Unique qualities

This is the only park in Zimbabwe which has both banks of a major river (Runde River) within the park. The Save River in the north east and the Mwenezi in the south west also sweep through the park providing life sustaining water in this harsh, dry environment. There are literally hundreds of species of birds, wildlife and fish kept alive by these waters.

The park is the jewel in the crown of the Great Limpopo Trans Frontier Park, a massive Pan-African park covering an area of 35 000 km². The trans frontier park has been set up by forward thinking conservation initiatives and is set to become one of the largest wildlife parks in the world.
