The Gonarezhou Safari Areas we offer are well known safari areas that have proven themselves as the number 1 destination in Africa to hunt for trophy buffalo bulls and trophy elephant bulls. Ideally situated between the Kruger National Park, The Gonarezhou National Park and the Mozambique National Park the Gonarezhou Safari areas are safari industry leading concessions producing the best of the best trophy quality. Apart from elephant and buffalo we have leopard, hippo and crocodile on quota here and of course plains game.
The Gonarezhou Safari Area is made up of the Sengwe 1 and Sengwe 2 safari areas well as the Naivaisha safari area. They are situated in the South Eastern Lowveld of Zimbabwe adjoined and un-fenced to the National Parks.
This is wild Africa at its best and we have the highest pound average on elephant ivory in Africa. We shoot the biggest wild buffalo shot in Africa today; these are the facts.
Our 3 hunting camps are evenly set apart on our 300,000 plus hectare concessions. The Sengwe 2 hunting camp is located on the Mwenezi River. The Sengwe 1 hunting camp is located on the Limpopo River. Naivaisha Hunting camp 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.
The camps are to the South and South East of the Gonarezhou National Park as illustrated on the below map.
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.
The quality of buffalo hunted in these concessions is the best in Zimbabwe with the area average being over 42 inches and a 2012 best buffalo measuring over 50 inches.
The location of our concessions adjoined to the National Parks in the Trans Frontier Park environment make us ideally placed for these parks to act as feeder parks to our concessions. The abundance of game in our locality make our concessions a hunter’s paradise.
There is a National Parks runway close to the camp making logistics no problem in terms of hunting with us. JWK Safaris also offer road transfers from Harare to our concessions and we will meet you and welcome you in either of these scenarios.
