Mozambique: Government plans to equip Limpopo park to receive tourists

31 January 2008

Nelspruit, South Africa, 31 Jan – The government of Mozambique has launched a public tender to build tourism facilities in the Greater Limpopo Cross-Border Park, the South African government’s online publication, BuaNews reported Thursday.

The publication cited the director of the park’s projects, Arrie van Wyk, saying that South African companies could only compete for the tender in a consortium with Mozambican companies.

“This tender is an initiative of the government of Mozambique and at least 30 percent of concessions must be the property of Mozambicans,” van Wyk said.

The tender aims to set up tourist facilities, namely beds, parking for caravans and swimming pools, in the concessions of Madonse and Massingir.

The Greater Limpopo Cross-Border Park includes the national parks of Limpopo, in Mozambique, Kruger, in South Africa and Gonarezhou, in Zimbabwe. (macauhub)
