The capital of Limpopo, Polokwane is South Africa’s largest city north of Gauteng. Home to the 3,200 hectare Polokwane Nature Reserve – one of South Africa’s largest municipal reserves - it’s a haven for animal lovers where you can take one of many walks and hikes to see the healthy rhino and bird population. You can also visit Wild Thingz, a small animal park that features exotic birds and reptiles.

If its history you're after you should definitely visit some of the museums in the city. Pop in to the Polokwane Museum to learn about the area’s past and view some ancient Stone Age artefacts. The nearby Hugh Exton Photographic Museum features many historical photographs of the area dating as far back as 1892. Bakone Malapa is a living museum where tourists can watch and learn from the native Bakone tribe who live in accurately styled homesteads and practice and explain their traditional activities including maize grinding, fire making, beadwork and pottery. You can also purchase examples of these crafts from the craft shop on site.

Halfway area between Polokwane and Mankweng
No good visual advertisement of Lodges in Dalmada The Excel Garage we were directed with to mark our destiny was not visual at night because the lights were off we only saw it in the morning.

Ek was aangenaam verras met die vriendelike mense van Polokwane. Veral die petroljoggies by Ranch Star stop en die kelners by Maxi's by Ranch Star stop. Kos was heerlik. Skoon dorp, pragtige stadion. Ons het op 'n wildsplaas gebly en dit was wonderlik. Nog iets wat opvallend was is hoe al die mense daar hul bes probeer om jou in jou eie taal te bedien.

Nice City
There is lots of malls and fastfood outlets. Roads are clearly marked although some roads in the city needs to be repaired because of potholls.

Ivy Park
Ivypark in Polokwane is one of the oldest suburbs in Polokwane (formerly known as Pietersburg). At first it was smallholdings but in the seventies it was developed into a suburb. I am a resident since 1986 and love living here. Many residents have been here for years. Lately people of all different nationalities live here. We look out for each other and are like one big family. If you go on holiday you just inform your neighbours and you can rest assured that they will be on the lookout for you. Because of that the crime rate is very low. Ivypark has a primary school and a small shopping...
