The wonderful December rains continued into the New Year and the first two weeks in January we were blessed with above average rainfall for this time of the year.

The second week of the month brought us a surprise mini cyclone and on Thursday 9th January all hell let loose with the main access road to the Bvumba from Mutare being blocked by fallen Pine, Eucalyptus and Wattle trees. The local residents quickly gathered together a chain saw gang workforce and by the end of the day they had managed to clear the larger culprits. The full force of the cyclone brought down a number of power lines and Madrugada remained without power for seven days.

Everything is now back to normal and we look forward to welcoming you to our spectacular views and comfy cottages.
