    Rukweza, rural village

    by sachara Written Feb 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Rukweza we saw many round huts with walls, which were not made of mud, but built with bricks. The huts had thatched roofs. There were also a lot of square concrete buildings in all kind of sizes.

    A pity we didn't sleep in the huts, but in a large square shaped house in the centre of the village, where we had electricity, running water, a toilet and a shower.

    The village Rukweza is rather small, so everywhere we had a nice view at the surrouning landscape. We also made a walk outside the village, where our hosts showed us the crops at the fields. The people coming from their fields or other villages greeted us very friendly.

    Rukweza, village stay

    by sachara Updated Feb 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During our trip in Zimbabwe we stayed for two days in a village, Rukweza. We could sleep on the ground in a big house in the centre of the village.

    It was not easy to find the village. We had to turn off from the highway, 10 KM after Nyazuru. Two times we choosed the wrong track. The unpaved roads became very narrow and we saw a lot of tiny villages with round huts.

    After one or two hours we found the five boys and girls of the village, waiting for us at the crossroad. Ten minutes later we arrived in Rukweza.

    Rukweza is close to Rusape, south-east of Harare

    Chinhoyi Caves National Park

    by Waxbag Written Jan 27, 2004

    Just north of Harare are the Chinhoyi Caves National Park. These caves are a nice attraction but not mind blowing. There are a couple of short trails that send you into the dolimite sinkhole. The water is the best part as it is increadibly blue and clear. The Chrirodzira Pool is 90 m deep and lovely.

    It is a National Park which is unfortunate because you have to pay National Park prices for this little side trip. But, it think it is worth seeing if you are interested in caves.
