Easy to find well appointed and friendly. The two bedroom lodges are great with private braai area and deep bush feel. Swimming clean and safe for kids (no attendant though so adult must be there at all times). Food was absolutely fine and choice wide including comprehensive kids menu. Drinks were cheap with a wide choice and we were made...

After arriving late to Musangano Lodge the kitchen was still able to provide us with a delicious dinner. Chalets with nice firm beds which made for a great nights sleep and we pulled the curtains to absorb the breath-taking views in the morning. The breakfast was spectacular with make your own muesli, fresh fruit, and a full cooked spread fit...

I really enjoyed my time at Musangano, the only negative points were that the beds could have been a little softer and a little more choice on the TV. Otherwise it was peaceful and beautiful and I enjoyed the staff and felt very secure.

Such a tranquil place and a nice scenery from the family room. Great place to take a couple of nights away from cities. Unfortunately not much interesting activities for the kids to keep them busy more than a day.

We stayed at Musangano for 7 nights. A mother of 80 years old and het son and daughter. We loved being close to Mutare still being in a very quiet setting. Both breakfast and dinner were really good. Breakfast choice offered a healthy fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals choice as well as English breakfast. The various hiking tracks on the terrain...

This was my 3rd visit to Musangano, my 2nd with my two teenage daughters. I love the tranquillity and simplicity. I also love it because these very things allow me some special time with my girls and it’s only 3 hours from Harare. There is no wi-fi in the lodges or chalets. It’s only available at reception. Reading through recent...
