Park wildlife:
  • A peace park in progress
  • Several parks in one—35,000 km² (13,514 miles²) of the vast and varied
  • A topographically diverse park--plains, plateaus, mountains and rivers
  • Big five, plus many

Established to promote peace and conservation across African borders, the grand work-in-progress that is the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park will one day embody 35,000 km² (13,514 miles²) of land and marry South Africa’s Kruger National Park, Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou, Mozambique’s Limpopo National Park and several other parks and communal areas in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Given its breadth and transnational bearings, the park’s rich, myriad offerings will join Kruger’s world-famous wildlife and tourism with the stark landscapes and cliffs of Gonarezhou and the conservation efforts and reinvigorated wilderness of Limpopo. The peace park’s landscapes will include fenceless plains, plateaus, mountains, rivers, woodland and bush, and its roaming, majestic wildlife will prove equally varied, comprising a rich Animalia across international boundaries.

When to visit the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park 

While temperatures and precipitation vary somewhat over the transnational park’s 35,000 km² (13,514 miles²) and three countries, the winter dry season (May to August) is generally regarded as best for visitors.

The SA section - Kruger - is well, Kruger. Packed full of animals... read more

This park is described as a great work in progress, and if all the expected benefits materialize it will certainly be the best game park in the whole continent. Having been to both Kruger and Limpopo I felt compelled to review this whole area in one swift move and perhaps explain why I think it will be just amazing once it is all finally completed.

Now, this big... read more

Safari suitability: 9 / 10
This park remains under development and will vary in suitability from quarter to quarter, but its overall wealth of wildlife suggests that a high ranking will follow its completion.
