GLTP Festival 2023
The GLTP Festival is a Destination Festival and a multi-genre music and arts event. Taking place over three days from the 1st to the 3rd of September 2023, the festival offers an immersive way to celebrate life, nature, and the beginning of summer, featuring an extravaganza of music, entertainment, and cultural activities in a close-to-nature.
Visitors will celebrate the GLTP Animal Kingdom and help drive tourism to the area, ultimately creating long-term upliftment and sustainability solutions for the region’s local communities. This uniquely African Bundu and yet the globally-infused festival experience will welcome local, regional and international visitors unified in the spirit of a passionate commitment to the environment, wildlife, community empowerment, music, and the arts.
Gonarezhou National Park is Zimbabwe’s second largest Park covering more than 5,000 km² of spectacular scenery incorporating the iconic Chilojo Cliffs, wide meandering rivers, and extensive woodlands. Widely known for its unique wilderness character, the Park has a reputation as a premier destination for quality wildlife sightings. Home to an estimated 11,000 elephants, the Gonarezhou National Park truly deserves its vernacular name as ‘Place of Elephants’. The Park forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Parks, one of the largest protected areas on the continent, spanning three countries (South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
The Kruger National Park lies across the provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo in the north of South Africa, just south of Zimbabwe and west of Mozambique. It now forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park - a peace park that links Kruger National Park with game parks in Zimbabwe and Mozambique, allowing game to freely roam in much the way it would have in the time before man’s intervention. The Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park will extend across 35 000 square kilometres, 58% of it South African, 24% Mozambican and 18% Zimbabwean territory.
Limpopo National Park is the Mozambican counterpart of South Africa’s Kruger National Park. The two parks share a 200km border, and 50km of fence line has been removed to make a wildlife corridor. 5,000 animals were relocated from Kruger into Limpopo to restock the park. The joining of Kruger and Limpopo national parks is part of the establishment of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park (GLTP), which also incorporates Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe.
