The Luvuvhu Trail runs from Phalaborwa to Pafuri, through the Limpopo provincial reserves of Letaba Ranch and Makuya Park which forms part of the area known as ‘Greater Kruger National Park’. Trailists need to be fully self-sufficient with low-range, high-clearance 4×4 vehicles (soft-riders can’t get through this territory).
The option exists for trailists to use off-road, 4×4 trailers. Bring your own camping equipment, food and drinks.The lead guide has his own vehicle, and 2-way radios are provided for all vehicles on the trail.

Bring your own camping equipment, food, and drinks (no water is provided for cooking or drinking). The lead guide has his own vehicle, and 2-way radios are provided for all vehicles on the trail.
You will also be required to arrange your own accommodation for the night before the trail begins at a location that will allow sufficient time to get to the meeting point.
The terrain is such that it is suited only to off-road 4×4 vehicles with off-road trailers, must be equipped with low range transmission and have good ground clearance. 4×4 “soft roaders” or vehicles with low profile tyres are not suitable. Vehicles should be given a long distance service before the trail.
No camping equipment is supplied.
Trailists must for safety considerations sleep in a tent.
Trailists must be totally self-sufficient for the duration of the trail. This includes all fuel, food, water, firewood, camping gear, cooking utensils, cutlery, and crockery etc.
No waste may be burned or left in the Park, therefore, you should have strong plastic bags available to manage waste effectively.
This forfeiture applies to all persons who by virtue of their late arrival are unable to accompany the trail. No refund of the trail fee will be made
The Luvuvhu 4×4 Eco-Trail is located in Big 5 territory and overnight camps are unfenced.
The trail takes place in an area populated by wild animals and whilst it is accompanied by a guide it nevertheless carries the risk of injury or death
In light of the exposed nature of the Luvuvhu off-road 4×4 Eco-Trail trailists must complete an indemnity form. Minors must be in possession of an indemnity form signed by a parent or legal guardian. These forms must be signed in the presence of the Trails Guide.
Regrettably, when all places on a trail are not booked by a single group, children under the age of 12 may not participate.
The general rules and regulations of Letaba Ranch, Makuya Park and Kruger National Park apply to our guests.
Trailists depend on the trails guide for their safety and for guidance. For their own safety and that of the other trailists, the instructions of the guide should be obeyed at all times. Failure to co-operate in this respect could lead to the immediate cancellation of the trail.
For reasons of safety and sensitivity, excessive consumption of liquor is strongly discouraged. Liquor may only be consumed at the overnight campsites.
The Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park is located in a Malaria area.
Malaria prophylactics are essential. Tailists should consult their doctor or chemist.
Whilst every endeavour is made to adhere to the trail description set out above, our trails are conducted in remote wilderness areas and occasionally circumstances in the park or prevailing weather conditions, over which we have no control, may arise. We reserve the right to amend the routing, location of campsites, distances travelled etc of any specific trail or trails and the guide’s decision in this regard is final. If this happens on a trail on which you are a participant, we would appreciate your understanding.
