We just arrived home after 7 delightful nights at this resort. The Old World Charm and colonial ambiance supplemented by the friendly, helpful and numerous!staff, added to its charms. Although the monkeys don't think twice about stealing fruit from your room, their proximity was delightful - as babies were in abundance and the mothering process charming to watch from close quarters. Warthog, also with babies, impala, and bushbuck grazed just below our verandah and while walking on the gholf course one can see more of the above plus waterbuck, kudu AND crocodiles! the pool area is beautiful and the air conditioning in the rooms worked 99 % of the time (when there is a power failure, the generator cant include the a/c).
the rooms are extremely well appointed and serviced twice a day! the breakfast was superb and the a la carte menu good - though pricey on a South African budget BUT that was the case with all the tourist expenses in Zimbabwe...
We would highly reccommend this resort.
