Antelope Park – Day 1
Antelope Park. Home to the African Lion Environmental Research Trust (ALERT) and the world’s first Lion Rehabilitation & Release into the Wild programme. We are promised that our stay at Antelope Park will not only leave us with memories that will last a lifetime, but also with the knowledge that we have personally helped contribute to the survival of the African Lion. So there.
Here’s a quick video description of what ALERT does and how it’s not just a tourist thing but integrated into the fabric of Africa, Zimbabwe and the local community;
Nestled in the heart of the Zimbabwean Highveld is Antelope Park, residing eight kilometres south-west of Gweru- the third-largest city in Zimbabwe. This stunning example of open Zimbabwean bushveld was the winner of the World Travel Award for Zimbabwe’s number one private game reserve in 2018, 2017 and 2016. It is also the home of ALERT and many of our various projects, which include the lion rehabilitation and release programme and numerous community projects.
