The Kruger National Park: part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park

 

"The Kruger National Park is not only the largest national park in South Africa. Since 2001, together with the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe and the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique, it is connected to the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park.

After connecting several small wildlife sanctuaries, the park measures 35,000 square kilometers today. This is nearly the size of the Netherlands. The first 25 elephants were relocated from South Africa to Mozambique in 2001, more than 1,000 more have followed, so Mozambique has to offer a sizable population today.

Also, many of the other 140 species of mammals of the Kruger Park as springbok, giraffes, lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas have now found their way into the neighboring country.

In the future, the park within the three countries will continue to grow and will also include the national parks Banhine and Zinave on the Mozambican side. In the long term the protected area will cover 100,000 square kilometers. "
