Reviewed 20 September 2016

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.

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...
