Nestled in the Bvumba Mountains - part of the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe, the Leopard Rock Hotel provides an extraordinary fusion of natural beauty and world class hospitality. Its old world charm and its internationally acclaimed 18 hole PGA golf course as well as numerous activities which can help you connect with its exceptional surrounds make it an ideal getaway. No wonder the Queen Mother described it this way, "There is nowhere more beautiful in Africa."

We have always wanted to visit this hotel and decided to book a night en route to Mozambique. We had a lovely room with all the comforts and a lovely view of the gardens. It was so sad to see how empty the hotel was and maybe because it is possibly not frequented that regularly,

Serene hotel set in magical surroundings with amazing bird life & views. No visit is complete with out a game of golf or walk/ caddy cart around the beautiful course. The staff are friendly and keen to assist when ever possible.

Stayed at Leopard Rock Hotel 23-27/22/18. A right Eden. A statuesque hotel set in lush greens! The staff, from groundsmen to reception to rooms to restaurant to poolside to activities desk give new meaning to the term ‘hospitable’! Kudos. Notable are Lazarus (reception area)

We visited for 5 nights of golf and birdwatching with the family, having last visited before the economic meltdown our expectations were low. We were very happy that the hotel still has the old charm and, under the harsh economic circumstances, still offers a quality product.

Response from 5StarVagabond, Owner at Leopard Rock Hotel
Responded Dec. 13, 2018
Thank you for your kind feedback and average. We are glad you felt the hotel had not lost its charm and met shout expectations. We are very sorry you were disappointed by our golf course. I am not sure why you felt our course has taken a turn for the worse. It may be that the greens were somewhat undulating due to a mixture of Poa and bent grass. The chemicals are in foreign currency at $500 per liter and we need permission to import. Most other courses in Zimbabwe are 100% Poa and are cheaper to upkeep. The golf course remains in the same condition it was before we took over as new owners. In fact it has according to experts significantly improved from the time our last greenskeeper left. Nothing has changed and we remain the most spectacularly laid out golf course in Africa.

Stunning, old style hotel tucked in a magnificent environment on the Vumba mountain close to Mutare. Surprising, but magnificent weather which can shift from full sun to mist and drizzle in a few hours. The rooms are large, neat and cozy. And no TV to ensure you settle in the

"Request a room with a view."
"Front rooms have a beautiful view but can be extremely noisy with children in the pool & garden."
"Some rooms have balcony's - stunning view out front. Back rooms probably quieter if you like lie-ins or afternoon naps!"
"Higher floors for the view!"
"A room over the pool and gardens and view of the mountains and valleys."
