Elephant's Eye in Hwange, Zimbabwe, is in the process of constructing a brand new entrance gate between Hwange National Park and the concession adjoining it. The gate will be named Matoa Gate and will provide convenient access to the national park for guests traveling from lodges in the concession near Dete. Park fees will also be collected at the gate, therefore monitoring visitors to the park. The gate is expected to shorten traveling time by approximately 25min.
The gate will also provide easy access to Matoa Ruins. “It also offers easier access to the Matoa Ruins, which are somewhat a highlight in Hwange National Park, even though not often visited. However, interesting and intriguing stories can be told by experienced guides from this area. For our lodge (Elephant’s Eye) it is a game-changer,” says Katja Quasdorf,the CEO and Director of Hideaways.
It is anticipated that the gate will be completed by October. The gate is expected to shorten traveling time by approximately 25min.
