“A good stop on the Great North Road”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

We stayed there a couple of nights in August. We didn't planned to stop there. We had been obliged by a mechanical problem with our vehicle (rented).
After we spent a night in the middle of nowhere about 30kms from Forest Inn due to the engine problem, we reckoned there was a lodge close to Mkushi, Forest Inn. We were towed there the day after and we decided to stay there waiting for a new vehicle subsitution.
The lodge is very nice, it's located within a very well managed "forest", very clean and relaxing. There is also a campsite just in the middle of the park.
The restaurant is not bad, very basic although aligned with african standards. Personnel is very nice and helpful.
Also rooms are very basic and would deserve some maintenance.
For sure it's not a top market lodge and it canot be compared with lodges in the major parks. But for sure it can be taken ion serious consideration for a stop there, a good stay at a fair price.

Forest Inn is perfectly situated half way between Harare and the Tanzania border for those self drive travelers.
The property is in the most beautiful natural forest right on the main road with well apointed, reasonably priced rooms and a camp site.
The retuarant menu is prety comprehensive, the food good and afordably priced.
The Forest Inn is great value, friendly efficient service in a very convinient location.

Room Tip: The traffic on the main road can be a little noisy at night so look for a room as far back from the...
