Tucked away on the lower slopes of a tree-covered hillside in the Eastern district of Zimbabwe lies a delightful little leisure resort known by the name of MUSANGANO LODGE- 'the place where people meet.'
Whether you are looking for a weekend retreat to relax with family and friends or want to have a conference in quiet surroundings, Musangano Lode offers a comprehensive range of facilities that will suit your requirements.
Spaced well apart for privacy, our splendid accommodation blends well into the Miombo mountain woodland and creates a warm ethnic ambience. Guests may choose between self catering lodges for families and larger groups or smaller chalets for two.
Our cosy dining room and the spacious garden restaurant have acquired a reputation for serving delicious food, be it a full breakfast, a light lunch or a table d'hote three-course dinner.
Musangano Lodge offers its guests a fine range of exciting outdoor activities and is ideally located for exploring the attractions of the Eastern Highlands.
Musangano Lodge offers spacious accommodation under thatch for up to 32 guests in well equipped lodges and chalets. All units are tastefully furnished, of a high finish and decorated in ethnic style to create a homely and cosy atmosphere. They are well-spaced for privacy and yet only a few minutes away from the restaurant and reception area. From the covered porches visitors will appreciate the spectacular views across the broad Odzi River Valley towards the dramatic granite ramparts of the Eastern Highlands. Linen and guest amenities provided.
Musangano Lodge offers its guests a fine range of exciting outdoor activities, from swimming and games, nature walks and birdwatching, to hiking and biking or day trips to some of the special attractions of the Eastern Highlands. The resort is situated in natural woodland 20km west of the little border town Mutare, 1 000 metres above sea level and at the foot of a range of hills which rise behind it to 1 240 metres.
It is a great place to spend a family holiday. The big swimming pool has an adjacent safe paddling section for children. It is surrounded by a large sunbathing area with gazebos, offering shady spots from which to watch the children splashing in the the pool. Nearby there is an exciting Robinson adventure playground and wide expanses of lawn where the kids can romp around or play games such as badminton, table tennis or volley-ball.
Nature Trails and Hiking Trails
The natural woody vegetation around Musangano Lodge is known as Miombo woodland. There are three colour-marked nature and hiking trails on the 140 hectare property. The VALLEY WALK takes you over fairly level ground behind the Lodge along a seasonal stream. The SECRET VALLEY TRAIL leads up past the Lodge's water reservoir and from there via a high point with lovely views back down along a pretty hidden valley where clusters of aloes flower during the winter months. The SUMMIT TRAIL first crosses a stretch of seasonally wet grassland before ascending towards the summit of the ridge to the south of the Lodge. From the top the hiker enjoys all-round views towards ragged mountain chains dozens of miles away. When early morning mists cover the valleys or when the sun sets in a cloud-studded sky, there is pure magic in the air.
Bike Routes and Mountain Bike Trails
We have identified several biking routes, varying from 10 to 65 kilometers in length. The main bike route takes riders towards the Nyanga Highlands and can be covered in 3 hours. Mountain bike trails vary from 10 to 28km in length, the shortest one being eminently suitable for children and beginners.
Places of Interest Nearby
Musangano Lodge is well placed for day visits to a number of interesting Eastern Highlands attractions, such as rock art sites, the nearby Osborne Dam, the border town of Mutare, and the magnificent Bvumba Mountains. Furthermore, visitors can explore the Nyanga downs and montane forests with its crystalline mountain streams and many prehistoric dry-stone structures.
