The second weekend in December saw a hive of activity in the Bvumba area.
On Saturday 17th December the monthly Wepu (Wild Life Enviroment Protection Unit) walk took us through the Bunga forest to a cliff view point which overlooked the Burma Valley. Spectacular scenery on a clear day giving all the walkers a panoramic view all the way to the Himalayas mountain range and across to the Chimanimani mountains.
On Sunday the 18th December the monthly Bvumba Church gathering was held at the White Horse Inn. Christmas carols were well attended and sung by an audience of more than forty people. The carols were followed by a bring and share lunch, a spread fit for a king.
The heavy rains in the third week of this month have completely transformed Madrugada forest and surrounding area – fields of ferns sprouting from nowhere, butterfly and bird life activity prolific and beautiful indigenous flowers appearing in the undergrowth.
