Investing in Zimbabwe’s future


 

SUMMARY: Nearly 11,000 African elephants live and thrive in southeast Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park, justifying its name which translates to “Place of Elephants.” The park connects to South Africa’s world-famous Kruger National Park via the Sengwe Wildlife Corridor, a narrow strip in Masvingo Province, Zimbabwe that allows for the free movement of elephants and other wildlife between the two parks. Tragically, for more than forty years, anti-personnel landmines in the Sengwe Wildlife Corridor have killed and maimed both people and wildlife, hindered conservation efforts, and slowed the development of Zimbabwe’s ecotourism industry.
