A new terminal has been built at the airport to accommodate the flood of visitors the World Cup will bring, and is also titled the ‘Gateway Airport’. If you are getting a flight to Polokwane and fancy doing some exploring between matches then Polokwane’s location makes it an ideal place from which to fly to Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Swaziland. If you prefer to stay put, then visit the Polokwane Game reserve with a 20km hiking trail as well as the opportunity to see White Rhino and twenty other species. Also worth a trip is the Balkone Malapa Museum which is a “living” museum where you can learn about the traditions and culture of the Northern Sotho people. Polokawane itself is an attractive city with wide open streets and green spaces; take time to explore the Savannah Centre with a wide variety of shops and the Hugh Exton Photographic museum which charts the early days of the city.The climate is pretty much ideal and at World Cup time, expect around 20 degrees Celsius. But don’t be fooled – at 1300m above sea level, it is still easy to burn at that temperature.Matches:Fixture| Date RelatedSouth Africa World Cup 2010 – Peter Mokaba Stadium, PolokwaneSouth Africa World Cup 2010 – Peter Mokaba Stadium, PolokwaneSouth Africa World Cup 2010 – VenuesSouth Africa World Cup 2010 – VenuesSouth Africa World Cup 2010 – FranceSouth Africa World Cup 2010 – France [World CupGroups](http://www.skyscanner.net/news/articles/2010/04/005225-south-africa-world-cup-2010—groups.html) —|—|—|— Cheap flightsto South Africa [World CupVenues](http://www.skyscanner.net/news/articles/2010/04/005220-south-africa-world-cup—venues.html)| [World CupHome](http://www.skyscanner.net/news/articles/2010/04/005215-south-africa-world-cup—home.html)| [World CupPackages](http://www.skyscanner.net/news/articles/2010/04/005233-south-africa-world-cup-2010—packages.html) Polokwane, Limpopo ProvinceStadium: The Peter Mokaba Stadium [World CupSchedule](http://www.skyscanner.net/news/articles/2010/04/005224-south-africa-world-cup-2010—schedule.html)| [World CupTeams](http://www.skyscanner.net/news/articles/2010/04/005223-south-africa-world-cup-2010—teams.html)| ——Algeria v SloveniaSun 13 JuneFrance v MexicoThu 17 JuneGermany v ArgentinaFri 22 JuneParaguay v New ZealandMon 24 June [World CupNews](http://www.skyscanner.net/news/articles/south-africa-world-cup-news/)| [World CupDestinations](http://www.skyscanner.net/news/articles/2010/04/005221-south-africa-world-cup-2010—destinations.html)| ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map | Great deals on car hirein South Africa | Great deals on packages to theSouth Africa World Cup Save more on hotelsin South Africalast_img read more
