      A beautiful old style English cottage in the lush of an African garden. Peaceful at night, easy to reach, not expensive and conveniently located as it is very close to the Botanical Garden, Forest Hill restaurant and Leopard Rock. I recommend it for a week end getaway from Mozambique (130km from Chimoio), that is what I did myself. Here you can buy plants and a delicious homemade honey! And if you like horses, Peter will take you into the forest or to see giraffes and zebras on a horseback at Leopard Rock! I really enjoyed my ride!
