Mountain holiday in Zimbabwe, Africa
  • The Chimanimani National Park is at the most southern point of the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe, 75km south of Mutare, on the border with Mozambique.

  • Renowned for its rugged grandeur with deeply dissected gorges, magnificent waterfalls and spectacular peaks.

  • The Park consists of mainly mountain vegetation with open grassland and woodlands.

  • Mt Binga (2,437m) is the highest point of the Chimanimani Range.

  • Layered rock formations offer a unique alternative to the rounded domes commonly found in other parts of Zimbabwe.

  • Orchids and hibiscus grow on the tangled slopes, and lobelia heather and many species of meadowland wild flowers carpet the intermittent savanna plains. 

  • Few signs of human influence and only accessible by foot.

  • Hiking destination bar none and authentic camping experience in the bush.

  • Wildlife spotting opportunities for eland, bushbuck, sable, klipspringer and blue duiker, as well as an abundance of birdlife and trout in the clear mountain streams.

  • A formidable stone wall sits at the heart of the Park opposite the Chimanimani Village.

  • Tessa’s Pool is a classic natural swimming hole, now complete with a rope swing and barbeque facilities. 

  • The dry winter season is usually cool and sunny providing perfect walking weather, although temperatures can drop at night.

  • In the hot and wet summer season the area can be prone to cloud conditions, sudden storms and mists, but these quickly clear.
