Hunyani River

Hunyani River

      river in northern Zimbabwe and Mozambique, rising northwest of Marondera (formerly Marandellas) and flowing westward past Harare (formerly Salisbury) to Kutama. The river then turns north past Chinhoyi (formerly Sinoia) and the Hunyani Range and cuts through the Rukowakuona Mountains to the Lowveld. It crosses the Mozambique border at Hunyani, receiving the Duângua River after a course of 260 miles (418 km). It continues as the Panhame River, which joins the Zambezi at the town of Panhame. The Hunyani is dammed along its section south of Harare by the Prince Edward and Hunyani Poort dams. The latter impounds Lake McIlwaine (6,000 acres [2,400 hectares]), which has been developed as a pleasure resort, with boating and fishing facilities.
