Had a great day in the serene surroundings with plenty game on the property including a tame zebra . The property is located deep in the matopos national park and has a pretty garden, swimming pool, restaurant and bar and accommodation. It's surely a good place to visit.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled with friends

Good to hear you enjoyed the horse-riding, we have had a few sightings of our baby giraffe on the rides and she is getting used to the horses coming close. Hope to welcome you back again someday!!

Great place to stay - friendly staff, great hospitality, good food and super place to stay at. Lots to see in the area and horses are in excellent condition. Hope the game reserve fence will be finished soon and they repopulate with a few more animals.
Great place to relax and enjoy the bueaty of the Matopas

Fantastic stay at a family run Farmhouse. Alaistar - eldest son - took us on a 4 wheel drive tour and showed us many interesting features of the property. Next morning I was talked into a horse ride through the property by my friend. Had not been on a horse for many many years - was one of the highlights of the whole african trip. We had 2 guides with us - walked - the whole way - and we were so close to the wilderbeast, zebras and giraffes. Lovely experience. The whole family went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Great food and staff too. Good luck - I hope the future developments bring alot of success - sounds exciting.

Having travelled in South Africa several times, i decided to visit Zimbabwe for the first time in 2011 and i could not have picked a more beautiful location to stay. The owners and staff were all fantastic and really friendly. My cottage was tucked away among the trees and was perfectly shaded from the heat of the midday sun, ideal for lazy afternoons reading. The farm itself was lovely and the game drives fascinating, with John and Alistair enthusiastically showing us their Giraffe and baby Wildebeest. Walks up to the tops of the enormous granite boulders/hills for sundowners were a real treat. The Farmhouse is ideally situated for access to the National Park and Bulawayo is only a stones throw away. I will absolutely be returning!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff were friendly and accommodating and it is a good location to travel to Matopos National Park - one of the highlights of our Zim trip - such a special place. The game viewing on horseback at the Farmhouse was also really great. Look forward to returning one day!
