Polokwane, the capital of the Limpopo Province and formerly known as Pietersburg, is the cultural hub of the region half way between Pretoria and the Zimbabwean border - a city graced with wide streets, green spaces and a vivid mix of jacaranda and coral trees that are a sight to behold in spring.
Very few travellers to this part of the world can avoid Polokwane, situated as it is right on the Great North Road. Passing through is mandatory, before continuing to destinations like the Kruger National Park and the Magoebaskloof. It's seldom one is disappointed as it's an ideal stopover before break-aways to the mountains or further afield.
Not only did Polokwane host one of the matches of the 2010 World Cup, but there are other exciting attractions that include the Bakone Malapa Northern Sotho Open-Air Museum - a must to experience the way of life of the North Sotho people - and the Polokwane Game Reserve, 5 kilometres south of the city, which has a host of scenic walks and around 21 species of animal.Polokwane hosts two Lion sanctuaries as well ,the well known Marula lodge & Ranch Hotel host the Timbavati White Lions.
The city's museum is home to the Hugh Exton Photographic Museum with a collection of over 22 000 glass negatives that capture the initial five years of the city on celluloid.
There is also an art gallery in the Library Gardens building right in the centre of town that definitely is worth a visit. And the Savannah Centre, with its wide offering of shops and relatively peaceful atmosphere, is a great pit stop to stock up on essentials or for a bite to eat.
