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.

Zimbabwean who we had met in Zanzibar. He took us out to dinner to a
Portuguese restaurant, Coimbre, which was amazing, the best chicken
and chips we've ever had!
Ready to leave Harare, we headed to the
Bvumba Mountains in the Eastern Highlands. We got a 4 hour bus to
Mutare, the third largest city in Zimbabwe. From here we needed to
get to the Bvumba mountains, which were apparently 22k from ...
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. It’s something that fascinates me, that geographical lines across countries can cause so much conflict. I am so ...
... it’s very calm and you feel free walking around. After the bank had swallowed Martha’s credit card our journey was delayed so I took a detour around a few of the side streets.
It feels very different here this time. It doesn’t feel like Africa. At first the general obvious differences shocked me and the foreign atmosphere felt good. Now, it just feels like home. The journey must have been one of the best I have ...
... spoke openly about the system of land reform, which he agreed with. The land reform was a process whereby Mugabe declared that all land held by the white farmers to be illegal and initiated a system of land reallocation. This effectively meant that he and his cronies brutally evicted the white land owners (the vast majority who had been there for many generations) and allocated it to his closest political allies. It should be noted that these farms where some of the most productive ...
