Limpopo National Park is one of the jewels in the crown of Mozambique's protected areas albeit years of neglect and poaching. The park forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park together with the Kruger National Park in South Africa and the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe.
During apartheid in South Africa, the two national parks, Limpopo and Kruger were separated by a high voltage barbed wire in an effort to keep the insurgents from entering South Africa.
The park is made up of three separate zones namely the tourist zone, a wilderness zone and a resource utilization zone. The park is bordered by Massingir Dam to the south and Limpopo River to the north.
Some of the major attractions in Limpopo National Park are the Massingir hiking trail, the Machampane wilderness trail, the Machampane tented camp, Shingwedzi 4×4 eco-trail, Aguia Pesqueira campsite and Campismo Albufeira.
