The Great Limpopo TFCA (GLTFCA): one of the first TFCAs, signed by Presidents Thabo Mbeki, Robert G. Mugabe and Joaquim Chissano in 2002. A lot RP-PCP activities since 2007 have been implemented in and around the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe but recent activities have spill over into Mozambique (Limpopo National Park) and South Africa (Kruger National Park).

Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park straddles the borders of Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe and joins some of the most established wildlife areas in Southern Africa into a huge conservation area of 35 000km² (± the size of the Netherlands). This forms the core of the second-phase transfrontier conservation area (TFCA), measuring almost 100 000km² - the world's greatest animal kingdom. The larger transfrontier conservation area will include Banhine and Zinave national parks, the Massingir and Corumana areas and interlinking regions in Mozambique, as well as various privately and state-owned conservation areas in South Africa and Zimbabwe bordering on the Transfrontier Park.
