The Recreational Park is 16,900 hectares in extent of which 9,300 hectares are occupied by Lake Mutirikwi when it is full. The Park area is bounded on the north by the Beza Range which rises to a height of 1,455 metres. Between this range and Lake Mutirikwi, is an undulating plain which terminates in an area of broken hills dividing Lake Mutirikwi into two main areas: east and west. Four main estuaries are a feature of the lakeshore in the central section of the area which is divided by deep inlets. Great Zimbabwe is situated on the southern side of the Park
The camp site is located 700 metres from the Tourist Office. There are eleven camping sites with two ablution blocks consisting of toilets and hot showers, plus two dining shelters.
There are five caravan sites with a maximum capacity of six people at each site. The picnic sites have ablution and fire places and are mainly for day use. Popoteke picnic site is located about ten kilometres from the entrance gate and situated in the northern portion of the Park. The Popoteke gorge site adjoins a special conservation area; a gorge rich in estuarine for spawning fish.
The Park is home to more than twenty-five species of wild mammals. The more common ones include; white rhinoceros, buffalo, eland, zebra, wildebeest, kudu, tsessebe, reedbuck, leopard warthog, waterbuck, impala, hippopotamus, ostrich, klipspringer and porcupine. Some of the rarer species include; antbear, bushbuck, bushpig, leopard, sable and steenbok. The beauty of the woodland is largely due to the absence of elephant, which tend to trash the vegetation. Much of the plain area has been inundated by the lake waters on previous years and is generally bare of vegetation, although black wattle is establishing itself and needs to be kept in check.
Great Zimbabwe is a ruined city in the south-eastern hills of Zimbabwe near Lake Mutirikwe and the town of Masvingo. It was the capital of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe during the country's Late Iron Age. Construction on the city began in the 11th century and continued until it was abandoned in the 15th century.
At its peak, traditional estimates are that Great Zimbabwe had as many as 18,000 inhabitants. The largest collection of ruins south of the Sahara, this fort offers a variety of stone buildings
