mposthumus,

Lovely pics of Mapungubwe and the Klipspringer pic is outstanding. I'll be visiting the park in 4 days and thursday I will be staying at Vhembe camp. Great to see a pic of the camp. Image The volume of water in the Limpopo river is very high. During our last visit in July 2007 you could see more of the riverbed than the actual river. See my version below.

Image

Thanks for sharing. Image

Do you have any details on the conference facility? Like when it was built, what it is supposed to be used for and by whom?

It certainly looks nice....and also the rest.

Lismod, I might just give you incorrect info :oops: but will find out from my brother. He knows the history and his daughter who studies architecture, did an assignment on Mapungubwe.

Just another comparison with mposthumus. My pic was taken in October 2011. Note the dry tree in the lapa area compaired to the green tree in the pics before. It seems as if the best time to visit Mapangubwe will be from Feb - April
