This gold mine of a city lies in the heart of the province of Limpopo and in the heart of its inhabitants. It was founded under another name – Pietersburg –during a gold rush over one hundred years ago. Now it proudly holds true to its new name, Polokwane, which means ‘Place of Safety’ in a local tongue. It is a friendly and sprightly metropolis; keeping its surrounding suburbs homey with roads lined with Jacaranda trees that splash purple in the month of October.
As South Africa’s largest urban centre north of Gauteng, it is an ideal holiday destination for both cosmopolitan urbanites - or those who just want to escape. Malls are scattered about the city offering entertainment and shopping convenience. The nearby nature reserve offers unspoilt bushveld and over 52 species of game to spot – including the handsome sable antelope.
