The Politsi River is a small river that drains from west to east down the escarpment in Limpopo province. It crosses the road between Tzaneen and Modjadjiskloof before flowing into the Groot Letaba River.

The river feeds the Magoebaskloof Dam and this dam, unfortunately, has had a negative impact on the flow of the river. Forestry, agriculture and informal settlements are also responsible for the poor health of the river.
