The Gonarezhou National Park, situated in the south-east corner of Zimbabwe, covers an area over 5000km². Bordering Mozambique, this vast wilderness is characterised by a stunning and rugged landscape, sweeping rivers and an assortment of exciting wildlife.
Gonarezhou forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a massive Pan-African park which situates itself as a ‘peace park’, dedicated to conservation, economic development of local communities and biodiversity.
True to its name, which means ‘place of many elephants’, Gonarezhou is famous for its elephant, who roam the park uninhibited. The three major rivers which cut through the park – The Save, Mwenezi and Runde – form oases and natural pools from which hundreds of species of wildlife and birds gather their sustenance. Buffalo, hippo, giraffe, lion, leopard and cheetah can all be spotted within the park, providing visitors with unique game-viewing prospects. Historically, the park has also been a habitat for the endangered African Wild Dog, which can be seen on the odd occasion.
