Visit Eastern Highlands

Also known as the Manica Highlands, Zimbabwe’s Eastern Highlands run for some 300kms and separate Zimbabwe from neighbouring Mozambique. Easily accessible via a half-day drive from Harare, they are the natural starting point for adventurous travellers who are looking to explore some of the more remote corners of the country. 

The scenery here is very dramatic and the emphasis of visits here is to get out and about and explore this wonderful and varied area. Hiking, biking, fishing, golf, birdwatching and seeing primates are all on the cards here, so it is a great area for those who are doing longer trips through Zimbabwe and want to ensure their trips aren’t purely big game viewing focused.

Accommodation is limited, but there are some delightful options to be found in many areas and it is well worth spending a couple of nights here to enjoy the majesty of one of Zimbabwe’s most under-visited yet beautiful areas.

Jen & George

We were bundled into a vehicle and dashed off to see a leopard within the first 30 minutes of arriving; it was an AWESOME start. Our guide completely made the entire experience. He was an exceptional birder and his best party trick was to point out the bird and then tell us the exact page we could find it in our book. We combined Zimbabwe with Mozambique, and our beach hotel felt like a complete hidden gem. The sand is like ‘moon dust’ and the hospitality and food were fantastic.
