The provincial capital, Chinhoyi, has an extraordinary natural wonder to offer her visitors. Not far from town lies an area in which limestone caves eroded and their ceilings collapsed. The water in one of these sinkholes is a deep cobalt blue, due to its extreme depth, and crystal clear.
The Mana Pools and Matusadona National Parks offer breathtaking landscapes and incomparable wildlife viewing!

Matusadona National Park
The 1400 km ² Matusadona National Park was proclaimed a national park in 1975, but it was already a protected area before the creation of the dam. Its northern boundary is the lake shore, to the east and west respectively, its borders are the rivers Sanyati and Ume.
