I made an early departure (from Juliasdale,) for a scenic drive through the Honde Valley, but couldn’t resist one last shot at the Msasa, and I’m glad I did.
The first rays of the sun were just peaking over the hills, lighting up a few leaves.
This one above, is Mount Nyangane – where the Pungwe River which I would be to follow for for several hours, in the Honde Valley, originates.
The National Parks man, was horrified to see me burst out of the forest along a road he said hadn’t been used for years!
The Honde Valley is in the Eastern Highland border with Mozambique. Back during the bush war, it was very much the ‘sharp end’ and many lives were lost there. It’s also very beautiful…
In this photo above, you can see how tall the trees are. The arboreal atmosphere is very strong here. Once again, I was in tree heaven.
