Some of the latest information:Roads:
The roads are accessible by either 4x4 or high ground clearance vehicles.
The LNP does not recommend sedans at present.
At present two routes can be used in the park, i.e. firstly the access road between Giriyondo border gate and Massingir.
The second road is the road north, i.e. towards Mapai. Accommodation:
* Machampane Wilderness Trails Camp.
This is luxury tented accommodation run by private operator and is situated about 30 km from Giriyondo border gate. This includes all meals and guided wilderness walks.
To book there one has to contact the private operator on 021 701-7860 (Marichen).
* Campiso Aguia Pesqueira.
This is a camp operated by the park itself and is situated about 55 km from Giriyondo border gate and about 25 km from Massingir.
t consists of two nodes.
Each node has ablution (showers and toilets) and kitchen (counters and running water) facilities.
The first node is called the overlander and caters for big groups who wish to camp together.
The second node consists of individual, very secluded camp sites.
All the camp sites (the overlander as well as the individual camp sites) have magnificent views of the dam.
There is no electricity in the camp.
At present we are in the process of erecting chalets there as well.
Each chalet will consist of a bathroom en suite and kitchenette and will sleep 2 people and bedding and towels will be provided as well crockery and cutlery for 2, a small two plate stove and a skottel-braai outside.

Each chalet consists of a bathroom en suite, kitchenette, two single beds, bedding, towels, crockery and cutlery, small two plate stove, pots and pans and a skottelbraai outside.
There is electricity at this camp from about 09h00-12h00 and then again from 18h00-22h00.
* Campismo Sandalo.
This is a very basic camp site with showers and toilets on the route north towards Mapai.
* Campismo Nhampfule.
This is basic camp site with showers and toilets and is on the boundary of the park (near Mapai).
You can view the chalets or the view from Aguia Pesqueira on Peace Parks Foundation's website, i.e. http://www.peaceparks.org
Then log onto the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park.
There no longer appears to be a problem with the bringing in of foodstuffs.
However, beer, hard liquor and fuel appear to be a problem and Customs place quite heavy taxes thereon.
