Welcome to Local Advertiser
Limpopo lies within the great curve of the Limpopo River and is South Africa’s Northernmost province. It is a region of great scenic beauty and contrasts that ranges from true bushveld country to majestic mountains, unspoilt wilderness, primeval indigenous forests and patchworks of farmland.
Limpopo with a total area of 125 755 square kilometres and a population of 5.4 million people, is South Africa’s fifth-largest province, taking up 10.3 % of the country’s land area. It is the gateway to the rest of Africa and South Africa’s northernmost province. The landscape of Limpopo consist of true bushveld, majestic mountains, primeval indigenous forests, unspoilt wilderness and patchworks of farmland. Polokwane is the capital of Limpopo and situated in the middle of the region. The northern half of the magnificent Kruger National Park lies in the eastern region of Limpopo.
The Phalaborwa Spatial Development Initiative (a network of rail and road corridors linked to major seaports), connects Limpopo to the Maputo Development Corridor. The aim of the Corridor is to link Limpopo directly with the Port of Maputo in Mozambique and create development and trade opportunities, particularly in the southeast. Airports are located in Phalaborwa and Musina as well as the Gateway International Airport in Polokwane. A very important route into Africa, the Great North Road runs through the centre of Limpopo and crosses into Zimbabwe at the major border post of Beit Bridge.
Limpopo is rich in mineral deposits that include iron ore, diamonds, platinum, chrome, coal, antimony, copper and phosphate. Mineral reserves found in the province include gold, scheelite, emeralds, magnetite, silicon, vermiculite and mica. Deposits of base commodities such as corundum, feldspar and black granite are also present in the region. Mining contributes to more than a fifth of the provincial economy with major mining activities taking place in the centres of Phalaborwa and Thabazimbi.
Agricultural activities that stimulate the economy of this region include Sunflowers, maize, cotton, and peanuts that are cultivated in the Bela-Bela (Warmbaths) and Modimolle (Nylstroom) areas. Modimolle is also known for its table-grape crops. Makado (Louis Trichardt) produces the majority of the country’s tomatoes, papays, mangoes and avocado’s. An abundance of tea, citrus, bananas and litchis and thousands of tons of potatoes, are also produced in Limpopo. Extensive tea and coffee plantations are located in Tzaneen. Limpopo also houses large forestry plantations including hardwood for furniture manufacture. A large section of the rural population sustain themselves with subsistence farming. Extensive ranching operations, are found in the Bushveld which is mainly cattle country. This is often supplemented by controlled hunting and nearly 80 % of South Africa’s hunting industry is found in Limpopo.
Resources such as tourism, rain-fed agriculture and large minerals deposits, together with the exporting of primary products and importing of manufactured goods and services, makes Limpopo a region with large developing possibilities and excellent investment opportunities.
