Discovering the Makuleke Concession

With EcoTraining

IN THE FAR NORTHERN KRUGER NATIONAL PARK, LIES A TRIANGLE OF WILDERNESS KNOWN AS THE MAKULEKE CONCESSION.

BORDERED BY THE LIMPOPO RIVER IN THE NORTH AND THE LUVUHU IN THE SOUTH, IT’S A PLACE WHERE ANCIENT BAOBAB FORESTS MEET EXPANSIVE FLOOD PLAINS.

WHERE THE GRASS IS SO HIGH AND THE PALM LEAVES SO WIDE, THAT ENTIRE ELEPHANT HERDS SEEM TO DISAPPEAR.

WHERE THE EERIE CALLS OF BABOONS ECHO THROUGH THE VALLEY

AND ANTICIPATION IS HEIGHTENED BY THE POSSIBILITY OF WHAT LIES AROUND THE BEND.

YOUR ESSENCE PALES INTO INSIGNIFICANCE WITHIN THE GIANT LANDSCAPE,

AND THE ANCIENT ART OF TRACKING BECOMES YOUR GUIDE.

GAZING ACROSS THE MIGHTY LIMPOPO INTO ZIMBABWE HEIGHTENS YOUR UNDERSTANDING THAT YOU ARE JUST ONE SMALL PART OF THIS MAGNIFICENT ECOSYSTEM.

AND THAT THE PART YOU PLAY HEREIN IS EQUAL TO ALL CREATURES.
