Those amazing views from the top of Nyamakanga mountain in Nyanga.
First the helpful panorama from World’s View, through Nyanga, Nyangano Park, Mount Inyangani, National Parks, Loch Moodie on Claremont Estate, Udu Dam (meaning the water body) to Rupurara:
On the way up showing Udu dam and Rupurara for the first time:
Walking further up you can now view Loch Moodie at Claremont (which you would not know existed as you cannot see it other than walking down through/past the golf course) and Udu Dam at the same time:
Closing in on Udu Dam and Lodges run by National Parks:
Soon your sights will be se on the trig point marker to the north of your position and atop a mini-peak on Nyamakanga plateau. The panorama below is from Mangondoza panning south showing the approximate extent of the Nyanga National Park – definitive boundary map not yet found online – Mount Nyangani in the background:
A few more steps to the north for views in that direction:
Round about now you will want to scramble down from the trig point onto the plateau and go and see what is happening over the other side in Nyanga. You might get to see an augur buzzard on the way:
Plus there are numerous dry-stone walls to contemplate; this panorama from Nyangani to Nyarumvurwe:

Nyamhuka 2, Rochdale, Bepe Park:
And for my Durawall friends, now the Durawall:
View to the west on the way back down:
Worth re-doing the whole trip in the wet season to remove the haze!
