Zinave National Park

Post by Ginzy » Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:13 pm

Zinave National park covers an area of 400 000 ha and is situated in the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park Conservation Area (GLTP TCFA), which is envisioned to be a gigantic geographic area covering 10 million hectares, having the GLTP with Kruger, Limpopo and Gonarezhou Parks at its core, with other large parks as Zinave and Banhine included in the system, with wildlife corridors incorporated.

Zinave, like so much of Mozambique, suffered greatly under its civil war where its ecology was devastated, but very promising progress is being made.

An excerpt from a worthwhile read:

"REINTRODUCTION OF WILDLIFE

With the purpose of focusing conservation and protection efforts within the more than 400,000 ha Park, a 6,000 ha sanctuary was erected as initial habitat for translocated wildlife, with the plan to only release animals into the larger expanse of the park once sufficient security measures have been implemented. In 2017 alone, more than 780 animals, that included impala, reedbuck, waterbuck, buffalo and elephant, were translocated into this sanctuary from conservation areas in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Wildlife translocations will increase and continue as soon as the cooler months set in again in 2018. The medium-term rewilding strategy aims to relocate over 7,000 animals to the Park over a five-year period."
