The Lebombo’s bi-annual trail auditing is overdue and Green Flag does not underwrite it currently. According to reports it is still under good management but a new audit is due.. Pls phone Great Limpopo Trans frontier Park, management to inquire as to when the trail will be updated. This is important to ensure good quality control on trails.
