Introducing Waterberg

Waterberg Biosphere, Limpopo Province / South Africa

The Waterberg Biosphere is a massif of approximately 15,000 square kilometers located in the northern region of South Africa's Limpopo Province.  The Waterberg is the first region in the northern part of South Africa to be named as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.

The extensive rock formation of South Africa's Waterberg Biosphere was shaped over millions of years of riverine erosion to yield diverse bluff and butte landform. This unique  ecosystem is dry deciduous forest or Bushveld. Within the Waterberg there are archaeological finds dating to the Stone Age, and early evolutionary finds related to the origin of humans have been found here.
