Destination Details
Mutoko, a small town established as an administrative station in 1911, and home to the Buja people who settled in this area from Mhingari, now Mozambique. It is from this area that the country is fed, with tomatoes, mangoes, cotton, maize and beans being some of the most grown crops. There are several attractions in Mutoko, leading with the Mutemwa Leprosy Centre established in 1937, and the centre where 25,000 people attend a church service in honour of John Bradburne, a Catholic martyr. Mutoko ruins are the remains of ancient civilisation (14th Century), referred by locals as Tere raMakate, meaning Makate’s old village – an ancient chief who ruled the area until he was subdued by Nehoreka, who came from the north: now Mozambique. There are several caves in and around the Mutoko area, including, Madzimudzangara Cave, Ruchera Cave, Manemba Cave, and Gambarimwe Cave. Although some of the caves are remote, we make a reasonable effort to see them.

The Last Destination is a living village museum, with a collection of traditional weapons, art, and is a cultural preservation centre. Sekuru (an endearing term for an elderly man) Chiunye runs this museum together with his wife, and it gives visitors a chance to live and experience Zimbabwean culture and history. Nyadire River Fishing Safaris are on hand to take you on boat rides, and fishing camps.

TALES FROM THE ZIMBABWE EXPERIENCE

NEW YEARS’ EVE IN KARIBA

My last trip to Kariba was during the festive season, a prime time for exploring a small town as it will have slightly more people than usual, and so chances of standing out too much are very slim. I'm a proud domestic tourist, and my goal remains to travel to, and...

INYAURI RIVER HIKE

As has become customary on a Saturday afternoon, I take nature walks and hikes mostly to clear my head while the birds sing to me. It’s a great escape from the busy streets in the City of Harare. I am definitely a city boy, and I don’t think I could stomach small...

10 THINGS TO APPRECIATE ABOUT ZIMBABWE

For someone born and raised in Zimbabwe, it is easy to take some things for granted. I am sure it is the same for a Parisian and the Eiffel Tower! There are certainly some things that you only begin to appreciate once visitors to your country comment or in my case,...
