Lang Hans 4×4 Trail (4 Nights)
Limpopo and Mozambique sectors of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park
A journey of adventure, mystery & intrigue and a route with unforgettable landscape, scenery and phenomenal bush-camp offerings! The Lang Hans Tour, a 4 night/5 day trail, is reserved strictly for self-sufficient (vehicle, fuel, firewood, food and water) 4×4 overlanders.
The journey starts in Kruger National Park and ascends the Lebombo Mountains. Cross the Giriyondo border post and enter one of Southern Africa’s interesting and picturesque Parks, Limpopo National Park. Following the dry Shingwedzi River Bed you will camp wild in the Lebombo Sandveld.
The tour departs from Mopani Rest Camp in Kruger National Park on a Monday at 09h30 for 10h00 and finish at Giriyondo Border Post on Friday at approximately 11h00 am.
It is advised that you stay at Mopani, Tsendze, Letaba or Shingwedzi Camp the night before the trail.
Ethos of the trail
The purpose of the Trails is to afford trailists an intimate encounter with the wild-side of this remote area. Your guide will, within reason, adjust the pace of the journey to accommodate the group’s interests but trailists are reminded that the distances and topography of the area are challenging. Remember too that “the sun waits for no-one” and setting up camp in the dark is not ideal.
You are embarking on a “wilderness experience” and the privilege of encountering special game viewing moments needs to be mentioned. It is the holistic experience of travelling through this remote area, feeling its solitude and witnessing its recovery that will imbue you with the spirit of “bygone pioneers”.
Conditions during the summer months can be very hot and humid with temperatures exceeding 40 degrees. Winter nights can be very chilly with temperatures dropping to around 6 degrees. Participants on the trail must be well prepared for the climatic conditions and should be reasonably fit.
