Explore the Border down of Mutoko

Trip Overview

Previous
Next

Mutoko, a small town established as an administrative station in 1911, and home to the Buja people who settled in this area from Mhingari, now Mozambique. It is from this area that the country is fed, with tomatoes, mangoes, cotton, maize and beans being some of the most grown crops. There are several Zimbabwe attractions in Mutoko, leading with the Mutemwa Leprosy Centre established in 1937, and the centre where 25,000 people attend a church service in honour of John Bradburne, a Catholic martyr. Mutoko ruins are the remains of ancient civilisation (14th Century), referred by locals as Tere raMakate, meaning Makate’s old village - an ancient chief who ruled the area until he was subdued by Nehoreka, who came from the north: now Mozambique. There are several caves in and around the Mutoko area, including Madzimudzangara Cave, Ruchera Cave, Manemba Cave, and Gambarimwe Cave. Although some of the caves are remote, we make a reasonable effort to see them. 

The Last Destination is a living village museum, with a collection of traditional weapons, art, and is a cultural preservation centre. Sekuru (an endearing term for an elderly man) Chiunye runs this museum together with his wife, and it gives visitors a chance to live and experience Zimbabwean culture and history. Nyadire River Fishing Safaris are on hand to take you on boat rides, and fishing camps. If you're looking for unique and exclusive Zimbabwe attractions and tours, you've come to exactly the right place!

This has truly been a life changing experience, especially because it was my first trip outside of the United States. The program taught me to be more open to taking new experiences, exposed me to paediatrics at the children’s rehabilitation unit, which I did not think I would enjoy.

Coming to Zimbabwe for my medical internship and working with Tiritose was an interesting experience and I really enjoyed the exposure to the healthcare system, the people and the excursions

I was pretty happy the whole time and the Tiritose staff were very supportive. What I enjoyed most about doing my internship in Zimbabwe is that it was a new continent for me, a whole new perspective on medicine, a better appreciation for the luxuries of US.

What I enjoyed most about doing my medical clinical rotation internship in Zimbabwe was seeing the differences and similarities in how medicine is practiced here vs. the U.S. and differences and similarities in disease incidence.

The programme was also very organised. Other than waiting on our supervising physicians at the Children’s hospital on some of the days, it was a pretty good internship. Oh! And it was made better by watching Black Panther in Africa.

I really liked the balance between the fun staff and the clinical rotations at the various hospitals in the city and the rural placement just blew me away. I was exposed to medical conditions that I would otherwise not come across back home.

I had a wonderful time in Zimbabwe. There are times I find myself fantasizing about going back. The administrative staff were great and really took the time to make the trip as personalized as possible.
