Polokwane 'coming into its own'

Article content

18 March 2010

Polokwane in South Africa has more to offer than just being a host destination for the upcoming 2010 Fifa World Cup, it has been suggested.

Writing for Suite 101, Gillian Handley stated "there is more to the city than meets the eye", with many travellers having "never heard" of it before the venues for the football tournament were announced.

People visiting the area to support their national team during the summer can enjoy a number of other activities other than sport, she added.

Ms Handley explained: "Polokwane Game Reserve has 52 game species including the rare white rhino, the sable antelope and giraffe and 200 bird species."

History buffs can take a trip to Makapan's Cave, she commented, which holds some of the world's oldest fossils.

Daily Telegraph travel journalist, Charles Starmer-Smith, remarked last month that 441,695 nights in South African hotels have been opened up to tourists through Match - the Fifa organisation dealing with lodgings for the World Cup.
