Image Caption: Bush Fires in Southern Mozambique
Easterly winds from the Mozambique Channel blow the smoke from many large fires in southern Mozambique inland. Neighboring views show the smoke moving over and around the Chimanimani Mountains, into Zimbabwe on the African plateau. Winter is the dry season in southern Africa and fires are set to hasten the greening of the grass shoots for cattle grazing.
