The chilly and unpredictable weather as the city lies in region one of the country. one must have warm clothing and bedding. The city is also the gateway to Mozambique our nearest port as the country is landlocked. It is mountainous. Low density suburbs are found in the east of the city. Building a new house is quite expensive as the land has to be leveled first.

Mutare has many scenic views and the climate is warm to cool throughout the year. The city’s economy is driven by mainly agriculture, mining and tourism. It is not very expensive to live in the city compared to to the major cities like Harare and Bulawayo. Arts and culture are valued greatly by the people.

Mutare is in the mountains. There is not a lot of activities but we benefit from tourism. The environment is taken very seriously and it was attracts most of the travellers. There are a few shopping centres where you can buy food and clothes. The children can go to the movies.

Mutare is a beautiful city with rolling hills and deep valleys. It is referred as the jewel in the east and is a gateway to Mozambique. The weather is beautiful such that Cecil John Rhodes had his summer home in Nyanga. There are many renowned tourist attractions in the surrounding areas.

My city is the cleanest in the country. It is near the Mozambican border which is our closest partner in trade. The tallest building in the city has twelve floors. It is in a valley and is surrounded by vast mountains. My city is accessible from all directions with a good road network system. Anyone would be blessed to live in Mutare.

My city is in an isolated, mountainous location with the best view you could ever imagine. Shona is the primary spoken language. Mutare is in region five which means that it is quite cold and wet as it is always raining.
