Transfrontier Trails do Limpopo
The magnificence of Parque Nacional do Limpopo, the Moçambique sector of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, provides the perfect setting for an adventure without boundaries and is now yours to explore on one of our wilderness experiences.
Whether it’s a game walk from Machampane Luxury Tented Camp, a hiking trail, a back-packing and fishing experience, a canoeing or 4x4 trail, Transfrontier Trails do Limpopo can offer you an unforgettable safari.
Together, Parque Nacional do Limpopo, Kruger National Park and Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park form the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, covering a total of 3.7 million hectares - one of the largest wilderness conservation areas in the world. Bordering on Kruger and bounded by both the Limpopo and Olifants Rivers, with the mighty Shingwedzi flowing through its heart, Parque Nacional do Limpopo is populated with a wide range of wildlife and boasts breathtaking scenery.
This awe-inspiring adventure destination is accessible from South Africa through border posts in Kruger located at Giriyondo, north of Letaba, or Pafuri in the north-east at Crook’s Corner. Access from Moçambique is via Massingir dam in the south or Mapai in the east.
