What to See & Do

The Save Valley Conservancy (pronounced Sah-vey) is filled with hundreds of black and white rhinos, thousands of elephants (relocated from Gonarezhou National Park) as well as a healthy population of wild dog, buffalo, giraffe, lion, eland, zebra and wildebeest. Birdlife in the area is prolific with over 400 species recorded, including Red Lark and Yellow-billed Oxpecker. Converted from unproductive farmland in the 1920s, the Save Valley Conservancy is now an important wildlife sanctuary and home to an intensive rhino protection program as well as a multi species research centre.

The Save Valley Conservancy helps to support local communities by supplying them with jobs, allowing them to sell their arts and crafts as well as improving and upgrading the Save Valley area.

Travelling to this area is fine all year round. The summer months are between October and April and the winter months are between May and September. The summer days are hot, reaching 30ºC, with afternoon thunderstorms. The winter days are cooler and drier with temperatures below freezing point at night.
