Waterberg Travel Directory
The Waterberg region is located near the majestic Waterberg Mountain Range in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. Away from the concrete, streets and bustle of people going to work every day, this region is known for its natural beauty, bushveld savannah and large animal population.
The Waterberg Region consists of a 150km long range, which stretches northeast from Thabazimbi past Vaalwater. It is protected by the 15,000-sq-km Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, one of Africa’s two savannah biospheres.
This region caters for the nature and wildlife lovers in the form of the Waterberg Nature Conservancy. It offers scenery of magnificent wildlife, interesting birdlife and rugged bushveld. The Nylsvley Bird and Nature Reserve is also close-by and boasts one of the best conserved floodplains in the country. A Unesco biosphere reserve the size of the Okavango Delta, is also situated in the Waterberg Region of Limpopo.
With a top peak of 2100m, the Waterberg region has a mild climate and some wild terrain for spotting the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino). It has picturesque rivers and cleaves through bushveld and sourveld (a type of grassland).
