Genuine Hospitality That Money Cannot Buy
We travelled to Zimbabwe as a family of six adults and had booked in at Matopos Hills Lodge long before the petrol price problems occured in January 2019. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We contacted the lodge shortly before we left from NZ in February and were given the assurance that we would be safe and we would still have a great time.
At no time during our travels and stay at the lodge did we feel unsafe or worried about our safety.
From the time we were collected from the Bulawayo airport to the time we left for Vic Falls after three nights, we were treated by all staff as VIP’s and they even took time to get to know us by name
Matobo Hills management and staff did their best to cater to our specific needs such as arranging transport around Bulawayo for a morning for a nostalgic visit and transport to Vic Falls on the day we left
The rooms were spacious, very clean and comfortable in a beautiful tranquil setting. All staff were passionate about their work and the chef was fantastic.
If you are looking for a stereotypical day spa type resort you are looking for the wrong thing.
Instead go there and experience genuine hospitality that money cannot buy because it is exactly that – not made up because the workers have been told to do so but is part of who the people and it is something incredible to experience.
Also go respectfully recognising what an outstanding job they do even facing economic problems that make their job so much more difficult . Somehow they still deliver such outstanding hospitality.
If ever in africa again, we would definitely take a few days to revisit the Matopos and stay at the lodge. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you to all for a wonderful experience.

Perfect birthday celebration at Matobo Hills Lodge
I do not have the words to express how amazing Matobo Hills Lodge is. The staff … oh my God … professional, friendly … cannot believe the service is in Zimbabwe. The Chef … always always cooking delicious food that inspired and enhanced our experience. The scenic view…heavenly. And of course … a well stocked bar.
Thank you Matobo Hills Lodge for making my husband’s surprise birthday perfect! Will be back with my family and friends.
Exploring the beautiful Zimbabwe
This place was lovely. They went all out to make my evening amazing and even made me a surprise cake. My friends from Mozambique and Zambia were impressed to see this beautiful side to Zimbabwe.
I am planning another trip soon and this time I think I will be staying longer .
Thank you Matobo Hills Lodge.
Perfect weekend getaway in the wilderness
We loved the environment and the setting as soon as we set foot at the lodge.
Great staff on hand, pleasant, hospitable and always ready to extend a helping hand. Meals were delicious, particularly the dessert.
It’s a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of town life.
Enjoyed going up the mountain trail, great views from the granite mountain top. We regret spending only night, so I am sure another trip is on the books.
Overall, though short, it was a lovely experience!
Private getaway celebration
This was just what we needed. We wanted to get away from it all to celebrate a milestone in our family. We experienced great service, informative game drives and a fantastic rhino tracking experience! The rock scenery is unique and just awesome!
Feel the wild heartbeat of the Matobo Hills right here…
I spent 2 nights at Matobo Hills Lodge with 7 members of my family in mid August 2017. Quite frankly we were all absolutely delighted with the place. The setting right in amongst the imposing granite domes of this beautiful area is quite awe inspiring.
Wonderful setting in the African bush with cheerful helpful staff, wonderful rondaval rooms perched on rocks overlooking the Motobo Hills. Perfect – you could even get wifi in the main lounge. Please visit when you are next in the area. Thanks you one and all.
Excellent Stay at Matobo Hills
Stayed at the Lodge for a week – amazing setting! Visited Rhodes Grave and got to see some White Rhino nearby. The Chalets are clean and comfortable, but what makes the Lodge stand out is the friendly staff who cannot do enough for you, Had some reservations about visiting Zim – these were unfounded, a great country and lovely welcoming people – would visit again.
Matobo Hills Lodge is a must go place in Zimbabwe. Fantastic service, breathtaking panorama above the hill and tranquil. I wouldn’t trade my experience at Motobo Hills Lodge for any other. I highly recommend it.
