WHERE: MAPUNGUBWE CUL­TURAL LAND­SCAPE, LIM­POPO

Truly re­mark­able: Neigh­bour­ing both Zim­babwe and Botswana, this beau­ti­ful piece of coun­try (like the Corolla) has im­por­tant sto­ries to tell. Mapungubwe was the largest king­dom in the sub-con­ti­nent be­fore it was aban­doned in the 14th cen­tury. You can still see the al­most un­touched rem­nants of the palace sites, as well as the set­tle­ment area. They of­fer a vis­ual un­der­stand­ing of the rise of so­ciopo­lit­i­cal struc­tures over some 400 years in this part of the coun­try. And like, the other des­ti­na­tions on our must-see list, Mapungubwe is a World Her­itage Site. Don’t miss the Con­flu­ence Walk­way (even if only for In­sta­gram-wor­thy posts), a sur­faced path­way pro­vid­ing easy ac­cess to sev­eral look-out plat­forms with spec­tac­u­lar views of the Lim­popo and Shashe Rivers.
