Matusadonha Park- Showpiece of Kariba
Matusadona - boasts a unique combination of remote and rugged wilderness with the water frontage of Lake Kariba
- recognized as having the second largest concentration of wild lions in Africa
Torpedo grass - fodder for wild animals
The drawdown zone between high and low water is covered with a dense growth of torpedo grass (panicum repens) around much of the Matusadona shoreline. In certain areas e.g. west of Fothergill Island, this grass forms extensive swards on which a large variety of mammals can be seen.
The grasslands provide vital reserves of grazing for elephant, buffalo, hippo, impala, waterbuck and zebra.
The expansion of the Matusadona's buffalo population has been attributed to the large quantity of fodder provided by these grasslands.
