Walk With Lions

Reviewed By ManaPet - Prague

We have visited the Ranch for the second time after some 4 years and were really surprised about the developments in there. First time there we had the feeling all the project is somehow about conservation and your payments are going to some good purposes. What a dissappointment our second visit was... The place is now a guidebook tourist trap and you will even see the cheetah running behind a small tractor - which is soo artificial and sad... As for the lions themselves, yes, you will see them, and they will walk with you for a while together with a bunch of other people. I was also surprised we were not allowed to take our cameras with us (some people in our group were given that permission though) and we only have got low quality photos from local "official" photographer on a CD. From our first visit, we had lots of photos, but this time we have practically nothing and we were sorry not to have been going to Kruger directly

Reviewed By Jessica G

Good value for money with lots of game to be viewed. After game drives, you can enjoy a braai in the park. Great activity for full day outing in Polokwane Also accommodation (self-catering) that can be rented in the park.

Mall of the North

Reviewed By 922kudan - Windhoek, Namibia

My first visit to Polokwane and I stopped at this mall to look for a gift for a friend. The mall has most if not all the shops you would find in any major mall and the layout is decent. The mall has electronic guides and directories to help find stores around the mall. There is a lot of parking and its very secure.

Meropa Casino & Entertainment World

Meropa Casino and Entertainment World is situated in the Limpopo Province only 5km from the capital Polokwane (previously Pietersburg). Polokwane means place of safety and this is characterised by the ancient baobab trees which guard the vast expanses of Mountains and bushveld. The Limpopo Province is a land of dramatic contrasts illustrated by the age-old indigenous Forests, ancient mountain fortresses and luxury modern day facilities.An area where the juxtaposition of old and new never ceases to amaze, it is a land of legend and romance that will intrigue visitors with tales of ancient tribes and fearless pioneers who braved the unknown in the days of old. To this day the province is the home of the enigmatic rain queen who, as the legend of her people proclaim, has the mystical power to make rain.Much of the land, particularly in the Kruger National Park and other game and nature reserves, is unspoilt providing sanctuary to large numbers of game. And for those who wish to experience the thrill of Africa in a more tangible style, Meropa Casino offers visitors a different adventure.

The restaurant must improve on their meal taste. sometimes tasteless and taste like the food was warmed up. also improve on the quality of chips.

I visited Bakone with colleagues. We had a great time and the staff made sure that our visit was pleasurable. I believe the museum can still be improved on. some of the facilities are neglected and not enough cultural material is displayed
