The province shares its name with the Limpopo river which forms the northern boundary with Zimbabwe and Botswana. The most common spoken languages in the Limpopo Province are Tsonga, Northern Sotho, Venda and Afrikaans. Polokwane is the capital of the Limpopo Province. Polokwane was formerly known as Pietersburg and is a popular ecotourism destination in South Africa.
