Polokwane – welcome to this Football World Cup host city

Polokwane, in the Limpopo Province, is not a small town, it is not yet a city, it is somewhere in between. Having lived in Polokwane myself (when it was still Pietersburg) I can tell you that it does have a nightlife scene and boasts many attractions in and around the city.

  1. Susann is right, Polokwane has many attractions. We are not a metropolis, but that is exactly what makes the place worthwhile. Also have a look at the melted guns of Makgoba in front of the library.
