Our Parks are looking green and lush at the moment with mushrooms and toadstools, ferns and flowers, lichens and budding new plant growth. An idyllic escape for a picnic, braai, walk or game drive.

Beautiful Calderwood Park this morning.
Gosho Park has some exciting news.
Two new cottages are currently being built adjacent to the Bush Camp. These lovely little two bedroom cottages, with en-suite bathrooms, will be the perfect little get-away into the park for visitors who are not all that keen on camping. The zebra can already be seen investigating the new facilities.
We can’t wait to show you the completed cottages.
It's Msasa season at Gosho Park, Marondera.

Beautiful late afternoon light Gosho Park.
Some translocations from Imire Game Park into our parks took place recently and all went smoothly. Gosho Park received a zebra stallion bringing in some new blood and he has been called ‘Stripes’.
We also brought some new zebra into Calderwood Park which will add to our numbers. Some blesbok were introduced into the park – the open vleis should suit them so it will be interesting to see how successful they are. A small herd of impala were released and hopefully their numbers will increase in December.
Our miombo woodlands and the open vleis and topland grazing provide good habitats and it is always exciting to get new animals to make our parks more interesting.

Bird Life Zimbabwe visit to Gosho Park 2020
Gosho Park hosted 55 members of Bird Life Zimbabwe for their AGM last weekend – some camped overnight and went birding in the early mornings to look for the miombo specials – e.g. Violet Backed Sunbird, Miombo Rock Thrush and the Spotted Creeper to name a few.
Some were lucky enough to see the lanner falcons on cigarette rock and we were all treated to a fish eagle calling during the meeting. We had a talk on ornithophily – pollination of flowers by birds and members took part in a quiz on ornithology.
In the afternoon the group visited Peterhouse to look at the sunbirds in the aloe gardens – lots of activity as the aloes were at their best. D***o Dam in Calderwood park was a bit chilly as the clouds came over but there were still some birds on the move.
Everyone wrapped up warm for the evening by the campfire but were up again early to watch animals being fed in Gosho and then another bird walk in a different habitat – a good time was had by all.
One of the members was a vet who took skin samples of the giraffes – relatively easy as they come for food every day. He used a painless dart which picks up skin samples for DNA testing. An assessment of genetic populations is being done on giraffes in Africa which will be used in their taxonomy.
