Garda Lodge was built in 1998, on 3800 square metres of land. The property offers a swimming pool, a gym, Wi-Fi Internet and a generator to ensure a constant electrical supply. The lodge is located 6 km from Bulawayo City Centre, on the road to Matopos National Park.

We offer accommodation in rooms with a double bed or two single beds. Each room has a private bathroom, a TV, a ceiling fan, a coffee machine and an outside veranda with seating. You can relax in the comfort of your room and enjoy the surrounding atmosphere. The rooms are serviced daily.

Some shops and a petrol station are located just opposite our entrance. The Cresta Churchhill Hotel is located a few metres from our lodge and it offers a very nice pub and a very good restaurant.

5 Reviews on Garda Lodge

Just 10 minutes outside of town, Daniella and her husband provide a relatively inexpensive and value-oriented respite for travelers making a way station of Bulawayo. I reserved a small room and was able to get a second bed. The rooms are incredibly clean, and are appointed with carpeting, decent beds, wicker furniture and ample lighting. There are also a couple wicker chairs on the veranda of the rooms. The shower I used had amazing water pressure and had HOT water. Daniella's husband made breakfast the following morning, served in a weather-proofed Boma across the courtyard. I didn't have the guts to try the pool in winter, though it looked great for kids. The free wifi signal was great, though of course the throughput was probably less than 1Mb, so was pokier than the speeds my 3G phone was able to pick up. All in all, Garda was a great choice, and I'll recommend it to friends and fellow travelers.

Friendly and hospitable. Had a quiet and relaxing stay and had no problems with electricity or water. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Enjoyed my time there.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Garda Lodge. Daniela and Enrico couldn't have been more welcoming. The facilites were great and it suited us very well. Would definately go back to stay.

What a beautiful place! It's centrally located, as a base, and we managed to tour most of the Zim places. Security, staff and owners are incomparable. A definite visit in future.
