Sundowner at Bué Maria

Just a 30-minute spin on the game-drive vehicle from Chitengo is Bué Maria, a rocky hill overlooking the Pungue, a broad, slow-moving river flowing from the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe all the way to Beira, and into the Indian Ocean. The crumbling walls of the old colonial cotton-ginnery here have been reclaimed by nature, with trees now bursting skyward where a roof used to be.

 

Grab a cold beer from the cooler, sit down, and relax. The sun is setting on a classic African river scene and it’s time to for a “sundowner”. Sometimes, the sound of African drums drifts up from the village below. The sun reaches the horizon, a ball of blazing orange, the kind of amazing sunset only Africa can conjure up. Sip and enjoy…
