Vumba Botanical Reserve
About Monagera Cottage
Monagera Cottage is situated in the Vumba, a small part of the long chain of mountains that define the eastern border of Zimbabwe. The location lies on the edge of Mutare which is the provincial capital of Manicaland. It is a favourite getaway for the Harare business and political elite.
Monagera Cottage is a quaint cottage with a veranda, a kitchen, a dining room and a lounge. There are two bedrooms; the one room has a double bed and the other has twin beds. The family bathroom is shared between the two rooms. The cottage has stunning views of the sunrise. There is also a caravan that can sleep two extra guests and a caretaker lives on the premises.
The area is a mixture of gorgeous scenery, casino hotels, golf courses and tucked away country lodges and hotels with a distinctly non-African style.
All customers have to go to the central office, called Hivu Nursery to collect the keys and guests are then told in which direction their cottage is. All cottages are within a 5 km radius in the upper Vumba, the office is at the 27km peg on the main Vumba road and is 5 kms before Leopard Rock hotel.
