Hidden Gem in Bulawayo

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Mar 6, 2022
We spent couple of hours at the Granite Park Lodge with the family and its such a gem hidden in the heart of Bulawayo. Good destination for retreat, relax and unwind. It feels like a destination in Victoria falls.
The lodges are nice clean and made of tash roof.

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.

When we arrived without prior booking on a Sunday afternoon at their gate nobody answered the bell. So we tried the mobile phone number indicated at the gate and asked for a room. Only 5 minutes later Gayle came to meet us. As they had not expected guests the room was not yet ready but she cleaned it for us in record time.

And what a surprise! You don't just get a room but a house (therefore lodge). The lodge we had was very large and modern with beautiful wooden furniture, a large sitting room, a table for 4, a large equipped kitchen, a nice bathroom and a comfy bedroom with large mosquito net. The lodge was nice and cool even without aircon although it was very hot outside.

The garden and pool were great to relax, or you could stay at your private patio.

She also gave us tips where to find a good restaurant on a Sunday night. As we loved the place so much we decided to stay a make use of the braai provided.

The lodge offers good value for money and was among the two best accommodations on our 4-weeks trip in Zimbabwe.

If you want to go to Matopos I recommend to stay at Granite Lodges instead of Malema Restcamp which is very old and the mosquitos eat you up at night. From Bulawayo you can easily explore Matopos as a day trip.
