Luxury Accommodation Puts a “Wow” into the Waterberg
in Ranger Diaries
Once upon a time, and yet not too terribly long ago, one had limited accommodation options when travelling in the Waterberg region of South Africa’s Limpopo province, formerly the Northern Transvaal. The towns of Nylstroom (now Modimolle) and Naboomspruit (Mookgophong) were mere villages, mainly serving the farming community of the surrounding areas.
Just Passing Through
The national route to the far north – Pietersburg (Polokwane), Tzaneen, Louis Trichardt and onwards through the border post of Beit Bridge, and the crossing point from South Africa into Zimbabwe – passed through these towns, where motorists would stop to refuel and stretch their legs. The Waterberg itself was seldom the destination of these long-distance travellers or holidaymakers, unless they intended visiting family who resided or farmed in the region.
