Details of Gonarezhou National Park

Boasting a dazzling array of landscapes that range from sandstone cliffs to eye-catching baobabs to forests to savannah, the park is also home to a large variety of big game including lions, hyenas, zebras, leopards, buffaloes, wild dogs, antelopes, and a huge variety of bird life.

Like Hwange, the park is also home to a large elephant population that acts as its main attraction. Some 12,000 elephants call the park and its connected parks home.

This is undoubtedly a wilder park than you’ll find elsewhere, with animals far less used to tourists than in other major parks.
