Four landscapes; 147 mammals, 116 reptiles; 49 species of fish; 34 different species of frogs; 500 or more species of birds; 2 000 species of plants; Stone Age artefacts; Iron Age implements; San rock paintings; 16th-century ruins; river safaris; lake cruises; 4x4 adventure drives; tropical beaches; and coral reefs – the diversity and grandeur of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park is both overwhelming and glorious.
Dubbed the world’s greatest animal kingdom, the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park links the Kruger National Park in South Africa; the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique; and Gonarezhou National Park, Manjinji Pan Sanctuary and Malipati Safari Area in Zimbabwe, as well as two areas between Kruger and Gonarezhou – the Sengwe communal land in Zimbabwe and the Makuleke region in South Africa. The park is about 35 000km2 but will eventually expand to a staggering 100 000km2.
