This was our second stay at the Lodge after our vacation in Zim last year. This time we´ve stayed there at the beginning and the end of our holiday in Zimbabwe. We´ve booked the standard room, wich was spacious (bathroom too) and immaculately clean. The breakfast consisted of Cereals, Joghurt, Toast, Fruit Salad, Coffee, Tea and and a hot selection, very tasty. Pick up at the airport was on time and very reliable. The grounds of the lodge are very calm and beautiful. We will definitely stay there again, when visting Zimbabwe.
14 Jacana Gardens was the Santuary I sought after I checked out of my urban hotel where I had stayed for a week. Jacana is really a home away from home. It is cozy and comfortable, a gem set in a tranquil garden. It is beautifully furnished with a rustic appealing look and wonderful art pieces. Riana the host is wonderful, catering to my every need. The bedrooms are colourfully done with nice showers. I just loved my 7 stay there and made my first visit to Zimbabwe all the more memorable.
Jacana Gardens is excellent. The hosts make it a true away from home, with thoughtful amenities such as helping with ordering in take-away food, a communal bar and superb breakfast. The staff are wonderful. This is among the top places I have stayed anywhere in the world. It truly is like being in your own house, and the garden is fabulous, with many birds, sculptures and tasteful art throughout the house and grounds. You really can't do better in Harare.
We had the pleasure of staying at Jacana Gardens earlier this year. What a beautiful experience. From the verdant surroundings to the very hospitable owners and friendly staff, made for a great start to our time in Harare. We booked the self catering cottage. The lodgings were very comfortable and the amenities well suited to our requirements. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. The location does require that you have a car to get to the shops which are a short drive away. We highly recommend Jacana Gardens to the discerning traveller- you will not be disappointed! And a cup of the freshly brewed Zimbabwean coffee in the mornings at Jacana, is simply a MUST!
I recently spent a month in Harare on a business trip and luckily was accommodated at the Jacana Gardens Guest Lodge. This is an incredible B&B in the middle of Harare and is contained in a mystical walled oasis. The rooms are rustic, yet are extremely comfortable and private. The grounds are more of a small park with a pond and many locally fabricated metallic works of art, both large and small, interspersed around the grounds. A daily laundry service is also provided. The owners are very friendly and make you feel at home from the moment you enter the front gate. I expect to be called back later in the year for business, if this is the case I sincerely hope that I am again accommodated at the Jacana Gardens. My first stay was a pleasure!
Beautiful property with friendly and attentive hosts. Great attention to detail in terms of guest’s needs. Security is extremely good. Great location with close proximity to all amenities. Guest information fanatic.
Lovely place, The rooms are very nice and the gardens are amazing to relax. The sympathy of the owners and employees is top. They are always keen to provide support. Home away from home in Harare. Must stay.
The owner of the guest house is very hands-on and accommodating to my requests. The rooms are clean, neat, and cozy. Its located in a good area of Harare and is security controlled. I felt very safe. It has a beautiful garden, making for a relaxed, homely enviroment.
Second visit to Jacana Gardens. The first time was 8 (!) years ago on a business trip. I really loved it then. Sweet memories, felt safe and taken care of. This time we stayed together as part of our holiday nature tour in Zimbabwe. We were totally impressed how the owners succeeded to even further improve this wonderful place which was already perfect in my memory. Once you pass the gate the lush gardens filled with art welcome you like entering into a true garden of Eden. Lovely staff, the core of whom was already there 8 years ago, doing an excellent solid job to make your stay memorable.
I visited this beautiful establishment in February 2022 on business. The accommodation was stunning with artwork in and around the property. The atmosphere was relaxing, scenery was superb and serene. Riaan and her staff were fantastic. Riaan was lovely to talk to, I still miss our chats! Please visits Jacana Garden Guest Lodge, you will not be disappointed!
