Driving from Harare to Inyanga is 264 Kilometres, so you may feel the need to stop for a cup of tea and and a slice of cake to restore your sense of humour! Halfway House is well placed for that break in the journey. It also has a small supermarket; so anything you forgot in Harare you may be able to find here. Walk through into a shady courtyard with a tearoom, butchery, curio and antique shop.

Order your tea and cakes and whilst waiting, browse through the antique shop for china plates, brass jardinières, or a Syrian side table inlaid with mother of pearl!

If you need more time for antiques browsing after tea; suggest to your husband and children that they admire the steam traction engines and agricultural implements!
