Gonarezhou Safari Areas Sengwe 1 and 2 in the South Eastern Lowveld of Zimbabwe

The Gonarezhou Safari areas Sengwe 1 and 2 are hunting areas that are open and un-fenced areas adjoined to the Gonarezhou National and the Kruger National Park plus the Mozambique National Park, these are massive areas made up of different hunting blocks that form part of the Sengwe 1 and 2 Hunting concessions.

  • The Sengwe 1 and 2 TTL (Tribal Trust Land) hunting areas include Crooks Corner on the Zimbabwean side that is within in our concession and is a real hot spot for dagga boys and trophy elephant bulls. Sengwe is well known for top trophy quality elephant and buffalo plus hippo and crocodile that are also available plus the occasional eland and kudu bulls that are found in the Sengwe concessions although the real strength of the Sengwe areas is big game. There are people living in and around the Sengwe areas in a low population density scenario as there always has been since the days that Hemmingway and Bvenkye Barnard hunted here.

SENGWE 1 AND 2:

Sengwe 2 starts at the Sango border post (Zimbabwe/Mozambique) where the Sengwe 2 corridor begins that connects the Gonarezhou National Park and the Kruger National Park forming the Transfrontier National Park, this is a vital channel for elephant and buffalo migration between the national parks, this corridor is within the hunting area, Sengwe 2 continues right down to the Limpopo River that is the International boundary between Zimbabwe and South Africa, this is our open and unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park that starts at the Mozambique/RSA/Zim border and extends back into our Sengwe 1 boundary starting point at the Bubye River that flows into the Limpopo River. Sengwe 1 and 2 merge halfway between the Bubye River and Crooks corner boundary along the Limpopo River.
