Discounted lodge rates for Matopos 33 Miler

THE Matopo National Park is set to enhance its reputation as a sports tourism hub after partnering organisers of the PPC Matopos 33-Miler to offer discounted rates of accommodation for athletes.

Matopo National Park tourism manager, Emison Magodhi revealed they are offering a 20 percent discount to registered athletes at the newly refurbished Maleme Lodge. Magodhi said they are also offering accommodation as prizes for various categories.

“Zimparks  and PPC have enhanced their collaborative partnership in this year’s 33-Miler Ultra Marathon by offering discounted accommodation at Matopo National Park — Maleme Lodge for interested registered participants and their family members before, during and after the marathon. Those that will have an opportunity to stay at Maleme Lodge for the event will experience the comfort of some of the recently refurbished accommodation units to meet international standards.

“Zimparks has also availed accommodation vouchers that will go to winners in certain categories of the marathon. The winners will be offered the options to choose their park of interest to visit and stay. This partnership enhances sport tourism in the parks and Zimbabwe at large. Matopo National Park will also field a running team (Team Rhino) in support of the partnership,” he said.

The flagship race of the PPC Matopos 33-Miler kicks off right in the heart of the Matopo National Park. The Park has become a hub for sport tourism as it also plays host to other events such as the Matobo Heritage Mountain Bike Challenge.

“The Matopos Heritage Challenge was held from 20 to 24 March and encompassed three days of superb mountain bike riding crossing the Matobo Hills World Heritage Site from west to east, south to north, and lowest to highest points. It included exclusive permission to ride in the Matobo Game Park, home to Zimbabwe’s most significant rhino herd, as well as riding through numerous rural areas and private farms, all within the Matobo Hills,” said Magodhi.

The Matopos 33-Miler was first run in 1963, along much the same route as being used today, and is the only ultra-marathon in Zimbabwe. The race starts in the magnificent Matobo National Park, in the heart of the Matobo Hills World Heritage Site.

Zimparks guns down hippo in Nyanyadzi

August 31, 2017August 31, 2017
Inset from Zimpapers. THE Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority last week shot dead a hippopotamus that was damaging winter wheat in Nyanyadzi. The hippo, which had a calf, is believed to have escaped from Save Conservancy. ZPWMA ordered the shooting of the hippos after traditional leaders in the area reported that it was damaging crops and endangering lives. ZPWMA officer, Mr John Danfa, said they were still hunting for the calf which is believed to have found habitat along Save River. “Usually hippos move up and down rivers during the rainy season. We believe the two escaped from Save Valley Conservancy. They were both females and they do not usually click if there is no male. “They are believed to have separated. We received reports from traditional leaders in Hot Springs and Nyanyadzi that these hippos were feeding on wheat and crops in their fields.” “People’s lives were endangered so the authorities ordered its killing. The first time we attempted to kill it, it was in the company of so many cattle and could not do anything. Our officer teamed up with villagers to track it until last week when it was shot down in Nyanyadzi”. The officer is said to have fired 12 shots before the hippo died. The meat was shared by villagers. One of the villagers in Dirikwe village, Mr Tapiwa Munyati, said: “This hippo was becoming a threat to human lives in the area. It was being spotted near homes at night. “There are vegetable gardens along one of Save River’s tributaries where it was being spotted.“We were told that hippos do not like light and the danger was that lives would have been lost.” “A villager survived death by a whisker recently when the hippo strayed into his homestead.“He went out of his house to investigate when his dogs were barking. He had a torch and the hippo advanced towards him. “Fortunately he managed to escape the attack and notified other villagers and the village head. We are appealing to the responsible authorities to make sure that the remaining one is also killed,” said Mr Munyati.
