 Chimanimani

Sitting right on the border with Mozambique, Chimanimani, Zimbabwe, is a mountainous region and is a little off the beaten path for most international travelers. This is a great shame, as it is an incredibly beautiful area and is not hard to get to by public transport. Chimanimani Mountains National Park is just an eighteen-kilometer drive and features many hiking trails. Nearer the village center, there are shorter trails leading to sights such as the fifty-meter Bridal Veil Falls, through the Chimanimani Eland Sanctuary. If you're not up for some strenuous hiking, just strolling around the friendly village and into the surrounding forest will bring rewards. The bird life is prolific here.

Chimanimani is a small village of a little more than one thousand five hundred people, four hundred kilometers southwest of Harare and can also be reached by public transport from Masvingo, two hundred fifty kilometers to the west or Mutare, one hundred forty kilometers north. It's a sleepy place surrounded by natural beauty. Overnight hikes can be arranged through your Chimanimani, Zimbabwe hostel, who can recommend good guides. You might be rewarded with sightings of eland, bushbuck, and blue duiker.

Although Chimanimani is small, there are some good accommodation options. Budget travelers will find Chimanimani, Zimbabwe hostel accommodation here also. There are a couple of places that have hostel-style dorm beds and all the accommodation offers food too. Chimanimani, Zimbabwe hostels are excellent places to get information for your walking and hiking in the mountains, particularly if you want to take a multi-day trip. They know the good, reliable guides and can recommend which trails to take based on your fitness levels.
