Makuya 4×4 Trail (3 Nights)

Transfrontier Parks & Reserves, Greater Kruger National Park

This is one for the 4×4 enthusiasts. This trail is fantastic for those who are self-sufficient with high-clearance, low-range vehicles. You will be required to bring your own food, drinks and camping equipment. There is however, the option for us to cater for you should the group request it.

Itinerary

Day 1

Depart on Thursdays from Punda Maria entrance Gate at 12h00.

The route takes us through a couple of traditional African Shangaan Villages, before we cross the Luvuvhu river and arrive at the foothills of the Tshamavudzi Mountain range.

We enter the wild Limpopo provincial reserve of Makuya Park, a sector of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park and carefully follow the rough tracks down into the Luvuvhu River Valley to our overnight campsite on the banks of the Luvuvhu River (no amenities).

Day 2

The early sounds of nature and the whiff of fresh coffee will undoubtedly tease you out of your tent!  Depart after breakfast, and follow the off- road 4×4 tracks in a northerly direction along the Luvuvhu river.

We will stop for lunch at Mashunda Cliffs under the shady trees that line the river bank, visit the famous “World’s View” before reaching our camp site which is once again situated on the banks of the Luvuvhu River (Limited ablution facilities).

Day 3

We continue our 4×4 adventure journey across the foothills of the Tshamavudzi Mountain range to the Mutale River. We visit the Luvuvhu Gorge, various viewpoints and the Mutale Falls (potholes) where we will stop for lunch. After lunch we follow the off- road 4×4 tracks back to our base camp.

Day 4

Depart after breakfast, and follow the 4×4 tracks to the Mutale River where we cross the river (no bridge) and end our adventure at the Kruger National Park’s Pafuri Gate.
