Animals & Birds

Gonarezhou National Park is home to over 140 mammal species, including the Big 5. Gonarezhou means "place of the elephants" you can find these here with astounding abundance.

Of the rarer mammals to occur in Zimbabwe, look for the wild dog, bat-eared fox, pangolin and nyala.

In the southeast section of the park, Tambohata Pan offers an incredible array of water birds during the wet season.

 

Notable Facts

Gonarezhou offers a unique experience in Zimbabwe game parks as it rests outside the Zambezi basin, making it hotter and drier (with unpredictable rain). Gona-re-zhou is a definite choice for those wanting a more wild experience.
