Accommodation at Bushman Rock

Whether you are looking for a fun-filled break charged with activities and action or are looking for a slightly less pressured atmosphere to unwind and relax Bushman Rock’s Valley View Lodges are the ideal destination for you. Nestled in the granite outcrops above the Nyamasanga River, 40 minutes from Harare, the Lodge affords breath-taking views over the Bushman Rock. Hidden amongst tall indigenous trees, the thatched lodges offer complete privacy and seclusion.

The manicured gardens and rolling lawns provide the perfect setting for the quiet contemplation of nature. The surrounding Msasa woodland provides cool shade from which to watch the polo ponies in training or the wildfowl at play on the river. As our name suggests, the lodge affords stunning views of the valley and vineyards beyond. You may even glimpse antelope or giraffe feeding in the distant savannahs. If the strong African sun becomes too intense, you can cool down in the sparkling pool or grab a book from the library and relax under the trees.

Despite being so close to Harare, modern day life seems so remote; there are no TVs in the lodges and the complimentary Internet is restricted to the central lodge. Due to the lack of signal, your mobile phone will remain silent and the only message tone you will hear is the beating of the evening drums as they announce the serving of dinner. If something more than relaxing under a tree is required then our unique range of activities will ensure that all your action requirements are met.
