Chilojo Cliffs at Gonarezhou National Park
One of most spectacular features of Gonarezhou National Park, the cliffs pictured above rise 170 m (558 ft) from the south bank of the Runde River, 31 km (19 mi) from the Chipinda Pools. The cliffs consist of coarse sandstone and conglomerates arranged in a succession of horizontal beds. The cliffs are two-fold, with the lower and upper almost vertical sections separated from each other by a sloping terrace up to 500 m (1640 ft) wide. This terrace is scored by gullies which cut through the lower cliff to the Runde River bed, giving access to the water for elephants and other animals.
