Granite Park Lodges is a little resort paradise consisting of four, thatched, self contained holiday lodges in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Located just 10 minutes from the central business district, this Bulawayo accommodation provides easy access to all the City’s main attractions. Set in lush, tranquil surroundings of unspoilt, indigenous vegetation and majestic granite kopjies (hills), Granite Park Lodges is only 30 minutes from the Matobo National Park. There is a picturesque waterfall cascading into a natural swimming pool for your pleasure. It is here that the Dassies may show themselves whilst basking on one of the granite outcrops. All our lodges have a separate double bedroom, bathroom, teak fitted kitchen including fridge and stove, and are fully equipped. Our family lodges have an additional loft floor with two twin beds and are capable of accommodating up to six people with ease.

We were in Bulawayo for Christmas in 2013. Had booked the lodges with our extended family, and we weren't disappointed! What a piece of paradise it was! Kids loved swimming in the gorgeous pool, exploring the land, finding the resident sheep and seeking out tortoises and giant African snails! The lodges are all excellently appointed, with EVERYTHING you could want - satellite TV, room safes, house alarm, ample parking, shaded patio, private BBQ, ceiling fans, supreme kitchens - fully equipped etc. Absolutely everything worked too - a distinction for Zimbabwe! Super clean, manicured gardens, excellent staff too.

Thank you to Clive and Gail for making our Bulawayo experience so great!

My wife and I stayed at Granite Park Lodges in November and absolutely loved it!
We used them as a base to explore Zimbabwe and stayed there for a total of 10 nights during our 25 day holiday.
Bulawayo is an excellent location from which to explore the rest of Zimbabwe and the Lodges make for an ideal rest and retreat inbetween the adventures.
The staff are wonderfully helpful and there are many birds and animals simply wandering around the lodges. Just ask the owners Clive and Gail for some true African stories and you will not be disappointed!
The lodges themselves are extremely comfortable and offer great value compared to other locations we stayed at.
We will definitely return.

There are 4 beautifully designed lodges in a peaceful and lovely garden with idyllic dip pool. Gail is a super friendly host who helped us with all out travel plans and was a joy to meet - so quiet and safe - self catering so feels like home from home

We discovered this hidden gem on our family tour of Zimbabwe. We wanted to explore the Matopos National Park and found this lodge online. It is on the edge of Bulawayo and I wasn't sure what to expect, but what transpired was a charming and well appointed property with 4 lodges set in beautiful African Gardens. The thatched lodges are well built, clean and functional whilst remaining attractive.

We explored the Matopos area, which is certainly worth a visit, but also had a look around Bulawayo which was nicer than I had imagined.

Definitely worth planning in if you are putting a trip together.

We stayed over at granite park lodge for 3 nights over Christmas and I must say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had booked 1 times family room and 2x double twin bed lodges. On arrival me were met by Lemeck who was very helpful and quickly processed us and showed us our lodges. The lodges we clean and tastefully well presented. Lemeck was always at hand during our stay should if we ever needed him. This place is amazing, lovely pool area and the boma was perfect for our Christmas lunch. Mrs Moore the owner was very helpful and welcomed us which was very nice. The beds are comfortable and clean. Location is amazing. 10 min drive into town and the closest grocery shop is less than 5 mins away. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Bulawayo. No doubt I'll sure be back.

We stumbled across Granite Park when our eldest son started boarding school near Bulawayo five years ago and we needed accommodation for the "floating" weekends we could spend when visiting. Granite Park has a beautiful tranquility about it, Clive and Gail Moore (the owners) leave their personal touch in every way and the natural surroundings and clever design of each of the lodges really add to the experience. The children have loved the pool set into its natural granite setting and the space around us give a wonderful sense of being out in the bush. I would rate it best value for money and best quality in Bulawayo, we have stayed at other lodges but nothing ticks the box like this.

This was quite simply the best B&B / Guest house I have ever visited, no if's, no buts.

The setting is wonderful, the furnishings way beyond what is required, the staff and owners wonderful, and the finished product ...... truly amazing.

This time we happened to be passing through Bulawayo so stayed there, next time in Zim we will work our trip around a few nights here.

If it weren't for Zim's troubles there would be a very long waiting list to stay at a place like this, with a price tag to match.

This is a great place to rest and relax. We spent two nights here in June 2014 and wish we had booked more. The rondawels are a pleasure to be in, they are well equipped, comfortable and peaceful. It being winter the pool was green, but we didn't want to swim anyway. The views from the rocky outcrops are spectacular and the grounds are well maintained. If you love Bulawayo and you come here often you have to try this place. The road from the Plumtree Road is a bit Zimbabwe and needs maintenance, but Granite Park is a breathe of fresh air.

we had the privilege of staying at Granite Park Lodges over Christmas 2013 and what a wonderful time it was......the lodges are extremely comfortable and well cared for, everything you need or could ask for in comfort and convenience. Hosts Gail and Clive, and their staff, made our stay and we could not have felt more welcome or at home or had better care and attention to everything, from comfy beds and accommodation to our laundry being taken care of. It was a time for relaxing and enjoying one of the best places we stayed at during our 2 month tour of Southern Africa and it was an experience we will never forget.......we would fully recommend it to everyone.
