GONAREZHOU NATIONAL PARK


pristine wilderness

Located in south eastern Zimbabwe, Gonarezhou National Park is situated in a relatively remote corner along the Mozambique border. Owing to its vast size, rugged terrain and location away from the main tourist routes, giving it much appeal to many safari-goers looking for a less visited and perhaps less known destination, large tracts of Gonarezhou remain as pristine wilderness. Created in 1975, and meaning “Place of many Elephants”, it is a wonderfully scenic place full of rugged and beautiful landscapes. One of the most prominent and enduring natural features of the park is the beautiful Chilojo Cliffs, magnificent red sandstone cliffs that have been formed through millions of years of erosion. At over 5,000 square kilometres, Gonarezhou is Zimbabwe’s second largest game reserve. It forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a peace park dedicated to conservation, allowing animals to move freely between Gonarezhou, the Kruger National Park in South Africa and the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique.
