Situated away from Mutare City, in the Vumba Mountain terraces, the Hotel was designed in an excellent aesthetic technique. The beautiful natural environment surrounding the Hotel complements the scenic massive hotel building and an amazing golf course. Visitors can also enjoy game viewing. The weather at this site is amazing, it is always raining. The eco-tourists would experience the rain-forest...

We loved our 2 night stay at this magnificent hotel! Sunset walks, enchanted Forrest walk, sundowners at the viewing platform, incredible service and food, wonderful bird life and animals! Golf course is in amazing condition, little playground for children, swimming pool etc. No hairdryer or tv in our room.

The rooms...

Just a wonder, between reality and dream... luxury, wild animals and breathtaking scenery!!! I visited the place for 1 day and the game park at sunset, admiring wild animals from the platform. I could not believe seeing giraffes, zebras, antilopes, guinea fowls, etc., eating and wandering in a astonishing natural beauty and sunset... A natural wonder!!!

Tucked away in the misty hills of Vumba, the place is magnificent. The rooms are nice with expensive old style fittings and furniture. the place is still being re-innovated so no televisions yet. The food is also good. However the staff is not very friendly and free and the wifi is very limited

I'm sorry to hear that your experience was not 100% satisfactory at the hotel. I would appreciate hearing more about the lack of cordial interactions with specific members of staff or their positions. This can be communicated to me on shasha at leopardrockhotel dot com.

The location of Leopard Rock is outstanding. The general ambience of the place is just great with lovely views and a relaxing feel. We were there briefly for site inspection and I wished we were booked to spend the night there.

Conferencing facilities at this hotel are unique. Couples from various cities had gathered for a marriage serminar. The rooms, dining and meals were amazing. Tennis courts are maintained and the golf course is just out of this world. Take walks or horse rides for a complete outing.

We had a great time this weekend away as a family. The staff were great and the wedding was really special. The beauty of the area and the hotel was breathtaking. Great value for money and definitely worth a repeat visit.
