Nyanga is situated in one of the most scenic areas of Zimbabwe’s Eastern Highlands. Rolling green hills and perennial rivers transverse the 47000-hectare park. Altitudes between 1800 and 2593 metres provide cool weather and fresh mountain air perfect for rest and relaxation. With its stunning mountainous views, numerous waterfalls, varied activities and unique flora and fauna.

Nyanga National Park has an impressive collection of break-taking attractions. It’s the one park with a good dose of everything, mountainous terrains to inspire the hiker, wildlife for all enthusiasts, stunning waterfalls for our appreciation and a relaxing environment for the right holiday experience.

Hikers and birders are drawn to this area, and fishing is a big pull for many, with rainbow and brown trout in the many rivers, streams and reservoirs. There is a variety of animals in the national park, including blue duiker and samango monkeys, but it is sparsely distributed and hard to spot. You are most likely to spot klipspringer, reedbuck, wildebeest, zebra, bushbuck and kudu, notwithstanding imaginative reports of sightings of lion and buffalo, which do not actually occur in the area.

Many of the dams and lakes in the Nyanga area are famous for their good trout and bass fishing and it is also an excellent area for golf, horse riding and mountain hikes as well as birding, rock climbing and abseiling
