About Gonarezhou National Park

In south-eastern Zimbabwe, Gonarezhou National Park is located in the Masvingo Province. Enveloping an area of 1950.974 square miles, Gonarezhou National Park is the 2nd largest National Park of Zimbabwe. Besides, it is also one of the faraway places to visit in Zimbabwe. Owing to its remoteness, it has been left untouched by tourists. In 1936, it was declared as a Protected Area and was given the title of a National Park in 1975.

This huge park borders Mozambique's Limpopo National Park and South Africa's Kruger National Park to make up a vast wilderness area: The Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. Due to heavy poaching, wildlife densities have historically been very low, but there has been a marked increase in populations over the last few years.

Best time to visit

June to October, in the Dry season, is the best time for viewing wildlife in Gonarezhou National Park. Spotting animals is easier in these months because wildlife gathers around water sources and the vegetation has thinned out. During the Wet season (November to April), access to certain parts of the park is restricted.


Gonarezhou is a great park to see some of the more unusual antelope species, including the shy nyala antelope and the tiny suni. The magnificent roan and sable antelope can also be seen. The incredibly rare king cheetah is believed to occur in the park although it isn’t clear when they were last spotted.
