Gonarezhou safari areas are each a part of a 300.000 hectare concession that borders on the Gona Re Zhou National Park of Zimbabwe in the Southern Lowveld and adjoined to Kruger Park, the Gona Re Zhou is part of the Trans Frontier Park and is open between the Kruger Park and the Mozambique national parks, the name Gona Re Zhou means “place of many elephants” in these concession’s we hunt trophy elephant bulls and trophy buffalo bulls, the area is also good for leopard and sable.
We offer hunts in 4 different concessions in the general area of the Gonarezhou, these concessions are in my opinion the best hunting concessions in Zimbabwe. Trophy elephant bulls and trophy buffalo are taken every year in the areas with elephants in the 70, 80, 90 pounder range being a realistic expectation.
The quality of buffalo hunted in these concessions is the best in Zimbabwe with the area average being over 40 inches and a 2012 best buffalo measuring over 50 inches.
There are 4 hunting camps in the area that we offer:
- Malipati is located on the banks of the Nuanetsi River that is the boundary between Gonarezhou and the safari area, Malipati has long been known as a top hunting concession.
- Dumisa Camp/Sengwe 2 is also located on the Nuanetsi River to the South of Malipati another top concession in the southern Lowveld of Zimbabwe.
-Kwala-Kwala / Sengwe 1 is located in the Southernmost tip of Zimbabwe on the Limpopo River that is the border between Kruger Park and Zimbabwe this magnificent location allows free roaming for animals between Kruger and the hunting concession, a truly beautiful place to hunt and can be described as a part of the Kruger Park.
Naivaisha is located between Chiredzi and Mabalauta National Parks office nestled into Gonarezhou National Park and has a 33 kilometer unfenced shared boundary road with the National Park.
