Beautiful wildlife haven
Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve is a beautiful haven for wildlife large and small set on 124,000 acres of wilderness in the southern corner of the country bordering Gonarezhou National Park. It is a spectacularly diverse and beautiful part of Africa with huge diversity in its landscapes, habitats and wildlife. Visitors who venture this remotely are rewarded with awesome landscapes like rocky sandstone outcrops, mopane forests and majestic baobab trees plus over 400 species of birds, black rhino, white rhino and of course the big five. Wild Dog are present too, breeding in caves in the sandstone hills and nyala are regularly seen in the riverine forest along the banks of the Chiredzi River. Herds of up to 500 buffalo drink from the river before moving eastwards to feed on rich grazing basalt flats. Lions, hyenas and the elusive leopard keep the herbivore populations in check including the little six– six species of small beautiful antelope – klipspringer, Sharpe’s grysbok, grey duiker, rare Livingstone’s suni and oribi.
