Our last stop in the Eastern Highlands is Nyanga. With its craggy mountains and green meadows full of wild flowers, trout filled streams and pine forests, more than anywhere else in Africa Nyanga feels like Scotland. And like Scotland, Nyanga distinguishes itself by its bone chillingly cold and damp evenings. Perhaps that is why Cecil Rhodes, of all places in Rhodesia, picked Nyanga as his residence.
Autumn in the Highlands
but they said there were trouts in that lake !
