Gonare Zhou National Park

Gonarezhou is a unique and special place of varied and scenic, rugged beauty and contains hidden secrets for those who know where to look. The ethos of the Park’s tourism is to tread as softly on this landscape as possible, whilst fully immersing oneself in the experience of being in this vast, wild space

Accommodation

The Park offers a variety of accommodation options, from remote wilderness campsites with no facilities to the comfort of the chalets at Swimuwini.

The main focus however remains on immersing oneself in the experience of being in nature through camping.  The three developed campsites, (Chipinda Pools, Chinguli and Mabalauta), have multiple sites at one spot with running water, a braai place, and access to shared ablution blocks with hot water and flushing toilets available.  The exclusive camping sites are the traditional bush experience where you camp in complete privacy, with just a ‘Blair’ toilet and braai area.  You are responsible for providing your own water and to be fully self-sufficient.  There are also a limited number of wilderness campsites in the Park. These sites shift annually depending on the availability of water in the pans in the central area of Gonarezhou where these sites are located.  There are no facilities at these sites, and visitors to these sites need to be aware that they are to leave no trace of their visit on their departure.

The chalets at Swimuwini have recently been refurbished, and offer visitors  a somewhat more comfortable park experience.  Chalets are equipped with solar geysers, lights, fridge/freezers and fully-equipped kitchens.  Cooking takes place on gas stoves or in the portable braai’s available at every unit.

The tented camp at Chipinda Pools is well established and very popular.  Tents are fully furnished, and have a small en-suite bathroom.  Secure kitchen units have a small gas stove and portable fridge/freezer.  As with Swimuwini, all power is solar, and solar geysers supply hot water.

Activities

The main activities on offer in the park include game viewing from vehicles and limited walking.   Some of the main roads in the Park, such as those around Mabalauta and the track down to the Chilojo Cliffs are accessible for 2 x 4 vehicles, but, for travellers who want to venture a bit further off the beaten path a 4 x 4 vehicle is a requirement.  Fishing is available for overnight visitors at specifically designated campsites along the Runde and Mwenezi rivers.

Matobo National Park

The Matobo National Park forms the core of the Matobo or Matopos Hills, an area of granite kopjes and wooded valleys commencing some 35 kilometers south of Bulawayo.
The Hills have formed over 2,000 million years ago with molten rock erupting across the landscape — this has eroded to produce smooth ‘whaleback dwalas’ and broken kopjes, strewn with boulders and interspersed with thickets of vegetation..

*This package trip requires any number of people.

*Can be customized upon request, to meet travelers needs

*Hotel/Lodge Best accommodation (upgrades on request)

*Meals = (B) Breakfast

‍The Hills cover an area of about 3,100 km², of which 424 km² is National Park, the remainder being largely communal land and a small proportion of commercial farmland. Part of the national park is set aside as a 100 km² game park, which has been stocked with game including black and white rhinoceros.
The area exhibits a profusion of distinctive rock landforms rising above the granite shield that covers much of Zimbabwe. The large boulders provide abundant natural shelters and have been associated with human occupation from the early Stone Age right through to early historical times, and intermittently since. They also feature an outstanding collection of rock paintings.
The Matobo Hills continue to provide a strong focus for the local community, which still uses shrines and sacred places closely linked to traditional, social and economic activities.
The Matobo balancing rocks are the burial place of Cecil John Rhodes. Commanding a vista clear to the horizon, the name ‘World’s View’, could not be more appropriate for this enchanting piece of Zimbabwe.
Local excursions
Game drives and walking safaris can be enjoyed around the nearby Matopos National Park, as well as rhino tracking excursions by vehicle or on foot led by experienced and knowledgeable guides. You can also explore the area’s ancient rock art and discover the rocks that the San People saw as spiritually significant on guided tours, or trek to the grave of Cecil Rhodes, who served as Prime Minister of the Cape Colony in the late 19th century.
