In the far north of Limpopo province – Close to Musina. Parts of the park are on the Limpopo River. You are situated right at the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe rivers where three countries meet – Zimbabwe, Botswana and RSA


Easy access on main national roads. (N1 highway) The road around Alldays is full of potholes so care needs to be taken

A 4x 4 is not required but vehicle with high clearance is recommended in the park itself. There are some very good 4x 4 trails one can do with the right vehicle


This is a Sanparks reserve. A variety of accommodation is available – camping / chalets.

We have stayed at Limpopo Forest tented camp in a luxury tent as well as at Tshugulu lodge. Accommodation is comfortable and is self-catering. Approximately 5 minutes from Limpopo tented camp is a large dam with a beautiful hide (Maloutswa bird hide – Update on this in March 2023 – this hide was in a state of neglect and there was no water in the dam – a sad situation as previously this was a highlight for bird photography. There are still birds but because it is overgrown the photographic opportunities to single out birds has been compromised)

In March 2023 we stayed at Leokwe camp – which is on the Eastern side of the park – an absolutely beautiful quiet unfenced camp within easy distance of the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe rivers. Accommodation is clean and comfortable. Pensioners discount applies if within the Sanparks date blocks. The elephants regularly visit and drink from the infinity swimming pool which is a very special thing to witness. Care needs to be taken when walking around at night as the elephants are very active. There is no cell phone signal at all.

Pensioners discounts are available at certain camps and during certain periods Note you can only use the call Centre to obtain these – not the online reservations

Photo opportunities

Elephants are plentiful (we have never seen Lion but you can hear lions at night – Possibly from the Botswana (Mashatu) side)

Plenty of birdlife including Birds of prey

Landscapes are simply beautiful.

Many Baobab trees provide for great photo opportunities. To see Africa’s 2 giants – elephants and Baobabs together is fabulous and gives you a good perspective of size and also the co-dependency of these two giants of Africa

You regularly see Bush pig in this park


Baobabs, Landscapes, birds and general mammals. Hide photography at the Maloutswa hide at the dam – although our recent visit this hide was in a sad state. You even see plenty of Bush pig there
