“The Place of Elephants” is a hidden gem. It is relatively unknown, though it is easily accessible by tarred roads. The last couple of years it is receiving more attention mainly because of the re-opening of the Chilo Gorge Lodge. Gonarezhou is a vast National Park which is crossed by the Save, Runde and Mwenezi rivers. Superb wildlife in typical riverine bush.
Some local visitors go there for one reason only: to have a sun-downer at the foot of the Chilo cliffs; it is a breath-taking experience.
