The Massingir Dam Campsite at Aguia Pesqueira is a handy stopover on the route through the Kruger National Park to Xai Xai on the Mozambique coast.
This wilderness campsite is situated on a hill overlooking the huge dam.
It is also in the Limpopo Trans Frontier park bordering the Kruger National Park.
Do yourself a favor and stay over for a couple of days.
It is such a beautiful spot and as it is quite a trek to get here over some slow going gravel roads, you may as well make use of the opportunity to relax in these tranquil surroundings.

We made the mistake of just stopping over and rushing off again early the next morning, so now I will have to go back again!
The gravel road through the Limpopo Trans Frontier park is quite rough and you will need a vehicle with high ground clearance.
If you are towing it would be better to use a 4X4.
Otherwise we did not find it essential for a 4 wheel drive vehicle as we were there in the winter and conditions were dry.
I imagine it could be a different story in summer during the rainfall season so check before you drive!
