Lying within the Bulawayo City boundary, Hillside Dams Conservancy’s natural vegetation is still largely intact and includes a wide range of species and a diverse bird life. As a community-oriented project the area has been leased by a group of local residents with the aim of restoring it to being once again one of the prime recreational venues in Bulawayo, to be enjoyed by all of its visitors.
