Many thanks to Bright and his team, who made our stay a special and fabulous one. The services where excellent, the environment was quiet and peaceful. The accommodation was unique and sweet, my wife absolutely loved it. The chalets are a man made wonder and the food was amazing....Thanks to you Bright and your team we had a wonderful stay at Musangano Lodge!

We have been using Musangano Lodge as a company since 2009. It has been our home away from home. Its not just the tranquility, the views , the staff nor the lodges its the "feel;"After leaving our "Hectic Harare Hassles" behind there is no better place for us to rest even though we will be working. it is corporate, friendly and above all family friendly. To Bright and the whole team we say THANK YOU ! keep up the good work , we look forward to seeing you again very soon x

We stayed at Musangano Lodge last weekend as a group of 15 adults and children. Many thanks to Bright and his staff who worked very hard to accomodate all our needs. We stayed in 3 chalets and one of the larger families in a Lodge. All were very comfortable and clean. The food was of a very good standard and also had a childrens choice in the menu which was welcome. Journey into Mutare is about 20 minutes. We will certainly be back to stay here again.

We stay in Musangano Lodge during an October weekend, searching for a relaxing time and we couldn't chose better. The chalets are well equipded, the landskape is fantastic and the pool well maintained. The staff is welcoming and the food is great. A place to return for sure. Thanks for your kindness and professional staff.

In August this year I visited Musangano Lodge for a second time. I looked forward to returning as it gave me another opportunity to test my fitness level by climbing up again to the highest point on the property, the beacon. The views from up there are spectacular. I recommend the Lodge to those who enjoy outdoor exercising like walking and biking. The Lodge has put together (mountain) bike tours in the area around them and supplies maps so that you easily find your way around. The Lodge furthermore offers a lot to those who want a break and relax: there is a large pool area, stunning views from the porch of your unit and excellent accommodation. I am looking forward to my next stay..

This lodge is very well run and looked after,, the German owner has a real eye for detail and cleanliness.
The internet is excellent,, food is great and people greet us with smiles,, unlike Mozambican attitude which is different.

Its clean and lodges have beautiful views (ask for lodges on hill)
There is aslo a generator when lights go out.
Please remember to call ahead though to make sure there is hot water in your room.

All and all this is a brilliant place to stay and the owners are to be respected for carrying on when many others have given up on zim.
