Lodge At The Ancient City

Masvingo, Zimbabwe

Situated upon a wooded granite outcrop close to Great Zimbabwe is Lodge At The Ancient City.

The lodge offers the opportunity for a unique and exciting getaway. Located 3km from the National Monuments, the lodge was built with care, taking from the design of the National Monuments to ensure that it is in harmony with immediate surroundings and captures and reflects the essence of Great Zimbabwe itself.

The Lodge integrates seamlessly with the surrounding trees and boulders of the site with dry stonewalling and soaring thatch structures.

The impressive stone and thatch lounge is set high upon a granite outcrop with huge boulders forming the main part of the overall architecture.

Meal times may vary depending on the game drives and the season but usually are at a set time. A broad selection of dishes are served in the thatched dining hall or open air summerhouse, depending on the season.

The Lodge at the Ancient City can provide guides to take guests on trips through the ancient capital of Zimbabwe. The beginnings, architecture, trading routes, social, religious practices and the reasons for the regions decline are all discussed.

Also available are drives and walks around the nearby lake Mutirikwi, recreational park and into adjacent tribal areas. Guests can also book trips to see some of the local wild life including white rhinoceros, hippo, crocodile and various antelope and bird species.
