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.
