Limpopo (until 11 June 2003 Northern Province; before 1994 the region was part of the Transvaal) is the northernmost province of South Africa. The capital is Polokwane (formerly Pietersburg). The name of the province was formally changed to the name of its most important river, on the border with Zimbabwe, after deliberation by the provincial government. Other notable considerations were Mapungubwe, the area where the most ancient gold-using civilization of the province was discovered a few years earlier.
