Day 3 Eastern Highlands Historical
History left its marks in the whole area. There are remnants of early settlers: forts, the so-called pit structures, all quite well documented in the Ziwa museum. Near Rhodes Nyanga Hotel there is another museum, telling the stories of Cecil Rhodes who left part of his legacy in Nyanga.
You would like to have tea and scones at one of the resorts, and warm yourself at the cosy fireplace, or something more challenging: try trout fishing in the crystal waters
