Together with South Africa’s Kruger National Park and Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park, Limpopo National Park forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. Gonarezhou connections are still in the future, but Kruger and Limpopo are linked via two fully functioning border crossings.
Most visitors use Limpopo as a transit corridor between Kruger and the coast. That said, there are several 4WD eco-trails, as well as light hiking and canoeing. All activities can be booked through www.dolimpopo.com.
Poaching is a problem in Limpopo, although great strides have been made in recent years in curbing it. Yet, wildlife on the Mozambique side can’t compare with that in South Africa’s Kruger, and it’s quite possible to spend time in the park without seeing large animals.
