Back to Recreational Parks
The undeveloped 3 046 acre Umzingwane Recreational Park is situated about 38 kilometres south-east of Bulawayo. It is based on the Umzingwane Dam and has limited wildlife and some good birdlife. It provides an important recreational facility for watersports such as angling and boating within easy reach of Bulawayo but there are no accommodation facilities.
Umzingwane was designated a Private Game Reserve in 1968 and subsequently a Recreational Park under the Parks and Wild Life Act (1975).
