Description [ correction ]

A rugged and mountainous Safari Area in the extreme north of Zimbabwe (east of Mana Pools and Sapi). Part of the World Heritage Site and including the Mupata Gorge on the Zambezi River. Downstream of Lake Kariba and Chirundu and on the southern (Zimbabwean) side of the great Zambezi river, lies a vast wilderness complex that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its outstanding natural beauty and its magnificent ecological and cultural qualities. Three separate state-protected areas together make up this huge wilderness complex and front onto the Zambezi River: Mana Pools National Park and its downstream neighbors, the Sapi and Chewore Safari Areas. Wildlife populations and wilderness landscapes here are second to none in Africa. Healthy populations of many large Africa mammals are present, except for giraffe and wildebeest (which are not found anywhere in the Zambezi valley), and the black rhinoceros which is endangered and now restricted to a few specially protected areas like the Matusadona and Hwange National Parks.
