Stories are woven through the landscapes and travelling through Limpopo is like falling in love. The ancient rhythm of the land and its people pulses through the heart of every visitor – a place that speaks of times gone by and those still unwritten, of traditions held in the rhythm of a drum and the mouth of a pot.
Experience the Ribola Art Route, where you can connect to world-renowned artists, craftspeople and musicians through authentic, hands-on experiences which will leave you immeasurably changed by the ‘Art-beat of Limpopo. Or adventure through the Giyani Rixile Culture to Kruger Route, which takes you through the ancient trade routes on a rich cultural journey.
The African Ivory Route Cultural Camps are scattered in the most incredible, hidden places of Limpopo, each of them connecting travelers to the cultural and nature experiences in the communities nearby.

Baleni Cultural Camp is the portal to an experience of a 2000 year-old process of salt-harvesting.
