1 April-30 Sept 2006. This is the best time of year to visit the elephant sanctuary 80 km south of Maputo. The reserve is part of the Lubombo Transfrontier Conservation Area (TFCA), an international conservation project spanning areas of Mozambique, South Africa and Swaziland. Following independence from Portugal in 1975 large numbers of game, including elephant and white rhinoceros, were transferred from the Umfolozi Game Reserve in South Africa to the Maputo Elephant Reserve. However, little survived the subsequent conflict and the authorities are now working to replenish it. The 4,195 sqm Lubombo TFCA is one of six identified transfrontier conservation areas in southern Africa.
