The Makgabeng Plateau lies south of the Blouberg and west of the Soutpansberg, near the town of ‘My Darling’ in the North-west of Limpopo Province. Rising 200 metres above the bushveld, the Makgabeng stretches over a distance of 250 square kilometres and most of this is uninhabited. Imagine towering ochre cliffs, strange rock formations rising out of the bushveld surrounds, vast expanses of wilderness and over 800 unique KhoeKhoe, San and Sotho rock art sites undisturbed for centuries. Imagine this and you are still nowhere close to the reality of this awe-inspiring, wild and wonderful place. It has all the essential elements of a really good holiday!
