A stop at the Musketeer Lodge was not in our original plans for our visit to Zimbabwe. After traveling from the USA for three days, very tired and heads spinning, we were taken to the Musketeer Lodge for supper and a welcome night's sleep. Moira and Rudy were excellent hosts and took care of our every need. They are wonderful people on a personal level and knew exactly what to do to settle us down so we could relax. We were fortunate to be able to stay another night later in our travels in Zimbabwe and when we returned we felt like we were visiting good friends and family. If you are planning a visit to Bulawayo, the Musketeer Lodge is the place to stay, relax, have a delicious meal, enjoy a very comfortable room, have a great conversation and become good friends with Moira and Rudy. A+++ Rating in our book!!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Musketeers Lodge is situated 8 kilometres from Bulawayo City Centre on the Matopos Road, bordering on Tshabalala Nature Reserve. Easy access and a well signposted route takes you out to the city limits and into the bush within minutes, the famous Matopos being only 35km down the road. Set in a beautiful, peaceful environment, boasting rolling green lawns and mature indigenous and exotic trees, it is a bird lover's paradise and a welcome get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for the tired executive. The tranquil well manicured gardens are a welcome escape from the urban cacophony where one can relax and enjoy the beautiful sunset at the end of the day. Sunrise is greeted by birdsong and the fresh breeze of the morning, reminiscent of a bush camp environment. The Musketeers is not only an executive lodge but an ideal stop over on the way to Matopos or for an overnight stay whilst waiting for a connecting flight either to South Africa or to the safari world of Hwange, Victoria Falls and the Great Zimbabwe Ruins. Guided tours of the Matopos and "Walks with Rhinos" are offered with experienced guides on call who will collect and assure the client of a memorable day in the mystery and history of the Matobo Hills. This pristine guest house offers comfortable beds and is focused on guest comfort and ease. A delicious full English breakfast is served daily. At the end of the day, guests are invited to relax and enjoy a sundowner in the hospitable restaurant pub or watch the sunset from the verandah across the delightful garden, before enjoying an optional homely dinner enjoyed by many and available on request. All rooms are twin bed and have access to DSTV as well as self serve tea and coffee facilities with the choice of either shower or bath. Internet access is also available. Visit The Musketeers Lodge where the hosts pride themselves on personal service and friendly staff and depart having experienced the home of "True Zimbabwean Hospitality!" ... more less
