Drive from Bulawyo to Mutare

We will be traveling by car from Bulawayo to Mutare via Masvigo. Any suggestions for things to see, places to eat, or must do along the way would be greatly appreciated.

Also any advise on dealing with the police check points would be very helpful. These are scarey in any country.

To be quite honest there is not a great deal along this route except some outstanding scenery. The obvious big one though is Great Zimbabwe Ruins just outside Masvingo, this is an absolute must and is often missed by visitors to Zimbabwe purely because it is quite hard to get to. Birchenough bridge on-route is also quite a sight.

Re Police roadblocks just ensure that you have your correct paperwork, which are the car papers including insurance and a TIP if you are in a foreign car and your drivers licence. The police are friendly and won't hassle you if all is in order. Dont speed as you will get caught. If you are in a local hire vehicle you will have all the correct vehicle requirements, like correct reflectors, warning triangle etc, if you are in a foreign vehicle you must ensure you have these. I can advise further if needs be.
