De volta ao cronograma original do Projeto 20°12', pegamos a estrada na perna mais puxada da viagem, em direção ao Zimbábue, o 2º da África Austral com terras a 20º12' que visitaríamos.
Saímos cedo de Tofo, demos adeus à praia e também ao cara que apelidamos de "filho do Milton" (o cara é igual a um outro Milton …
Came in from Mozambique, over the border to the third largest city called Mutare. Money changers were all over the place when we got closer to the border. I changed a bit, got only a medium good rate. Takes some time before you get the hang of it. I also had some problems at the Forbes Road border post. Almost not granted visa into the country. My …
We finally left at 11am, a bit later than we had expected but at least we had enough time to leave for the journey home. But, just before we headed back towards the capitol I wanted to go to the border of Mozambique. For my first year fine art project, I’ve chosen to explore and understand the ideology amongst African boundaries and borders.

TravelPod Member ReviewsLeopard Rock Hotel Mutare
We've been at Leopard Rock on Oct'10, it was dark in the night and we arrived without a reservation. We really thought it would be vacant but in fact it was almost fully booked. We had luck to find a room. The hotel is luxurious and keeps the shape of its start after a refurbishing few years early, it was a great experience. At the gate the security guy gave us a salute! This place has a history... fairly isolated in a green Zimbabwe's area, the room were comfortable, the service was perfect although the dinner could have more options in the menu, but it doesn't bothered us. Because the economical embargo our credit cards didn't work there so we had to pay in cash what surprised us because the hotel is a little pricey, but it worth.
