Upon arrival in Harare, you will be met and directed to your internal flight southeast to Gonarezhou National Park.

Gonarezhou is a little-visited but stunning park of 5,000 square kilometres, dominated by the 13-kilometre-long Chilojo Cliffs. It is dotted by only a handful of safari camps that get to explore one of the last true wildernesses left in Africa. Some of the last big tuskers still roam this ancient land along with lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, hyenas, buffalos, hippos and giraffes.

You are staying at Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge for the next 5 nights on a full board and activities basis. The lodge's 10 chalets occupy an elevated position, affording views of the Save River below and the surrounding landscape.
