The Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park (GLTP) is comprised of three parks, i.e. the Kruger National Park (KNP) in South Africa, the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe and the Parque Nacional do Limpopo (PNL) in Mozambique. The area proclaimed as Parque Nacional do Limpopo (PNL) in November 2001 was formerly used as a hunting zone and covers a vast area of 1,123,316 ha.
After the Mozambique Peace Accord of 1992 the long-held vision of linking the three national parks, as well as key interstitial areas, became reality with the formal agreements of the Governments of Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe on 10th November 2000, to establish the Great Limpopo Trans Frontier Park and Conservation Area. A formal treaty establishing the Trans Frontier Park was signed by the Heads of State in Xai Xai in December 2002.
After years of war in Mozambique, and following the peace accord of 1992, the vision of rehabilitation and restoration of Mozambique`s once rich wildlife resources and protected areas became a reality, and the vision of linking vast tracts of protected areas across frontiers became possible.
