This is the second time we have stayed at the Frog and Fern in Chimaninimani. Each of the individual cottages are full of character (and well equipped) and the hosts Jane and Dee give lots of advise on local history and walks. They helped us by arranging for porters to carry our 4 days packs up Bailey's Folly and took us to base camp by car and collected us 4 days alter with cold drinks and no mention of how we looked or smelt! The original art work (mostly by Dee) in each cottage adds to the beauty of the accommodation and the fireplaces keep everyone cosy in the evenings. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and I am planning my next visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Frog & Fern Cottages are within walking distance of Bridal Veil Falls and the Chimanimani Village. The cottages are like home. Crockery, cutlery, pots and everything you need to relax for a few days. Bring your food and drinks. The camp site is just as homely and has plug points as well as private boma fire, shower and toilet. Only one group of campers at a time. So no worries about possible noisy camping neighbours. ... more less
