The beautiful Eastern Highlands mountain range extends 300 km from north to south and forms a natural border in the east between Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The Eastern Highlands can be split into three distinct areas; Nyanga to the north, Bvumba roughly in the centre and the fierce granite spikes of Chimanimani to the south.
Due to its high altitude the highlands have a cooler and wetter climate than the rest of Zimbabwe, with low cloud and heavy mists. Many streams and rivers originate in these mountains, which form the watershed between the Zambezi and the Save River systems.

With its rolling hills, deep blue trout lakes, pine forests and hiking trails the scenery around Nyanga is reminiscent of Scotland. Lying south east of Mutare, Zimbabwe's third largest city, Bvumba is an area of steep green "mountains of the mist", clothed in indigenous forest. Here one can experience fascinating cloud effects, breath taking views towards Mutare and into neighbouring Mozambique, over coffee plantations and the Burma Valley to the Himalaya and the jagged peaks and deep ravines of the Chimanimani mountains - the highest peak reaching 2440m (8005ft).
Recreation comes in form of challenging hilly golf courses and pony rides through the heather, as well as the opportunity for abseiling, hiking squash, tennis, bowls, fishing, snooker and gambling in the casino.
