One of the boldest and most exciting cross-border initiatives currently unfolding in Southern Africa is the development of Transfrontier Parks.  At the forefront is the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a total area of 35 000km², which brings together some of the best and most established wildlife areas on the subcontinent.

The opening of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park and the border post at Giriyondo in the Kruger National Park stimulated the idea to develop another Rixile Route. Rixile, meaning dawn of the day, has been used as a brand for three exiting tourism routes in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. The Bush to Beach Route, links South Africa to Mozambique through a unique experience in the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park.

The route starts at Phalaborwa and leads through the park to the towns of Massingir, Chókwe and Xai-Xai, before heading north to the tourism centres of Inhambane and Vilankulo. A new concept in tourism, the bush to beach experience provides travellers with the opportunity to have the best of both worlds. You can spend a few days in one of Southern Africa’s most renowned game parks, before reaching the pristine beaches of Mozambique, which offer activities such as scuba diving, snorkelling, angling and whale-watching.
