Chewore South Safari Area is one of the wildest, most remote places left in the World. Half a million acres of unfenced land, void of human inhabitants and villages, it offers the best in Big Game Hunting. Situated within the Zambezi Valley in Northern Zimbabwe, bordering the world renowned Mana Pools National Park World Heritage site, and Sapi Safari Area, it is right here that you will experience a hugely adventurous safari of a lifetime.
There is great variation within this area. The vegetation varies from the famous “Jesse bush”, which is very dense and thick, to forested and open grasslands. From the flat valley floor to mountainous surrounds, the average altitude is 500 metres. The rivers, some dry and sandy, flow year round and are plentiful. The Zambezi River is situated just to the North of the concession flowing from West to East, which is the border with Zambia. Fishing Safari’s for the infamous Tiger Fish, may also be arranged – please enquire with us for more information. Guided day trips or camping trips to Mana Pools can be arranged. We are also home to the famous Syntarsus Rhodesiensis - Dinosaur Tracks, together with a few other Dinosaur footprints, dating back to approximately 145 – 170 million years ago. These are not to be missed!
Temperatures vary depending on the season. Summer commences around August/ September and continues through until March/April. The winter months are generally warm during the day and cold during the evening, night and early morning. This is both a Tsetse fly and a Malaria area, so if you plan on hunting with us, please consult with your Doctor prior to you travel with regard to prophylactics and treatment.
