Mapungubwe is rich in biodiversity, great scenic beauty.The archaeological treasures of Mapungubwe lie in The Lost City. Visitors to Mapungubwe Hill will see where a far developed African civilisation prospered between 1200 and 1270 AD. The area was already inhabited by a growing Iron Age community from 900 AD and became rich through trade with faraway places like Egypt, India and China. This is the place where archeologists excavated the famous golden rhino and other evidence of a wealthy African kingdom.
