Last Chance Safaris is excited to announce the departure of its inaugural Gonarezhou Expedition to a bastion of Rhino and Elephant conservation in Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park.
A land dominated by Africa’s two giants, the Elephant and the Baobab, Gonarezhou translates from the Shona language as ‘horn of elephant’. A fitting name considering the efforts put in to save both Rhino and Elephant in this remote wilderness. In partnership with the Frankfurt Zoological Society, The Gonarezhou Conservation Trust manages the national park with a model that epitomises every fibre of modern conservation thinking and mirrors the ethos that drives the design of Last Chance Safaris’ expeditions.
Last Chance Safaris will embark on its inaugural expedition to Gonarezhou in June 2023 to search for Africa’s two most celebrated pachyderms and at the same time explore one of the continent’s best kept wilderness secrets. Track Black Rhino on foot; sleep out on a moonlit platform above ghostly processions of elephants; explore the enigmatic Chilojo Cliffs and discover its wild riches, and languish in the luxury of a safari camp on one of the largest private game reserves in Africa. Phil Zappala, a dedicated and enthusiastic conservation gladiator, whose safari career has taken him across central and east Africa, will lead the expedition.
