Gonarezhou National Park
Go off the beaten path to Zimbabwe's remote Gonarezhou National Park, literally meaning the "Place of Many Elephants" in this stunning pristine wilderness spanning over 5,000 square kilometres in a region surrounded by stunning nature and thriving wildlife. Almost off the tourism map, the region's natural and raw beauty is helped by a lack of tourism infrastructure contributing to the growing population of almost every species of land mammals.
Why Gonarezhou National Park?
Zimbabwe's second-largest national park is a wildlife paradise. Nestled on the border with Mozambique and part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park which includes South Africa's Kruger National Park and Mozambique's Gaza Province, the Gonarezhou National Park is home to the Big Five including one of the biggest populations of elephants as well as a stronghold for the endangered African wild dog. In addition, there is a healthy population of lions, leopards, cheetahs, white and black rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, zebras, giraffes, various antelope species as well as the freshwater-adapted Bull shark which thrives in the rivers.
