Chimanimani District is a mountainous area in the province of Manicaland, eastern Zimbabwe. The region is distinguished by large peaks, carved from a rifted quartzite block, the highest reaching to 2,440 m and stretching for some 50 km, forming the border with Mozambique. Between the village of Chimanimani and the border the ranges are gentler and more rounded. The national park is in the southernmost area of the Eastern Highlands, and is 150 km from the town Mutare .Chimanimani mountainsMuch of the range is composed of quartzite ridges, with Monte Binga at 2,436m the highest point in Mozambique, right after the border.

Nearby is Chirinda Forest, Africa’s southernmost tropical rainforest, harbouring strelitzias, wild orchids, tree ferns, cycads and rare trees. The forest is also home to the 1,000-year-old Big Tree, a Red mahogany nearly 70 m high and 16 m around; it is also the habitat for a near-endemic rare frog, the Inyanga river frog. There is an arboretum near the village.
