This photograph was taken on the banks of the Limpopo river on May 2010 during a travelling workshop along the borders of Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

In this photograph, key government representatives of the three countries demonstrate their commitment to establish links and to develop transboundary tourism in the area.

After 3 years, LTP is proud to announce its achievements accomplished so far:

- In Zimbabwe, community trusts have been established to manage the tourism sector, while in Maramani a community campsite has been developed.

- In Mozambique, a community committee has been established to manage the tourism activities in Pafuri and a community lodge and a 4x4 campsite are being built.

- In South Africa, a partnership between the Vhembe District Municipality, the Community Cooperative and the private sector, has been established to manage the Awelani Lodge, and a memorandum of understanding with the Department of Environmental Affairs is being finalised to provide the resources to operationalise the process.
