Another Eastern Highlands trip
We spent another weekend in the Eastern Highlands this weekend. Again, last minute, the plan changed. Originally, we were going to Lake Kariba (again). This time, we were going to rent a houseboat, but when our group grew to 14 people and they found out the boat only housed 8, we were amongst the people that got booted off the trip.
Still, we wanted to see Vumba, Mutare and Chimanimani, so we opted for another trip east. Earlier this week, John had stopped by at the lodge to say goodbye before heading off to Mozambique and he suggested a nice place to stay up in the mountains of Nyanga national park. We (Betsy, John and myself) left a bit late and arrived just after sunset. We ended up downing a bottle of rum and a bottle of cognac in front of the fire, courtesy of Nyasha, the caretaker, who hadn’t had anyone visit the place in months, so was happy to, after so long a time, chat to people again.
