Gonarezhou National Park

Overview

Gonarezhou National Park is a national park located in the Chiredzi District of Zimbabwe. The park was formed in 1975 and is the second largest in size after Hwange National Park, the land stretches 5,054 sq. km. As the park is located in a remote area and the landscape consists of very rough ground, it is a lesser-visited national park and maintains its untouched beauty, offering a truly wild African landscape. The vegetation of the Gonarezhou landscape consists of dense bushland and scattered baobab trees.

Gonarezhou National Park is recognized by its famed Chilojo Cliffs, large, red sandstone formations towering over the landscape below. Three rivers run through the land of the park, creating streams and pools where animals can be found congregating at. The park inhabits many animals including elephants, zebra, cheetah, leopard, hippopotami, and more. The park is known for both its wild dog and elephant populations, with more than 10,000 elephants living within the park.

Gonarezhou means 'The Place of Elephants', an apt name for a reserve that's home to almost 11,000 pachyderms
