4 TOP FITNESS-FOCUSED HOLIDAY DESTINATIONS

Dreaming of the December holidays? Aren’t we all? And while we do deserve some indulgence after a year of hard work, these days, there is a trend towards fitness-focused holidays. Think fewer cocktails by the pool and more water bottles strapped to your backpack.

Invited by SA Tourism to experience all that Limpopo has to offer, here’s my list of the top ten things to do in Limpopo:
