Inn on Rupurara was my first lodge stay in africa and I could not have been happier.
We stayed in a twin room overlooking the rock and the view was beautiful. Drinks on the balcony finished off most nights :)
Two activities daily are included in the room rate and we tried many different things, afternood game drive with sundowners, climbing the rock, trip to the waterfall, horseriding etc. All were fabulous and we saw game on every one. If you have your own 4WD go to the waterfall and have a swim. So refreshing and beautiful. You can also get really close to the animals on horseback, way closer than in the car so if you like that sort of thing go for a horse ride.
Breakfast is included and dinner is several courses but not included in the room cost.
The lodge itself has a bar for drinks before dinner and upstairs has a library with lounge and board games.
Like everywhere in Zim the power goes off periodically. This may have gotten better lately, not usre. But just roll with it and do something that doesn't require electricity.
I stayed November a few years ago
