Getaway Magazine – April 2013 – Mapungubwe National Park

Mapungubwe National Park is fast becoming one of the most popular national parks in the country. This is the place to come if you’re looking for a sense of history, grandeur and intrigue. Mapungubwe is the site of Southern Africa’s oldest formal civilisation, dating back to AD 1200, and walking tours to the burial site on top of the eponymous hill are highly recommended. As part of the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation Area, which includes conserved land in neighbouring Botswana and Zimbabwe, the national park in South Africa offers visitors a fantastic sense of Africa as it once was, with a surprising amount of wildlife.
