It's the perfect setting for a debrief and networking discussion around the pool deck after a hard day in the city.

Lots of B&Bs in Harare and this is one of my favorites. The newly renovated rooms are spacious, comfortable and stylishly decorated. Not all rooms have AC so make sure you ask if this is important to you. Very nice dinners available on request. Friendly and accommodating staff. Lovely garden setting in centrally located suburb.

Marvelous hospitality as ever and went out of their way to help rescue my suitcase from the airport when it lost itself en route - plenty of hotels would have dumped the problem right back on me! Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Harare.

Our special dietary needs were also catered for and the chef is a craftsman. The room was large clean and beds comfortable. I would recommend the lodge to friends and...
