Europcar Polokwane Airport car hire for Limpopo at leisure
Both the town and its airport were formerly known as Pietersburg but they’ve been renamed as Polokwane. The city is the capital of the Limpopo province and because of its geographical position it’s often termed the Gateway to Africa. The Polokwane International Airport is 5 km north of the city and handles about 38 000 passengers a year. It’s a vital cog in Limpopo’s infrastructure as in serves as an international entry point into the province and the country. Use your Polokwane Airport Europcar rental to drive into the city centre with its leafy, green streets. Spring in Polokwane is beautiful as the jacaranda and coral trees show off their blooms.
See local art at the Polokwane Art Museum, visit the impressive Hugh Exton Photographic Museum and the Bakone Malapa Northern Sotho Open-Air Museum is a must-see. The town has excellent jazz clubs, the biggest shopping centre in the province and a golf course older than the town itself. Rent a car through us at Drive South Africa from the Europcar Polokwane Airport branch to set off on a self-drive adventure to track the white rhinos of the Polokwane Game Reserve or make the quick trip to the world-famous Kruger National Park.

Polokwane’s city is on the Great North Road, which takes you into Zimbabwe. Use your Europcar Polokwane Airport rental to explore it and South Africa’s other neighbours including Botswana, Mozambique and Swaziland, although when entering these countries it’s often a better idea to drop off your standard car and pick up a 4×4. We can organise that for you.
