Bordering Mozambique in the southeastern lowveld of Zimbabwe, Gonarezhou, meaning ‘place of elephants’, is Zimbabwe’s second-largest national park. It has striking red Chilojo cliffs as a back drop, winding river beds that are either flowing or dry, and is more remote so you often feel as if you have the place to yourself. Game can be exceptional here but with the lovely views from the lodge you might also fancy a bit of chill time at the lodge enjoying the scenery. The park is home to over 10,000 elephants and highlights include four of Africa’s Big Five, viewing the beautiful Chilojo Cliffs towering over the scenic Runde River valley, bird watching and game viewing.
