Mount Bengo “Face of the Old Man” 

About 4km North East of Chimoio is a popular rock formation / mountain called Mount Bengo. Locals from Chimoio have nicknamed the mountain Cabeça do Velho (“Face of the Old Man”) because if you view Mount Bengo from Chimoio, the mountain portrays a side profile of an old man’s face. A combination of shadows and rock protrusions in certain areas, shows a chin, mouth, nose, eye and forehead, hence the nickname “Face of the Old Man” that was given. Mount Bengo is approximately 850m long and 550m wide.
