There is camping facilities as well as a few twin, double and some multi bed rooms. Rooms are comfortable and the shared bathrooms are clean. Wifi available at a reasonable rate is is usually reliable, more than the town electricity supply. The property is located ten minutes from the centre of Bulawayo. It is owned and run by Adam and his wife. They are super friendly and hospitable. Could only have positive things to say about the service.

I’ve had a wonderful time at Burke’s Paradise. Accommodation was excellent. I loved my swims in the pool, hot showers and restful moments in the hammock. It was hard to leave Paradise and go back to the real world. I highly recommend this beautiful place!!

Set quife far off the road in the grounds of an old country house. Camping facilities pretty basic, with weak cold (later) showers but quite clean facilities. Pool really grubby with ancient dirty cushions. Cooking facities available with fridge and freezer. WiFi $3 per day and good powerful signal. No bar available although they advertise one. Overall pretty basic.

Swimming pool, clean, honor system for the wi-fi, great hosts. Good shade trees for the tents. The location is a bit small however and it seems the tents were on top of one another. The staff is very welcoming. Not very close to downtown so one has to take a taxi from there is they want to visit it. Also good to place to visit the Great Zimbabwe from - only 1.5 hours away.

When arriving we were greeted by a lovely little dog and the owner who was really friendly and welcoming. We were shown to our chalets which have the most fantastic view of a pond feature that crosses through the garden. The rooms were lovely and the beds were comfortable. I’d recommend to anyone visiting this town.
