The N1 Highway - Part 4 - Polokwane, The Mountains of Modjadji, Tzaneen, and the beautiful Soutpansberg to Beit Bridge
Show Notes

Pietersburg / Polokwane is the largest city north of the Witwatersrand complex, and with a bit of effort you can discover some little hidden gems. A detour to the East is worthwhile - the mountains around Tzaneen, the realm of Modjadji - the "Rain Queen" - Duiwelskloof, Magoebaskloof - all names steeped in mystery - as befits the mist covered mountain peaks and their secrets. Getting back to the N1 we explore Louis Trichardt, Soutpansbergdorp, Buysdorp - all tracing their origins to the Voortrekkers - and eventually we get to Cecil John Rhodes' gateway to the then Rhodesia - Beit Bridge.
