We stayed at Hornbill to chill out after 5 days on a Houseboat and 6 days in Mana Pools to prepare for the flight back to Harare and then to the UK. The facilities, rooms, food, hospitality were all first class and would thoroughly recommend a stay at this fabulous lodge. We didn't do too much here except visit the dam wall - well organised by Sunny the owner - as this was not our intention. We found the lodge to be a very relaxing place with great views over the lake. The room we were in was expertly designed to be cool with an open front to capture the breeze. It was really nice to stay somewhere with a stone bathroom after 6 days with open tented facilities. My only suggestion would a mini-bar in the room to save Sunny the legwork serving drinks during the day.
