Why we love Matobo Hills!

A stunning location with amazing views and a very cool big pool. Located quite close to the hills where Cecil John Rhodes was buried, it is quite a drive from the Rhino sanctuary. Annette is a superb manager and nothing is too much to ask.

Client Reviews

  • Amazing staff

    We spent two nights at Matobo Hills Lodge just after Christmas and wow. An incredible hideaway that kept us busy and let us relax completely at the same time. A standout was the staff who were so genuine, always greeting you and helping where they can, the best service I witnessed while I was in Zimbabwe. Delicious food and the most beautiful lodges. Would 10/10 recommend – it was the best couples getaway.

  • Amazing!!

    Great for that quiet(no phone, no wifi) getaway where you just enjoy nature, a beautiful surrounding and great company.
    Their rooms are topnotch, always clean, spacious and beautiful. The service is absolutely brilliant. The staff is fast to respond, always smiling and friendly.
    Loved the food too and the chef pays attention to detail.

    Beautiful place to be in Zimbabwe with good scenery and rocky mountains. The service is very good, the staff is professional and friendly such that you feel like family. The lodge has great architecture of ancient African huts with world class standards.
