Gonarezhou National Park (GNP), home to about 11 000 elephants, the Gonarezhou truly deserves its vernacular name as ‘Place of Elephants’. Located in Zimbabwe’s South-East Lowveld, Gonarezhou covers just more than 5 000 km² of some of the most spectacular scenery in the region incorporating the iconic Chilojo Cliffs, wide meandering rivers and extensive woodlands.

Gonarezhou National Park is the second largest national park in Zimbabwe. Widely known for its unique wilderness character, the Park’s reputation as a premier destination for quality wildlife sightings is also growing.

The Park forms an integral part of one of the largest conservation areas in the world – the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park (GLTP – established in 2002), which joins some of the most iconic national parks of Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa in a conservation area covering some 35,000 km². GNP also plays an important part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area (GLTFCA) which incorporates national parks, private land and concessions, and communal areas in all three countries, spanning around 100,000 km².

The Park offers a variety of accommodation options, from remote wilderness campsites with no facilities, to the comfort of the chalets like Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge.
