The college has 40 km of Matabeleland bush, 10 km approximately is game fenced and houses Quiet Waters game park. The park contains examples of most of Zimbabwe's plains game species, including zebra, giraffe, kudu, impala, tssessebe, bushbuck and warthog. The campus is surrounded by an electric fence ( a reminder of the bush war of pre-1980) and is a small oasis of green in amongst the dry semi-desert Matabeleland conditions. An air strip is nearby.
The college admittance is based on strength of prior education and character of the applicant. Although the vast majority of students are Zimbabwean, others attend from neighboring countries (Zambia, Botswana). Some scholarships are available to deserving students whose particular financial circumstances do not allow for the payment of school fees.
