Located in the southeast of the country, Masvingo is one of the first colonial settlements of Zimbabwe. It boasts a wonderful Old Fort located in the heart of the city, built as a protective measure many years ago. The plain savannah landscape surrounding the city is interspersed with rocky formations called kopjes. Although it is located in a dry region, Masvingo receives its water from the Lake Mutirikwi nearby. The city is only a few kilometers from the Great Zimbabwe National Monument and the white rhinos of the Kyle Game Resort, and is a perfect base to visit these locations.
