Diving in Zimbabwe

Explore diving in Zimbabwe

Diving in Zimbabwe is dominated by the spectacular Chinhoyi Caves which are are a group of caves near the town of Chinhoyi in Zimbabwe and named after a local chief who used them as a refuge.

Diving is fantastic in the caves all year round, with temperatures never below or above 22/24C marks with zero thermocline. Visibility is fantastic too, 50 metres and above is not unusual. The caves are protected by National Parks so you are only allowed to dive there if you are with a Zimbabwean registered dive club/centre.

The main feature is the limestone cavern that was formed when the ground collapsed into a sinkhole. This hole falls for twenty metres to the surface of a very deep cavern of water. This pool is called Sleeping Pool or Chirorodzira (Pool of the Fallen).
