You will be met by a Limpopo Valley Hores Safari representative and driven to a LHS camp. Upon departure you will be collected again from the Pont Drift Border Post and driven back to Johannesburg.

Other possibilities:

You can self-drive or alternatively you can contact us and we will arrange a charter flight for you to the Limpopo Valley Airfield.
