About Masvingo

In south-eastern Zimbabwe, Masvingo was originally known as Fort Victoria. Thereafter, it was known as Nyanda for a short span and was finally named Masvingo. It is one of the notable Zimbabwe tourist places and is located close to Great Zimbabwe and Lake Mutirikwi. Masvingo has a relatively flat landscape with rolling mountains which makes it ideal for indulging in trekking and hiking. Adding to the scenery of the city, Lake Mutirikwi lies close to Masvingo and is great for a quick getaway.

The top attractions in Masvingo are Great Zimbabwe, Chipinda Pools, South Gonarezhou National Park, and Lake Kyle Recreational Park. Especially, one must not miss visiting the Lake Kyle Recreational Park which is rich in flora and fauna. Great Zimbabwe also makes for a lovely escapade.
