Nyanga National Park lies in the north of Zimbabwe’s Eastern Highlands. In its centre is Mt. Nyangani, the highest point in Zimbabwe at 2,592m (8,504ft) and Mutarazi Falls (762m), Zimbabwe’s highest waterfall is in the south of the park.
The terrain is characterized by green hills covered in dense pine and wattle forests, also including flat-top acacias and dwarf msasa trees. The cool valleys are home to species of proteas, everlastings and sprawling orchards filled with fresh fruit. In addition to an abundance of plant-life, the bird watching is prolific; with over 300 species including migratory birds that fly in between November and April.
The perennial streams are stocked with rainbow trout, providing the finest fly fishing experience in Mare, Rhodes, Gulliver and Purdon lake. Udu is the only lake where bream fishing takes place.
Nyanga is also home to zebra and several species of antelope, including the waterbuck, wildebeest, klipspringer, kudu and eland. The main predators include leopards, hyenas and the occasional lion from the Mozambican lowlands.
