The Limpopo Park (Mozambique) is part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park project (GLTP) which encompasses the Kruger National Park (South Africa), the Gonarezhou National Park (Zimbabwe) and the Limpopo Park in Mozambique..

My suggestion:
From Mozambique I would recommend visiting the park during dry season via the Massingir entrance (320km from Maputo); the road is in good condition.
My review

There are two ways to access the park on the South African side - Parfuri and Giryondo from the southwest - and two in Mozambique, Massingir and Mapai. I took the first route, as the second route's roads are in bad condition - I would strongly warn against it.

I noticed that there are really not that many animals compared with reserves in South Africa or Swaziland: during the war, the park was a hunting zone. Even so, I came across elephants and giraffes: just amazing!

You can do canoeing, trekking or even visit the local peoples. Personally I went on safari in a four-by-four and on foot and I loved meeting the inhabitants of the park who were part of the Shangaan tribe: they know the bush inside out. It was an encounter which really left an impression during my trip.
