Gonarezhou (National Park)

In the Shona language, Gona-re-zhou means “place of elephants” and in 1967 - the same year the park was created - an elephant was killed on its perimeter with tusks weighing 166 pounds and 129 pounds (62kg and 48kg). He was the offspring of another equally fated elephant named 'Dhlulamithi' (taller than trees), whom the infamous poacher Stephanus Barnard, shot in the 1920’s and whose tusks weighed over 296 pounds (110kg).
