Mapungubwe National Park: Cycling
At the confluence of the Shashe and Limpopo Rivers, where Botswana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa meet, lies Mapungubwe National Park, declared a World Heritage Site in 2003. Artifacts dating back to 1000 AD were first discovered in the area in 1932, providing evidence of an African civilization that flourished long before colonization. These artifacts indicate that the Mapungubwe Kingdom, considered one of the most complex pre-colonial civilizations, was centered around family and farming. Today, Mapungubwe Hill, where many of these artifacts were first discovered, and the surrounding forests and bodies of water, comprise Mapungubwe National Park.
