Matusadona Wilderness Hiking Trail

Matusadona boasts a unique combination of pristine and rugged wilderness with the water frontage of Lake Kariba

matusadona national park walking safari


A national park in western Zimbabwe, one of the lesser known wilderness areas in Africa.

Many of the animals rescued during Operation Noah when Lake Kariba was filling (following the construction of Kariba Dam) were released into Matusadona, which now holds strong populations of most mammals occurring in the Zambezi Valley.

Buffalo are especially prominent and herds of up to 1,000-strong often congregate along the shoreline in the dry season.

Since buffalo are lions favourite meal there is also many prides of lions to be seen
