Gonarezhou National Park

For anyone who knows Zimbabwe and has visited many times before, Gonarezhou is the place that stands out as the most enchanting, pristine, and unchartered of all the Zimbabwean parks and reserves. It is located on the southeastern border of the country, sharing transfrontier borders with Mozambique and South Africa, and it is the second largest park in Zimbabwe at over 5000 square kilometres. This scenically phenomenal area is located a distance away from the safari hotspot in the north western part of the country where Hwange and Victoria Falls is located, so it remains a special and undiscovered place.

Gonarezhou means ‘elephant tusk’ in Shona, and the park is indeed a great place to see elephants. There are endangered African wild dogs and cheetahs here, as well as the more commonly seen predators: lion, leopard, and hyena. Birdlife is supreme, while the 3 major rivers contain some special fish species. The geology of Gonarezhou speaks more loudly than anywhere else with enormous, red sandstone cliffs overlooking the Rundu River, known as the Chilojo Cliffs.
