Gonarezhou: True wilderness & solitude in one of Africa’s last great places

A Google search of Gonarezhou comes up with two immediate themes, both a little intimidating. 

“Gonarezhou is one of the wildest parks in Africa and the elephants are to be avoided!!”

This is exactly what we were looking for, and off we went.

Brett’s 2015 trip to Gonarezhou National Park revealed the true majesty of wild Africa, and it is a trip he has never forgotten. This blog, written when he returned at the time, has been unpublished on the website until now, but here it is along with candid snapshots of the journey, making for some great reading and destination research for the adventurers out there!

BHS beaded bracelets for a good cause

Past guests of Brett Horley Safaris will know our safari packs have always included beautiful beaded bracelets, which were produced in collaboration with Relate. Those bracelets were in support of a variety of causes for wildlife, healthcare, education, and helped to generate employment and income opportunities in local communities – something we firmly believe is key to conservation and ecotourism. Now, we’re very excited to be able to offer our own BHS beaded bracelets for a good cause, which we have produced in partnership with Nourish nonprofit organisation – a local charity based on the outskirts of the Greater Kruger National Park.

Responsible cultural tourism opportunities

Nourish is focused on connecting communities to conservation through education, agriculture, and tourism. We at Brett Horley Safaris share the belief that local communities bordering the greater Kruger National Park should benefit from tourism and income generated from tourism in the area. We also believe that the local, indigenous culture should be celebrated and showcased. After all, so much of what makes South Africa special is not only in its landscapes and wildlife, but also in its people.
