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.

A little piece of paradise in Bulawayo. Well equipped lodges in a beautiful natural setting. Plenty of birds and the odd rock rabbit. Lovely swimming pool. Friendly Staff. Close to Bulawayo and the Matopos. Great value for money.

This self catering lodge is one of the best lodges I have been to. The lodges are nested within bushes, you won't believe you are in the city. Great location approximately 15min from town and quiet surroundings. The bedroom was a bit tight for me but adequate. This lodge is good for relaxing over the weekend or when taking time off. Overall I loved the space and will definitely visit again, my stay was too short.

We stayed at Granite Park Lodges from March 31 to April 7, 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lodges and the grounds are very beautiful. The location is a bit out of the way, so having your own vehicle would be best, but we managed without one. A Taxi ride from the lodges to downtown was $10.00 US. We were picked up by Black Rhino Safaris to do a tour of Matabos National Park from the lodges, as well.
BEDS: The master bedroom had a very firm bed for our first night's stay and with a problematic back, that was not at all good for me. Gail and Lemic went out of their way to have me test out the mattresses in the other lodges (they were all empty on our 2nd day there) and choose the softest/best one for my back. Felt just like Goldilocks : ) With great care, the bed and pillows were made much more comfortable for the rest of our stay (they very thankfully traded around the mattresses from a different lodge for us). Thank You!!!
KITCHEN: We stayed 7 nights so we made full use of the kitchen and it could use a few more utensils. A little bit of a problem with tiny ants on the cupboards, but this is Africa, so we just made very sure to clean everything up very carefully to help keep them away.
BATHROOM: Clean. Hot Water, good pressure. All a person needs. Very Basic toiletries provided.
AREA: Very Pretty, Residential. Mostly quiet, except for occasional barking dogs.
BEDROOMS: Main bedroom on main floor with twin beds made into King and then a loft area with two twin beds which was perfect for our adult daughter. Stayed in "Family Lodge".
Definitely would recommend staying here if you need accommodations at the south end of Bulawayo.
