Nyanga National Park is one of Zimbabwe’s oldest national parks and was first established in 1926, it stretches a 472-sq. km. The park underwent an expansion in 1990 and had almost doubled the size that it had been before. The park’s area is home to many streams and rivers running through the land.
Nyanga National Park’s landscape and vegetation consist of both woodlands and rainforest areas. The high altitudes of the area heavily affect the vegetation and wildlife, as there is a large pine forest growing within the park. Some animals that can be seen within the park include kudu, eland, zebra, wildebeest, and waterbuck. As the park is very old, ruins have been discovered throughout the area and display evidence of the ancient lives of those who occupied the area thousands of years ago.
Nyanga National Park Wildlife

Most Scenic Areas Of Zimbabwe's Eastern Highlands
There are too many things to explore in Africa but what are the special things make Nyanga National Park unique? Let’s find out….
Nyanga NP can be visited at any time of the year. The birdlife is good year-round, but at its best from November to April when the migratory birds are present, and many resident birds are in breeding plumage. The scenery is at its best in the Wet season (November to March) or the beginning of the Dry season (April-May). At this time, the vegetation will be lush and green, and the air will be clear and crisp. The area gets very hazy towards the end of the Dry season. Wildlife viewing is hit-and-miss at any time of the year. Roads might get difficult to navigate in the Wet season.
