Take a few steps back in time to the era of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe when you enter the luxury Lodge at the Ancient City.
Built on a granite outcrop, the Lodge at the Ancient City has sweeping views of a valley filled with trees, and faces in the direction of the Great Zimbabwe monument, so that you can see the Great Enclosure with its famous Conical Tower from the Hotel. Lake Mutirikwi, the third largest man-made dam in Zimbabwe, can also be seen. The main complex and guest lodges at the lodge are built from stone and thatch, with structures of granite stonewalling capturing the atmosphere of Zimbabwe’s oldest UNESCO World Heritage Site.

At night the firelight and soft mbira music at the Lodge at the Ancient City create a magical atmosphere. You can enjoy meals in the open-air summer house, or, if the weather is not pleasant, in the thatched dining hall. Huge granite boulders, characteristic of the geology of many parts of this great house of stones, Zimbabwe, form part of the lounge and bar at the Lodge of the Ancient City.
