Ngomakurira - The Beating Drum -
One well kept secret are the subsidiary hikes within the same Domboshava (Shona for 'red rock') area, some of which take you through valleys, rivers and waterfalls, including caves and rock art. We make it our business to know these trails.
Mount Nyangani - the sacred mountain -
Silozwane - Matopo Hills -
Camping in the villages is a definite possibility during the summer months, you will just need mosquito repellant.
Chimanimani - raw nature -
Although it is possible to hike up to the summit in one day, 7+ hours, it is always better to spend the night at the overnight hut. Inside the park, you can of course nestle inside the caves overnight, I am sure you are agree it makes for a better story!
Mberengwa - virgin territory -
Mt Buchwa: the isolated mountain is worth separating from the rest - with its dry acacia and miombo woodlands, and the Eastern highlands influenced evergreen forests.
Vumba Mountains - walker's paradise -
Masvingo - Ancient City -
Mount Banirembizi - complex geological mix -
You can expect a wild and rugged terrain!
