Vhembe is the northernmost district of the country. It shares its northern border with Beitbridge district in Zimbabwe and on the east with Gaza Province in Mozambique. The seat of Vhembe is Thohoyandou.
The Vhembe region boasts one of the most varied natural, geological, archaeological and cultural systems in the world. It has a fascinating history dating back many centuries when the San roamed the veld and left us their artworks on rocks.
These were the times when Arabs and Indians sailed their dhows down south to trade beads and ceramics for the gold and ivory of the ancient African kingdoms ensconced in their fortresses at Mapungubwe and Thulamela.
The Vhembe Region is named after the impressive mountain range that stretches for some 130 km from west to east through the region. The area incorporates endless expanses of undulating indigenous bush characterized by the remarkable form of the baobab, wonderful wildlife, a profusion of birds and exciting adventure opportunities.
