Zuvuya Farm nestles at the foot of a mountain, abundant with streams and waterfalls. Bird life abounds and game returns slowly to the land. Sparkling spring water is piped into our homes, a legacy of the wonderful rain which falls in the summer months, winter days are warm and cloudless, the nights crisp beneath star-spangled skies.
