Where does the sun rise in Zimbabwe?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Zimbabwe is Chimanimani in the region of Manicaland. There, the sun rises at 5:30 am and sets at 5:47 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Victoria Falls (Matabeleland North) at 6:14 pm.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Harare lies on the 18th degree of southern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator. While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Zimbabwe it only lasts an average of 25 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Harare, while in December it's 26 minutes.
