 Nyanga’s Rich Heritage

“Nyanga’s Rich Heritage”  (2016)  By Rob Burrett & Edone Ann Logan. pp.104. This booklet covers the natural history of Nyanga; its geology, landscapes, waterfalls and diverse vegetation. There is a section on archaeology, including current understanding of the terracing, the pits, the forts and water furrows, based on research over the last two decades. More recent history of Nyanga is covered, from the arrival of Douglas MacAdam, the Rhodes’ Estate, the growth of farming and the tourism industry and its facilities, the various Christian missions, to the 1970s. The final section is a roadside guide – a trip down memory lane along the main road from Rusape northward, in which various current and past hotels and personalities are mentioned. The booklet is a guide to help modern tourists, but will also appeal to former Zimbabweans who have fond memories of Inyanga.
