The Mapungubwe Landscape was declared a World Heritage Site on the 3rd July 2003 because this is where the "Golden Rhino" and other treasures were discovered that revealed a civilization capable of working gold and who traded with several countries.

The Mapungubwe Route is also the road to South Africa's newest national park, the Mapungubwe National Park which incorporates the World Heritage Site. The view point offers a vista where three countries, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa meet, as well as impressive sandstone cliffs, mopane bushveld and magnificent views of the Limpopo River.
