If you travel the Great North Road, that long straight stretch of tar that takes you to Zimbabwe, then you will have to pass through Polokwane (formerly Pietersburg). A city of wide streets, green spaces and where, in spring, the jacaranda and coral trees burst into colourful bloom. Polokwane means ‘place of safety' and it's the perfect place to stop if you are on your way north or to the mountains of the Magoebaskloof. It's a wonderful city for eco-tourists. The Polokwane Bird and Reptile Park has more than 280 bird species while the rare Cape Vulture is protected within the Moletzie Bird Sanctuary. The Polokwane Game Reserve nestles in the unspoiled bushveld and the Modjadji Rainforest, High in the Lobedu Mountains near the traditional home of the fabled rain queen, near Duiwelskloof has the world's largest concentration and some of the oldest and largest Cycad specimens on earth. And they're indigenous. For those who like their nature a little more dangerous the Cheune Crocodile Farm will introduce you to some stunning individuals.
Forty minutes from Polokwane is the National Zoo of Pretoria's Biodiversity Centre. Along with their educational and recreational facilities the Centre is committed to breeding, conservation and research of precious species from all around the world hoping to be able to preserve them for future generations. Species like black rhino, tsessebe, lemur and roan antelope, amongst other rare and endangered species.

The small Masebe Nature Reserve, which sits on the African Ivory Route, is a community owned nature reserve, run by the local Bakenberg people. Seven villages donated their land and took responsibility, along with the Limpopo government for the reserve. It's the beautiful scenery and its three bushveld San Rock-art sites that draws people to visit Masebe. One huge 300 metre-high sandstone buttress towering over the Mogalakwena River is a particularly spectacular sight.

It's also an historic battle site and the local Telekishi community has a visitor centre and offer guided tours. The wildlife, hiking trails and rock climbing locations make it a very popular tourist destination. It's an areas where the local tribes are happy to share their way of life with visitors and the Bakone Malapa Northern Sotho Open-Air Museum is a wonderful way experience the life of the North Sotho people.

The area has a number of other wildlife areas; the Percy Fyfe Conservancy, the Schuinsdraai Nature Reserve which has eleven species of bird, listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and the Wolkberg Wilderness Area which is part of both the Drakensberg and Strydpoort ranges. The remoteness and the sheer splendour of the cliffs, kloofs and challenging streams; the densely forested ravines and magnificent scenery, together make this not only incredibly beautiful but also incredibly tough to navigate. A slightly easier option for adventuring might be the Georges Valley Gorge. Here you can abseil, go kloofing, tube, rock climb and hiking.

It wouldn't be a South African city if it didn't have a rich sporting culture. All the favourite sports are a part of the fabric of Polokwane. The Polokwane Cricket Club was established in 1902 and is one of the oldest in the country. The Noordelikes Rugby Club is the city's largest amateur rugby club based. Victor Matfield, and John Smit, Springbok rugby captains, were born and grew up here. Winners Park, Black Leopards and Polokwane City Football Clubs call Polokwane their home. The Peter Mokaba Stadium was constructed for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. There are also a number of swimming clubs and former Olympic gold-medallist and world-record swimmer Lyndon Ferns is from Polokwane as well. Tennis is another favourite sport.

The Polokwane Art Gallery has an extensive collection and the city boasts more public sculpture per capita than any other South African city. Polokwane has a number of wonderful museums and monuments. The Eersteling Monuments commemorate the site of the country's first gold crushing site and its first gold power plant. The Irish House is an historic building that operates as a museum. The Hugh Exton Photographic Museum has a collection of over 22 000 glass negatives capturing the city's five years of existence. There is also the Polokwane Museum housed in an old Victorian shop dating back to 1906. Outside of the city you can find the Makapansgat Valley. This soon-to-be World Heritage Site holds 3.3 million year old fossils in its series of caves. Based on evidence found there it seems that the area was once a tropical forest.

Transport
Travelling around the city is fairly easy as there are number of private bus services. But if you want to travel further afield - Polokwane connects Zimbabwe with Johannesburg, Pretoria and Bloemfontein by the N1 highway and with Johannesburg by air through the Polokwane International Airport. The R71 highway connects the city to Tzaneen, Phalaborwa and the Kruger National Park. If you'd rather travel by train to Johannesburg or other major cities then that's also an option as all the agricultural produce grown in the surrounding area, like tomatoes, citrus fruit, bananas and avocados, is also transported by train.
