Mount Darwin, Zimbabwe

Mount Darwin is a village in Mashonaland Central province in Zimbabwe. It is named after the biologist Charles Darwin. It is located 156 kilometres north of Harare.

Mount Darwin is the probable site of some of the earliest European missionary work in southern Africa, by the Portuguese Jesuit Gonçalo da Silveira, who arrived in 1560 and was killed in March 1561 near Mount Darwin following a souring of relations with the local chief.
