A First for Limpopo Parks

Ran across a story at the All Africa website. I know many of us are not fans of hunting so I thought some of you may be interested in reading this one too. The link is:

So sad

Limpopo is actually a province located just north of Mpumalanga in South Africa.

If I have my facts correct the Limpopo Province spans the three countries of Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe which includes Kruger National Park.

According to the African Wildlife Foundation, it has an enormous rhino population as well as other African wildlife.

divewop, you're correct that Limpopo Province is a province of South Africa. (And also the name of a major river.) But as such its borders are within S.A.

The Game Park that spans those three countries is called the Gaza-Kruger-Gonarezhou Transfrontier Park. (Formerly the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park .) It includes Kruger Park.
