Adventurous Journey for Bronze Awarders to Nyanga 2018

Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

For this Bronze Journey, we decided to climb Mt Nyangani and explore the Nyazengu Forest. We had five groups of Awarders, of various ages. All of them attended several evenings of training, so that they were as well prepared for this Journey as they possibly could be.

The special aspect of this particular Journey was the interaction we had with National Parks in Nyanga. Mr Sibanda, the new Area Manager, could not have been more helpful or welcoming. As we were climbing Mt Nyangani, he organized for a knowledgeable scout to come with us – Emmanuel. Overall, we felt so well looked after by National Parks and I would recommend a visit to Rhodes Nyanga National Park for anyone interested in being able to have the most beautiful walks.

A lovely day was held out at our local rowing dam, Kushinga Dam. Although the weather started out a little drizzly and overcast it wasn’t long before the sun was out and the heat picked up.

Huge thanks to all who participated and were involved in making the day a success.

Nyanga Fly Fishing Weekend 2018

Thirteen boys spent this weekend in Nyanga National Park hoping to catch trout. Mr Brown from Fly Fishing Zimbabwe was their coach teaching them how to set up their rods, choose flies and cast.

We fished Rhodes dam – some big fish hooked but not landed by the boys although our coach caught two beauties – 1.4 kgs and 1.9 kgs.

We spent time at Mare dam which has easier fishing with jetties to fish from. Boys had a picnic lunch at the Nyangombe swimming pool where we also managed to catch a trout and saw a big eel.

Learner Guides Tree Identification Course 2018

Our pupils were fortunate to have the Southern African expert on trees visit to do a tree identification course with them in Gosho Park.

Meg Coates Palgrave has updated the book on trees of Southern Africa and she has written keys which use mainly leaf characteristics to identify trees.

Botanical terms were explained and everyone learned how to use the key – not always as easy as it sounds so we had to practice - we were told the GOLDEN RULE IS TO LOOK WITH YOUR EYES!
