Centred on the world-famous Kruger National Park, the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park spans three countries and is abutted by several prestigious private game reserves
Extending across 35,000 square kilometres, the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park was created in 2001 when South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe signed a memorandum of understanding amalgamating the Kruger National Park with the cross-border Limpopo and Gonarezhou National Parks.
The transfrontier park also unofficially incorporates several small and exclusive private reserves that run along the Kruger's western border, unimpeded by fences, which were taken down in the 1990s. More than 160 mammal species have been recorded, including all the Big Five, and the protected area supports the largest extant populations of white and black rhino.

Kruger was the first game reserve I visited, and it remains one of my firm favourites. For first-time visitors, a recommended approach is to start with a few days of relaxed, self-drive exploration, followed by a night or two of more intensive game viewing at a private game reserve.

The main tourist focus is the Kruger itself. Founded in the 19th century, this vast national park extends for 350 kilometres from north to south and spans two provinces, i.e. Limpopo and Mpumalanga. It is better suited to affordable self-drive exploration than any other African destination, thanks to its extensive network of good tar roads and inexpensive rest camps. These are mainly concentrated in the park's southern third, within Mpumalanga, about four hours' drive east of Gauteng and OR Tambo International Airport.
At the opposite end of the cost scale is the bloc of private reserves along the Kruger's western border. These include such exclusive upmarket bush retreats as MalaMala, Londolozi, Singita and Sabi Sabi, which host a concentrated, all-inclusive safari experience in open 4x4s manned by knowledgeable guides and trackers. Rather less well developed are the transfrontier park's Zimbabwean and Mozambican components. However, the recently opened Giriyondo border post does allow direct road access to Limpopo National Park, which has one small private camp offering canoeing and foot safaris.
