Chizarira National Park
Chizarira is located on top of the Zambezi escarpment in the north western area of Zimbabwe. It overlooks the Zambezi valley and the upper waters of lake Kariba. Chizarira is a remote and rugged area of magnificent gorges, plateaus and flood plains.
Over time, the Mcheni and Lwizikululu rivers have eroded almost sheer crevasses which fall 600 m towards the Zambezi River valley offering magnificent views of lake kariba. According to legend, the Tundazi mountain at the parkís northeastern boundary is home to an enormous serpent.
Chizarira takes its name from the word chijalila, meaning great barrier in the local Tonga dialect. The range of mountains which are part of the Zambezi Escarpment form the Parkís western border and offer challenging hiking and spectacular views of the valley below.
