Ndzou Camp

Campground, hut in Chimanimani Mountains

Ndzou Camp, a joint venture between Eco-Micaia and the local community, is a basic back-to-nature place in the middle of Moribane Forest Reserve with admirable eco-credentials (solar-powered lighting and recycled rainwater). It offers camping, rondavels and a small family lodge; for the time being, it's the only real non-camping place to stay in the Chimanimani area.

The camp can be reached by public transport or – if you phone ahead – car pickup from Chimoio.

Also on offer at Ndzou are guided forest walks, birdwatching and the chance to track the local population of forest elephants. Prices start at around US$20 for a half-day activity.
