Abstract

The dissertation investigates the role of mobility in the interactions of people, technology, and nature in Gonarezhou National Park in southeastern Zimbabwe for the last 150 years. It concentrates on the movement of three specific actors. First, it examines the movement
of people such as state administrators, hunters or poachers, human traffickers, insurgents (ëbanditsí and nationalist guerrillas), and illegal immigrants to South Africa. Second, it explores technologies like indigenous hunting technologies, western-made guns, veterinary disease control, and indigenous and western conservation. Thirdly, it looks at the movement of nature, specifically wild animals, plants, water, minerals, and the weather.
