Travel to Transfrontier Park – Inter-State Conservational Collaboration
Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park is a 35,000 square kilometres park that links the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique, Kruger National Park in South Africa, Gonarezhou National Park, Manjinji Pan Sanctuary and Malipati Safari Area in Zimbabwe and also the area between Kruger and Gonarezhou, the Sengwe communal land in Zimbabwe and the Makuleke region in South Africa.
This allows visitors to cross the borders to see diverse landscapes and a huge variety of wildlife and on ecological terms it re-establishes historical animal migration routes that were previously disturbed due to political borders.
The memorandum of understanding for the creation of the park was signed in 2000 as the Gaza-Kruger-Gonarezhou Transfrontier Park. In 2001 the name was changed to the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park.
Due to the park’s location it has varying landscapes from river gorges and Mopani forests to open plains and mountains. Across these diverse terrains you’ll find 147 mammal species including wild dogs, elephants, giraffes and antelopes, 505 bird species, 2000 plant species as well as numerous fish and amphibians.
In the park you can go on 4 x 4 adventure drives which allow you to cross the countries boundaries. Or for a more up close and personal experience, traverse the park by way of one of the numerous hiking trails, spotting wildlife and bird watching as you go.
For activities of a more relaxing nature perhaps try fishing, take a lake cruise or join an organized tour to visit traditional healers and local craft makers.
Relax in luxurious tented bush camps, some of which come complete with en-suite facilities. They are the ideal place in which to unwind after long game drives yet they still allow you to experience the African bush, albeit in complete comfort.
Get around the park either by four wheel drive vehicles or on foot either as an organized or self guided safari.
- Traverse mountains and plains to see all manner of wildlife.
