Manjirenji Recreational Park, centred on Manjirenji Dam, is 40.4 miles north of Chiredzi and stretches over 27 square kilometres. Manjirenji Dam lies in south eastern Zimbabwe, east of Masvingo . It was built to provide irrigation water to the farming estates on the lowveld to the southwest, around the town of Chiredzi, where the main crop has been sugar cane.
The park is an attractive area set in hilly country and offers recreational facilities such as boating to residents of Masvingo and the lowveld. Most of the soils are derived from the gneisses of the region and support areas of Brachystegia woodland.
There are no large mammal species in the park but it has some good populations of waterfowl.
