Mashava Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 2 photos


This area around a dozen houses is a mining area. There are mainly Asbestos Mines,but some gold mines as well. It has been my second home while my stay in Africa cause my friend lived here. I remember that she was suffering from the asbestos in the air and she needed some vitamins to get better.....

My guards Shamous and Beth

This has been my guesthouse, what luxury I had!!!! I even had these two guards that were taking care of me.....

I remember that we once washed Shamous...that was fun!!!!

I also remember that I heard african songs and drums from the huts nearby in the evenings.....wonderful!
