Management & Development Plan


Limpopo National Park Management & Development Plan

This first edition of the Management Plan is a multi-authored, collaborative effort. The first part contains background information relating to the establishment of the LNP and main biophysical and socio-economic features are presented. It then goes on to deal with the various programmes, and each chapter includes guiding principles, and management objectives. Where appropriate and feasible, actions and responsibilities are presented.

Certain priority areas are evident, and certain ‘milestones’ within these priority areas need to be achieved before further developments can occur. Most obviously, issues relating to people resident in the Tourism and Support Zones need satisfactory, wholly acceptable resolution before the boundary fence with Kruger National Park is totally removed and before private sector involvement in the prime tourism areas can be expected. The realignment of the support zone boundary, in a participatory manner, is a further priority.
