For most international tourists, Maputo International Airport (MPM) is the entry point into Mozambique. It is about 3km/2mi from Maputo, the capital.

Limpopo is mainly a self-drive destination. Roads in the park mostly require a 4x4. You can hire a 4x4 in Maputo and drive to the park. The distance is about 400km/250mi and the drive takes about five hours.

Limpopo NP can also be visited as an extension to a Kruger NP tour or en route from Kruger to the Mozambican coast. There are a two border posts between Kruger and Limpopo. The main border post is in Giriyondo, about 40km/25mi from Letaba Camp in Kruger. The drive from the border point to Machampane Tented Camp, the main camp in Limpopo, takes about an hour. Pafuri border post is in the far north of the park, but this is a serious 4x4 route and should be done in convoy. Machampane Tented Camp can also organize a transfer from Letaba Camp.

There are no flights to anywhere near the park.
