Machampane Wilderness Camp is situated in Mozambique’s Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park, one of the most prosperous transfrontier parks in Southern Africa. Enclosed by the Limpopo and Olifants rivers, the Limpopo Park lies on the plateau of the Lebombo Mountains providing this unfamiliar park with a sense of tranquillity. The Park is stocked with game from Kruger National Park.
Situated in a conservation area, Machampane Wilderness Camp offers an unparalleled game and bush experience, with accommodation in only five semi luxurious ensuite tented camps, and game walks through the numerous trails available in the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park. Machampane Wilderness Camp is a paradise for birders due to its location on the Machampane river and the surrounding Limpopo Park forest is a wealth of bird and animal life as well. A highlight at Machampane Wilderness Camp is the walking safaris. Three different trails present three various different experiences, all with unsurpassed wilderness and wildlife.
What is Special?
The Rio Elefantes Canoe Trail is a thrilling wilderness experience for those with a thrist for adventure. Travellers will spend three days in the company of an experienced guide paddling down the Rio Elefantes, camping wild in rustic bush camps on its tree-lined banks. Cast your lure for tiger fish, look out for pods of hippo or enjoy the sighting of a rare bird during your 50km journey that ends close to the confluence with the Limpopo. The trip is the epitome of freedom in an amazing wilderness area.
Machampane Wilderness Camp is very much a self drive destination. It can be reached from South Africa by travelling via the Giriyondo Border Post which is in the Kruger National Park (note it required to spend at least one night in Kruger prior to crossing - ideally Letaba Rest Camp). From Mozambique it is approximately a 5.5 - 6 hour drive. There are no nearby airstrips to accommodate flight transfers.
