GONAREZHOU NATIONAL PARK
southeast bordering Mozambique
Gonarezhou National Park is one of the more remote national parks in the southeast bordering Mozambique. It is the second-largest national park in Zimbabwe, covering over 5000 km² and forms part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park, which incorporates parks in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Gonarezhou is where the Mwenezi River passes through to the west, the Runde River passes through its heart, and the Save River forms the western boundary, all of which help sustain the wildlife population. Gonarezhou means "the place of many elephants" and is home to over 11500 of these pachyderms, but there are also often sightings of lions, hyenas, wild dogs and giraffes within the boundaries of the park. The dry season is from May through October and is an excellent time for game viewing. The easiest way to access Gonerazhoue is by charter flight from Victoria Falls and Harare, but driving is also possible..
