Vaalwater is a small town located on the Mokolo River in the South African province of Limpopo. It is located on the southern border of the rugged Waterberg Massif, a biosphere that is home to a vast array of species, including numerous large mammals, including some of the "Big 5" Particularly abundant hunting opportunities exist in the province's northern and northwestern regions, which include the Vaalwater region.
The Church of St. John the Baptist, located outside of Vaalwater, is one of the more unusual places to visit in the Vaalwater. On the way to Melkrivier is a delightful thatched church designed by the renowned architect Sir Herbert Baker and constructed from native materials. There are several herb plantations in the Vaalwater region that can be visited.
Limpopo Tourism has designed five self-drive routes to discover, investigate, and experience the heartbeat of the Waterberg Bushveld. These routes are concentrated in Lephalale but cover the region between Thabazimbi and Alldays. Vaalwater is a popular stopover on the way to the Waterberg Massif and Botswana, and it is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination in its own right.
UNESCO has designated Waterberg as the first region in northern South Africa to be a Biosphere Reserve. Hundreds of millions of years of riverine erosion shaped the extensive granite formation into a variety of bluff and butte landforms. There are a variety of cafés and restaurants, as well as craft, art, and gift stores. Vaalwater offers a variety of commercial services that are uncommon in the surrounding area, particularly on roads leading to Botswana. These include banks, grocery stores, gas stations, a post office, and medical facilities.
