Some more pics of the botanical gardens
I think it must rain a lot in the Vumba, there were water drains all over the place, and these water features, with their cute little bridges too
From several places in the gardens there are benches strategically placed for people to gaze at the distant view…
These tree ferns are abundant in the garden
I took this pic at the Vumba Botanical Gardens!
The sun had gone down when I took this pic –
A little earlier
It was overcast and cold, the day we visited this awesome garden.
There were only a few other people, and I was able to amble slowly along the paths, savouring the atmosphere – the silence, the wonderful trees.
The water was like a mirror…
Love the cute little bridges…
There are benches everywhere..
And the trees…to die for!!!
The Vumba mountains are in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe.
The views are spectacular…
This last one, taken on a cold morning. I had to wait for the mist and low cloud to clear, before I got these pics
This dam is Chikamba Dam in Mozambique, the vantage point where I took this pic – in Zimbabwe!
Somewhere over there is the sea!!!
This cliff overlooks the Forbes border post with Mozambique. We stopped at this place both on the way in:
And the way out:
Amazing the difference, isn’t it?
A better pic of Forbes Border post – with the ubiquitous cell phone tower (bane of my photographic life!)
This last, is an HDR, composite photo of the view from the Prince of Wales cliff:
