The Springbok Flats is an extensive plain in Limpopo, South Africa. The southern border is the Pienaars River where it crosses the N1 from Tshwane to Polokwane.
The plain is 80 km wide and 130 km long and the altitude is 1000 m above sea level.
It is a farming region, but the name of the Springbok Flats is a reminder of the great herds that once populated the plain.

I am the owner of Flycatcher Travel and my idea with this blog is to report on sites that we visit. I am also very interested in South African history.
