Chipinge Safari Area, Tanganda, Lowveld, Southeastern Zimbabwe, Southern Africa.

26000-Ha in the southeastern lowveld. The rugged terrain is a challenge to the enthusiastic hiker.† Vegetation is typical of the semi-arid regions with species such as mopane, baobab, acacia, terminalia and combretum present. Miombo woodlands line several hills and a colony of cycads lines one of the many cliff edges. Game includes the endangered black rhino, leopard, hyena (hyaena), jackal, kudu, zebra, wildebeest impala and others.† Birds include martial, long crested and snake eagles, bateleur, several hornbills, francolin, guineafowl, orioles, doves and waterfowl. Self-guided game drives. However, a 4x4 is required for most of the area. Rhino Trails offers a guided rhino tracking tour, providing one with an opportunity to view and photograph this magnificent animal in the wild.

The administrative office is 25-km from Tanganda Junction on the Mutare/Chisumbanje highway. Camping and picnic facilities are available with a spacious ablution block and braai stands at Chipangayi campground, 4-km from the highway. Safe drinking water is available. AVChipinge
