Gonarezhou National Park is situated in southeastern Zimbabwe and covers more than 2000 square miles. "Gonarezhou", meaning "Place of many Elephants," is a beautiful park full of rugged and scenic landscapes extending across a vast area of baobab-dotted scrubland and pale orange sandstone cliffs. As its name implies, Gonarezhou is famous for its elephants, and many of the largest-tusked elephants in the region may be found within the park. The park is also home to 4 of Africa’s Big 5 – leopard, lion, buffalo, and elephant in addition to many other animal and bird species.

The Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve comprises 130,000 acres of private and beautiful wilderness area bordering Gonarezhou National Park and is the home of Singita Pamushana, the most luxurious accommodation in Zimbabwe. Malilangwe Reserve is teeming with birds and wildlife, including rare and endangered species such as the black rhino and the roan and sable antelope. The area is famous for its cathedral mopane forests, majestic ‘upside-down’ baobab trees, and over 100 rock art sites that date back more than 2,000 years.
