With a name meaning "strong gushing waterfalls" in the Sepedi language, Limpopo features powerful streams, rivers, and waterfalls. A trip through Limpopo reveals several mining towns; tea, tropical fruit, and forestry production areas; as well as mineral springs to the south. A road cuts through the middle of Limpopo, which acts as an important route towards the rest of Africa. Rich in natural resources, Limpopo's tourist attractions include more than 50 game reserves.
