With the mighty Shingwedzi flowing through its heart, Limpopo National Park is populated with a wide range of wildlife, boasts breathtaking scenery and offers a range of exciting wilderness experiences.
This 1 million ha park borders on Kruger National Park in South Africa and is bounded by both the Limpopo and Olifants rivers.
Mozambique proclaimed Limpopo National Park on 27 November 2001 and requested Peace Parks Foundation’s assistance in overseeing the park’s development as a Southern African Development Community (SADC) approved project, funded by the German Federal Ministry for Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through KfW, Agence Française de Développement (AFD), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the World Bank.
Do not drink tap water in rural areas. In the built-up areas of Mozambique, like Maputo, Inhambane and Beira, it is safe to drink the water. If you are unsure, bottled water is available, although they are highly priced and sold as a semi-luxury item.
