Matusadona National Park, a place to visit.

Matusadona National Park is situated on the southern shores of Lake Kariba and is one of Zimbabwe’s less-visited parks.

137,000 hectares in area, it is bounded on the west by the Ume River and on the east by the Sanyati River. The park takes its name from the local Matuzviadonha Hills and is a stunning combination of flat plains and rugged mountain country.

The meaning of ‘Matuzviadonha’ is ‘falling dung’ — which was probably a comment on the sight of elephant dropping dung balls as they struggled up the hills.


It is home to black rhino and is commonly recognised as having the second largest concentration of lion in Africa after the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania.

The Matusadona shoreline on Lake Kariba invites water based activities, usually from game viewing boats or pontoons.
