Description

Located in the northern part of South Africa where the country meets with Botswana and Zimbabwe. Mapungubwe National Park is rich in history as it is in wildlife and flora, and is filled with numerous patches of land that poses traces of ancient civilizations and artefacts. Mapungubwe serves both as National Park declared in 2004, and a World Heritage Site declared by UNESCO in 2003.

Vhembe Wilderness Trails Camp is an unfenced camp that is only accessible by 4x4 or high clearance vehicles, located in the eastern section of Mapungubwe National Park, 13 km from the Main Gate. Vhembe Wilderness Camp has been built on a small ridge within a valley, within walking distance of the Limpopo River and Mapungubwe Hill.

The camp offers accommodation in 4 Wilderness Cabins made of canvas and wood planks on the sides, wooden floors, and thatch roofs with netted windows. The camp runs on solar-generated electricity and no plug points are available in the units.

The cabins have shared use of a central communal kitchen that is equipped with a gas stove, fridges, a braai area, a fan, and a dining area with chairs. There is also a communal central lapa.

Mapungubwe’s restaurant offers a comprehensive menu, and pre-packed dinners are available on request. Other facilities at Mapungubwe include picnic sites and a day visitor centre, a Limpopo and Shashe rivers Confluence Lookout Point, a treetop boardwalk, Maloutswa Bird Hide, and an auditorium ideal for educational groups or small conferences and can seat up to 50 guests.

The Mapungubwe Interpretive Centre, an amazing building that won the World Building of the Year in 2009s World Architectural Awards, was constructed to house a museum with many of the artefacts uncovered from archaeological sites in the park. Information on the park's fascinating history and biology is also available at the interpretive centre with knowledgeable guides on hand to take visitors through the centre.
