Tucked away under a hill on the eastern shores of Lake Mutirikwi (formerly Lake Kyle), lies a lodge reminiscent of the Ancient Great Zimbabwe, the second largest stone monument in Africa. The lodge is ideal for quick getaways, business meetings, weddings, conferences and relaxing holidays. Its location is a convenient epicenter of travel destinations in the Southern Region of Zimbabwe.


17 individual lodges dotted around the area and two family self catering chalets, all spacious and fully furnished, with en-suite facilities. A campsite area is also available.

Food and Beverage: Fully equipped restaurant, bar with DSTV and outside pool bar with braai and recreation area

Conference and Events Facilities:

There are two indoor conference rooms that can accommodate up to 100 people, air conditioned and with own ablution facilities and an outdoor gazebo overlooking the lake that can accommodate up to 1,000 people, depending on the seating arrangement, making it more than ideal for weddings, parties, functions and large conferences.

Blessed Zimbabwe
We ended up switching to a room instead of camping. The lake is nearby and beautiful. We really can’t complain. The food was also very good.

Exactly what was advertised. Great service and dinner and breakfast. Rooms were spacious. We really appreciated that the lodge was pet-friendly.
