The Runde River (formerly Lundi) rises at Gweru and flows South East until it joins the Save River in Gonarezhou National Park, at the lowest point in Zimbabwe (250m).


Principal tributaries are the Tokwe, Ngezi, Muturikwe and Chiredzi.


There are many, and large, irrigation schemes in the Runde catchment, including Kyle (Lake Mutirikwi) and Bangala Dams.
