SPLENDID VIEWS OVER THE COUNTRYSIDE

From here to serenity, you think as you survey majestic elephants cruising slowly across the endless bush. But on safari in Chilo Gorge you’ll find life is also wild.

The wildlife of Chilo Gorge is not used to the click of camera shutters and the whirr of motor drives. Here people are amongst the rarest of creatures and big game abounds. The largest – elephants – number over eight thousand. Huge buffalo are also plentiful, especially round watering holes. Big cats prowl through the red sandstone and thorny scrub on the trail of painted impala, whilst hippos gape impressively as they take cooling mud baths.

Talking of which; after following the wildlife it’s a refreshing experience to plunge into Chilo’s swimming pool and emulate the local hippos. Or have a sundowner before a hearty dinner and then swap safari stories around the campfire. More great reasons for putting Chilo Gorge on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Zimbabwe.

Journalist Lisa Grainger visited Chilo Gorge with The Ultimate Travel Company and wrote about her experience for the Sunday Express, Zimbabwe’s Wild Ways.
