Pink Papaya, Chimoio, Mozambique

9-10th June

We found this place in the dead of night, actually complete luck as we drove down the main road into Chimoio through a black gate we took a left turn to do a u-turn and as the lights swung around, we could see the “Pink Papaya” sign painted on the white wall. It was actually a god send, as we had enquired at the Hotel up the road who wanted $100+ a night and we declined the crazy offer.

The place is run by Anja and Friedo who are pleasant enough and have a great white Pink Papaya 4×4 parked in the drive way. Oh yes and two massive brown ridgeback dogs to look after you, just don’t sit on his chair and a large table to sit at on the patio outside!

The dorm has 10 beds and there’s one double room, which is large and comfortable draped by a huge mosquito net. Nice place and the people running it are very welcoming.
