Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve is remote, unspoilt and unforgettable
Tucked into one of the most remote and untouched corners of Zimbabwe is the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve. Within this 526km2 reserve that borders Gonarezhou National Park an immense diversity of wildlife finds sanctuary. Here you can sample a taste of the real Africa.
Cheetah, lion, elephant, hippo and one of the world’s highest concentrations of endangered black rhino inhabit the wide open plains, lush forests and steep gorges that make up an astonishing number of intertwined habitats and ecosystems at Malilangwe. Joining them are over 400 species of bird so keep those binoculars trained to the sky as well as on the ground.
Our expert team consider Malilangwe, meaning ‘Call of the Leopard’, to be one of the most special reserves in Africa.
Naturally, game drives and guided walks are the highlight of any tour of Malilangwe. Make sure you stop off to see the stunning examples of rock art that has been created by San tribesmen. Some examples date back more than 2,000 years.
Among the wildlife there are more modern pleasures. You can sip sundowners around the campfire at the only lodge in the park. And as you gaze up at a spectacular blanket of stars in the night sky you can wonder out loud if tomorrow will be the day you’ll catch a glimpse of that elusive leopard.
