Gonarezhou National Park, Zimbabwe

“Gonarezhou” - “Place of many Elephants”.

And many elephants can bee seen in the Gonarezhou National Park which is situated in the south eastern lowveld of Zimbabwe. Three major rivers – The Save, Runde and Mwenezi – cut their courses through the Park, forming pools and natural oases from which hundreds of species of birds, wildlife and fish gather to feed and drink.


We were warmly welcome at Chilo Gorge/Zimbabwe

They drive our favourite car - for good reasons.

Toyota landcruiser + good driver = You never get stuck!
