Safari Lodges That Help Uncover The Beauty And Wilds Of The Gonarezhou National Park
Gonarezhou (pronounced; Gona-Re-Zhou), the "Place of Elephant" is Zimbabwe's second-largest national park after Hwange, the park located in the southeastern region of Zimbabwe is largely in pristine condition, untouched by human hands. Not the most popular Zimbabwe safari destination by any stretch of the imagination, but this is due to its remote location and not due to the lack of wildlife and birdlife.
A birders paradise, 492 species have been spotted in the region, and summer is the best time for birding. In terms of wildlife, 89 species of mammal including; Elephant, impala, kudu, buffalo, zebra, nyala, wildebeest, eland and giraffe to mention only but a few. But what truly sets the Gonarezhou region apart is the scenery, the river networks and the Chilojo Cliffs.
What makes this region of Zimbabwe special is that relatively few tourists visit this iconic wilderness area.
There are a variety of lodges in the Gonarezhou National Park, all of which cater to different needs and budgets. From the utmost in luxury and service (the two Singita properties) through to the more classic safari lodge options.
Gonarezhou National Park now forms part of the 'Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park' that includes the Kruger National Park and the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique.
Our collection at the moment of Zimbabwe lodges and camps in and around Gonarezhou is currently small, over the next few years, more and more accommodation options will come online.
