Cedar Peak Cottage, Nyanga is located in the Cedar Peak Game Reserve nestled among the indigenous dwarf msasa trees and the rare cedar trees.

The cottage enjoys sweeping views of the largest Zimbabwean mountain, Mount Inyangani which is a soaring 2600 m, and the Nyanga district as well as Mount Rupararo, also known as the Bald Man's Head.

Here one can experience the sheer solitude of this location, where misty nights chilled by the fresh mountain air are warmed by log fires over a bottle of red. Please note the cottage has no electricity, though there is gas and a generator on site. One will leave the trappings of city life and disconnect for a while.

Located in near proximity and in view of the Nyanga National Park, Cedar Peak Cottage, Nyanga is located in this popular Eastern Highlands tourist destination with its fishing, golf courses, mountain hikes and rivers. The surrounding areas also contain many Stone Age and Iron Age archaeological remains such as pit structures, stone forts, terraces and pathways; one of which is located on the property.
