Wildlife is undoubtedly part of the African experience and for this we have areas like Limpopo. Limpopo is one of the northern provinces found in South Africa and home to the famed Kruger National Park. Clearly the area is a wildlife hotspot and home to the Big 5; the lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros. An amazing location where alarm clocks are replaced by the roaring of lions as the African sun appears on the horizon.
