With an area of over 3,000 square miles, Gonarezhou is Zimbabwe’s second largest National Park, but it is seldom visited due to its location in the far southeast of the country, away from the usual tourist routes. The park is part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park that crosses the border into Mozambique and South Africa and includes the greater Kruger National Park. Its landscape is crisscrossed by rivers lined with dramatic red sandstone cliffs and dotted with baobab trees and thousands of grazing elephants. Lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, hippos, and giraffes also roam this pristine wilderness. The area is also home to several welcoming Shangaan villages that offer cultural enrichment activities.

Chilo Gorge Lodge consists of 10 spacious thatched suites perched along a cliff with dramatic views of the Save River. It’s the most luxurious accommodation and the best base to explore this remote park. However, we recommend splitting your stay at the lodge with either Chilo Gorge Tented Camp or the Ivory Trail adventure, a multi-day walking safari. It will allow you to get even closer to this wild place.
