’ll encounter when you head up north to Limpopo. One of our favourite gems in this province is the Welgevonden Game Reserve in the UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere Reserve. For safari enthusiasts, this one’s a must to add to the list of local places to visit. Put your binoculars away and head to nearby Bela Bela for a soak in its geothermal springs to restore body and mind. Limpopo’s scenic natural splendour is just a stone’s throw from Johannesburg.
