Mopani Region

The Mopani region in the Lowveld is one of the last unspoilt corners of Africa – vast, unhurried, timeless. The Mopani region has a  river in a valley called the Great Olifants River that meanders through the Kruger National Park forming the southern border of the province, it offers vast expanses that seem untouched by the passage of time and remain unmistakably African.

To conserve and extend this legacy, the Kruger National Park has been incorporated into the Gaza-Kruger-Gonarezhou Park, a transfrontier conservation area stretching over 35 000 square kilometres covering Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

This area is to become part of the proposed Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. Already, many of the conservation areas bordering on the Kruger National Park have removed their fences and now from part of the Greater Kruger National Park, resulting in huge traversing areas of unspoilt wilderness.

Within these areas and the many other game and nature reserves in the region the full splendour of Africa’s wildlife can be enjoyed. The Mopani Valley is not only rich in wildlife, but offers spectacular scenery of mountains, rivers and dams, a rich history and many cultural attractions. The contrasts in climate, scenery and landscape are both striking and dramatic.
