So it seems like I have a running theme in terms of adventure spots as well as hidden places for seclusion lol, but in my defence these places have the best holidaying characteristics that leave you rejuvenated as well as unplugging from all the madness we get to go through all year round.
This time around I have decided to visit quarter to my hometown which is Zvishavane and travel a bit along Masvingo road to yet another zimparks jewel…….no I know zimparks is literally everywhere but these guys are organised when it comes to taking care of these resorts plus they also have accommodation on site so stress free unless you don’t like being in the wild. Mushandike Nature reserve is a beautiful recreation, picnic and game all rolled in one viewing haven. It has a wide variety for the most part plains and game species cover a piece of land which is roughly 13,360 hectares, let’s not forget the Dam that inhabits 417 hectares. As for us the visitors, activities such boat-rides and fishing are open for business. The area is mainly subjugated by Brachystegia woodland, open grassland and rocky outcrops a natural habitat for animals such as kudu, duiker, sable, waterbuck, klipspringer, steenbok, Sharpe’s grysbok, Tsessebe, blue wildebeest, impala and warthog to go crazy in. just like most of the nature reserves managed by Zimparks, Mushandike is blessed with birdlife. Oops I almost forgot to give you guys the directions, the game reserve is located roughly 25 kilometres from the city of Masvingo team carpet lol. Driving from the city, please take the Bulawayo Highway route and then turn left at the signpost with the name of the Sanctuary which will then lead straight to the reserve. A gentle reminder take note that after the turn, the road becomes gravel so please please your cars please be gentle.
Accommodation is catered for all you have to do is book then pay, cooler boxes, braaing equipment is all up to you. Take your friends and loved ones on an adventure, enjoy nature and really disconnect yourself.
