Health & Climate:
Winters (May to September) are warm with sunny days and cool, clear nights. Overnight frosts and freezing temperatures are not uncommon. Light “guti” rain may occur any time but the rainy season is during the summer months of October to April.
On Zimbabwe’s border with Mozambique lies a verdant valley with what many say is the country’s most picturesque city – Mutare.
