September has flown by and we await the rains - with perhaps some welcome October storms - to transform our winter landscape to the verdant green of summer. Inn on Rupurara has experienced an active month with leisure and conference guests enjoying the facilities on offer. We were delighted to receive the news that our restaurant retained its five-plate status in the Zimbabwe On A Plate competition this year, with a wonderful review published in The Standard on September 30. Also awarded to Inn on Rupurara, at the Association of Zimbabwe Travel Agents 2012 Awards ceremony, was the runner-up award for the Best Country Hotel and Resort. We are proud of the Inn and our staff in their achievements and endeavours! It has been necessary to increase the feeding programme for the game animals and horses as the Rupurara Estate's vegetation is now low in nutritional value and we are carefully monitoring the situation until the rains. A most welcome addition to the Estate's staff in September was Paddington Dini, a young and enthusiastic bird guide. He has declared Rupurara Estate "a birder's paradise" and new sightings are recorded daily. We are, at present, revisiting and updating our bird list and Paddington looks forward to visits from keen birders with which to enjoy the walks through the Estate. Inn on Rupurara is actively involved in the Nyanga Publicity Association to promote our magnificent district. The Association is planning a clean-up of Nyanga Village, and the hotels in the district have also undertaken to clear the main road of litter for a kilometre on either side of the respective hotel entrances. The Association is also involved in an ant-snare campaign in the district, working with the community and National Parks. Group walks have rendered the collection of many snares and this will be an on-going exercise. We at Inn on Rupurara are ever vigilant with antisnare patrols on the land within and outside our fence line. A site visit to Ziwa Ruins and Museum (formerly known as Van Niekerk Ruins) was also undertaken recently by the Nyanga Publicity Association for its members and this has highlighted another fascinating area for visits by guests to the hotel. We are planning a long-awaited Wellness Weekend in November, please contact Armadillo Travel in Harare for details and to make bookings for these special weekends. The Inn's Guest Relations Manager, Gloria Browning, and Chairman, Gordon Addams, were in attendance at the Best of Zimbabwe stand at the St John's College Spring Fair on Sunday October 7. It was wonderful meeting and greeting old and new acquaintances there.

The Amalinda Collection

Summer in the Matobo Hills is all about change. Like Chaucer's classic prologue to his Canterbury Tales, the land is sweetly, brilliantly alive. Trees begin to push forth their new brilliantly-green shoots while wild flowers tentatively peek their new buds through the scorched soil. The grey granite rock begins to disappear as the foliage revives yet the majesty of this wonderful land gradually remains stunningly apparent. The splendid scenery is complimented by the new and vibrant hues of the grass which changes from the wintery yellow we have become used to into a glorious melange of greens, reds and pinks. The sunsets are simply breathtaking, the dust and smoke in the air lending the day's end an aura of such magnificent majesty, it has to be seen to be believed. To this end, I often spend the end of my day watching this from Malindidzimu, Cecil Rhodes' visionary resting place.

Animal spotting becomes a real joy because many are wobblingly pregnant, holding forth the promise of new life in the green season. The frisky frolics of the impalas are balanced by the stately majesty of the white rhino as he slowly snuffles around one of his "girls". Our zebras at Camp Amalinda have been really vocal, whistling and snorting, huffing and puffing as they canter about, while the sole zonkey changes his allegiance between our two herds. We've even had a group of sable sleeping on the property for a short time! The birdlife is truly amazing; the migrants have returned which means we get to watch yellow-billed kites hunting, myriads of storks fishing, and the lovely little weavers will soon begin building their intricate and snug homes. We have ground hornbills nesting down the valley and I am greeted every morning by their eerie booming call that sounds a bit like "two-two-two pounds and six - no, no, no change!" One of my favourite sounds in the bush. When we hear it, it means the rains are not far off and then - the land will really come alive. Can't wait! (Article written by Paul Hubbard)
