|Sleeping Pool Cave
It's one and a half hours drive northwest from Harare by minibus taxi. I woke up at 6, and was at the road just before 7. I chose to go in a bigger van (like those airport shuttles) and was seated in the front seat between the driver and another passenger. The uncomfortable part was only that I had to move away a bit for the driver to be able to change gear. I got to Chinhoyi around 9.30 and stayed around there for about an hour. I waited to see if the sun would shine more into the cave and reach the water, but the cave isn't orientated that way.

That day I almost had accidents twice, with two different combis, but the same mistake: they both went back on the road without looking. The first almost got hit by a truck, and the second by a bakkie. Fortunately nothing happened. Sometimes these drivers are really careless.
It has otherwise been a nice little outing from which I came back to Harare around 2.
