Limpopo National Park (LNP) in Mozambique was established in 2001 and is a transfrontier park that connects to Kruger National Park in South Africa. LNP is home to 27,000 people, with approximately 20,000 living in the park's buffer zone. The remaining 7,000 live in eight villages in the park's interior, in the Shingwedzi River Valley. The Shingwedzi River Valley is an area designated for tourism by Limpopo National Park given its ability to provide outsiders with the ‘wilderness’ experience. This type of experience is believed to be what attracts private sector investment. Conservationists from international conservation organizations and national agencies hold the view that people and wildlife cannot coexist - that people are a threat to nature, and thus, should be removed from areas designated to preserve nature or at least restrict their access to it. Resettlement is presented as an opportunity for people that will provide better education, health facilities, public transportation, and employment, however, it has been argued that resettlement and transfrontier conservation are unlikely to lead to development. Residents in villages designated for resettlement expressed concerns about their livelihoods outside the park, such as access to land suitable for agriculture, lack of forest resources, and grazing land for cattle. Competition with other villages for resources is also a concern among residents.
