Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bushman Rock Safaris is located a mere 40 minutes from Harare City Center. Unique to Zimbabwe it is the only lodge located on a working commercial vineyard and winery. The vineyards are located within a 750 hectare private wildlife reserve with 13 species of plains game released onto the reserve including Buffalo, Giraffe and Zebra. The Bushman Rock Polo Club overlooks the vineyards and with over 20 polo ponies guests are able to watch and even partake in the "sport of kings". The network of thatched lodges lie hidden among tall indigenous trees overlooking the vineyards, lake and out onto the wildlife reserve. Each lodge offers complete privacy and consists of one King bedroom and one Twin bedroom. All king bedrooms having en-suite bathrooms and outdoor showers and all twin rooms have en-suite shower rooms with both internal and outdoor showers. Each lodge has a lounge and veranda with tea and coffee facilities and bar fridges. The lounges all have fireplaces making it ideal for cold winter evenings. The rooms are basically appointed with the natural architectural elements such as artistically designed polished concrete floors, exposed local granite stonework and traditional thatching forming the central focus to the rooms. ... more   less
