In 1996 the original Farm Homestead was converted into a Restaurant, bar and lodge reception. Now known as The Farmhouse , it is located 48Kms from Bulawayo on the Matopos road, in the heart of the Matopos World Heritage site.

The restaurant veranda overlooks the indigenous garden and rock swimming pool, where guests can relax by the poolside or spend the evening around the open campfire in the enclosed traditional boma. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served in the restaurant, where our chefs specialize in healthy, home cooked meals. On somedays we we offer a Braai dinner. Enjoy food cooked on an open fire whilst sitting outdoors on a warm evening under the stars.

Guests are accommodated in 12 thatched, Cape Dutch style cottages, which are built on the fringe of a majestic granite outcrop. Each individual cottage has a twin bedded, bedroom, en-suite shower, toilet and wash-hand basin, open plan lounge with tea/coffee facilities and fridge.

The Farmhouse Lodge and Restaurant provides the ideal location from which visitors can discover the many natural wonders of the Matopos. Guests can participate in the many activities offered at the Lodge or arrange their own trips in the area.
