  • The Transfrontier Parks of Southern Africa http://www.boundlessa.com http://www.peaceparks.org
  • !Xaus Lodge provides eco-luxury accommodation in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. A place to experience - not just to observe The complex comprises a central lodge building and 12 individual chalets, each with its own deck overlooking a vast salt pan.  Owned by the ‡Khomani San (Bushman) and Mier communities,  !Xaus Lodge is commercially managed by Transfrontier Parks Destinations. Guests participate in dune walks, visit the local Bushman at a re-created craft village, go on evening drives and experience the night sky. Here you will learn about the wonder of the Kalahari - the plants and animals, and how man has integrated into this wilderness area. The tariff includes accommodation in en-suite chalets, all meals, activities and transfer from Kamqua Picnic site. More details on !Xaus Lodge at www.xauslodge.co.za
  • Machampane Wilderness Camp is an intimate 10-bed camp in the Mozambique sector of the Great Limpopo Transfrontierl Park.  Unfenced and secluded, visitors to the camp have a magnificent opportunity to see the untamed, natural African bush.  Guided morning and evening walks are a feature of the experience. Leave at first light with a guide and armed ranger to catch the morning movements in the bush and feel the day awakening. The spoor or sighting of one of the Big 5 is a possibility. Return for brunch and spend the heat of the day in camp absorbing the tranquility of this riverine area. Go on a late afternoon walk and experience the different nature as the bush starts to fold up and go to sleep.  Return in time for pre-dinner drinks in the boma, and dinner - all the while accompanied by the sounds of micro-frogs. Later in the evening, as everything quietens down, return to your tent and experience the peace of a night in the bush. The tariff includes meals, activities and accommodation. Less than an hour from the Giriyondo Boarder Post in Kruger this is an ideal destination for visitors who have &amp;quot;been there, done that&amp;quot; in Kruger and want to see more of the African bush. For more information see www.dolimpopo.com
  • Covane Fishing &amp; Safari Lodge provides accommodation, houseboats and camping facilities for adventure travellers and backpackers. With access to the Massingir Dam, it is ideal for catch-and-release tiger fishing, as well as boat-based game watching. There are pods of hippo and crocodile to view in the Elefantes Gorge,  and the area is a paradise for bird watchers. Massingir Dam, with a 5km wide wall, stretches 30kms into the Elefantes Gorge, and can be explored by boat all the way up to the South African border with the Kruger National Park.  Covane Fishing &amp; Safari Lodge is an ideal over-night stop for people travelling between Maputo and Phalaborwa. Owned by the Canhane Community, and commercially managed by Transfrontier Parks Destinations , the Lodge is in the process of being upgraded. For more details see www.covanelodge.com
  • Palarangala Wilderness Trail • 3 night 4 day walking trail with a minimum of 4 and maximum of 8 guests. Accommodation is in a remote unfenced rustic bush camp with two-man dome tents, camp mattresses and bush ablutions. Wake at dawn, you set out on foot shortly after sunrise in the company of your guide and armed ranger following the river course or exploring the Lebombo plateau close to the boundary with Kruger. Brunch is back at camp before a siesta and late afternoon walk in search of fresh signs of activity.  Trails are led by an experienced guide and are fully catered.  More details here Lebombo Hiking Trail • 3 night 4 day hiking trail with a minimum of 4 and maximum of 8 guests. Overnight in unfenced rustic bush camps set deep in this remote wilderness, reminiscent of the pioneers of days gone by. Distances hiked are around 12-15 kms per day which affords the opportunity for numerous stops for bird and game viewing and interpretation by your guide.  Campsites have bush ablutions and accommodation is in two-man dome tents equipped with camping mattresses. Trails are led by an experienced guide and are fully catered and portered so you need carry only a day-pack. More details here  Elefantes Gorge Backpacking and Fishing Trail • 4 night 5 day backpacking trail with a minimum of 8 and maximum of 8 guests. Camp wild for four nights and traverse the plateau above the Rio Elefantes gorge on foot, descending to the shores of Massingir dam to fish for Tiger amongst others – the epitome of freedom in an amazing wilderness area. Trails are led by an experienced guide but you are required to be totally self-sufficient. The terrain is rugged and requires a good level of fitness for the 15 to 20 km hiked each day. More details here Rio Elefantes Canoeing Trail • 3 night 4 day canoe trail with a minimum of 4 and maximum of 8 guests. Paddle the Elefantes - between the confluence of the Shingwedzi and the confluence of the Limpopo. Spend three days journeying down the Rio Elefantes, camping wild in rustic bush camps on its tree-lined banks . A cast for tiger fish, a pod of hippo or the sighting of a rare bird will enthral you on your 50km journey that ends close to the confluence with the Limpopo – the epitome of freedom in an amazing wilderness area.  More details here Shingwedzi 4x4 Eco-Trail • 5 night 6 day 4x4 self-drive trail with a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 vehicles This self-drive route traverses Parque Nacional do Limpopo, the magnificent wilderness area that lies adjacent to Kruger and is Moçambique’s contribution to the 3.7 million hectare Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. We meet at Pafuri picnic site in Kruger and set out on this awe-inspiring adventure through the border post located at Pafuri, going south and and ending at the Giryondo border post, just north of Letaba Rest Camp in Kruger.
