Spread throughout southern Africa, the Southern Miombo Woodland ecoregion is distributed in several portions across the Central African Plateau. It covers central Zimbabwe and extends into Mozambique, southern Zambia and Malawi.

The landscape is flat or gently undulating, with numerous rounded hills which frequently rise up above the woodland. Miombo woodland mixes with mopane and smaller wetlands to provide habitat for a wide variety of animals, including endangered and charismatic mammals such as African elephants (Loxodonta africana) and black rhinos (Diceros bicornis).

This ecoregion is disjunct in distribution and consists of four main parts, separated at least partially by the drainage systems of Zimbabwe and Zambia. The largest section covers most of Zimbabwe, and spills over into Mozambique on the eastern side of the Chimanimani Mountain Range.

Zambezian Mopane Woodland surrounds most of this area and separates this block from the second largest section of the Southern Miombo Woodland ecoregion. North of the Zambezi Valley, this portion extends over the southern third of Zambia, as well as into the western parts of Malawi and northern Tete province in Mozambique. The part of this land that is near the Rufunsa area in Lusaka Province of Zambia is home to the bees that produce the honey the taste of which we celebrate.
