Whilst on a location recce for future film and television productions in Matusadona National Park on the shores of Lake Kariba, I had the opportunity to film some amazing elephant behaviour. Elephants have such an intuitive way of interacting with their environment. The behaviour of the gentle giants as they play around in the mud and water. Matusadona National Park is situated on the shores of Lake Kariba but was proclaimed a non-hunting area on 7 November 1958 before the dam was built. It became a Game Reserve in 1963, and in 1975, in terms of the Parks & Wildlife Act, it became a National Park. The Park comprises some 1 400 square kilometers of diverse flora and fauna. Before the lake was built, Matusadona was a vast, rugged wilderness with limited access. With the lake came ecological changes. One in particular, the lakeshore contributed greatly to the increase of large mammal populations in the area, especially elephant and buffalo.

One of the most stunning locations in the Southern African Region, Mana Pools National Parks has been a mecca for wildlife filmmakers and photographers from around the world. I loved filming these animals & getting to film a lion kill in the wild at night was an amazing pleasure and an experience that I will never forget. UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site ,Mana Pools National Park is synonymous with the Zambezi River, elephants, lions, remoteness and wilderness.

This unique park is a WORLD HERITAGE SITE.Mana Pools is one of Zimbabwe's most popular parks, and it is easy to see why it falls into this profile. The name "Mana'' means "four" in the local Shona language. This applies to the four large pools inland from the Zambezi River. These pools are the remnant ox-bow lakes that the Zambezi River carved out thousands of years ago as it changed its course northwards.

The dream of trying to make wildlife conservation and management work in Zimbabwe has been the pursuit of many people, but they do not succeed in reaching their goal. This is the story Robin & Kathy Mackintosh creating that vision in the middle of an unstable climate of Zimbabwe during the tourism boom of the early 90's and the political instability of the early 2000's .

This short story is off my adventure trip to gonarezhou national park, zimbabwe. Gonarezhou National Park is a national park located in south-eastern Zimbabwe. It is situated in a relatively remote corner of Masvingo Province, south of Chimanimani along the Mozambique border. Owing to its vast size, rugged terrain and its location away from main tourist routes, large tracts of Gonarezhou remain as pristine wilderness. Gonarezhou is a Shona name meaning "Place of many Elephants." It forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a peace park that links Gonarezhou with the Kruger National Park in South Africa and the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique.
