Not ideal for more than a night's stay.
The gentleman who received us was very kind throughout our stay. We we however not allowed to use their kitchen facilities. We had booked for a two day stay (without the option of breakfast). After enquiring about the availability of a communal kitchen, the kind gentleman (whose name I forgot) showed us a kitchen which he said had enough stoves and facilities. But while preparing our breakfast, a lady (who appears to run the place) walked in and informed us that the owner did not allow us to use the kitchen. If we were not buying their breakfast, using the kitchen would incur further costs for the use of gas, water and dish washing liquid etc. She could not tell us how much these extra costs would amount to. We found this unreasonable since this information was not disclosed to us before hand seeing that this place is far from civilisation and any form of restaurants.

Bulawayo and Motopos
Very nice lady and Esau at reception. I was the only one in the whole lodge. Very nice place. They do not offer Dinner or Breakfast, so make sure you have something to eat before you arrive.... Bulawayo is a big place! and the lodge is quite far from town.... but I had a good time there.
Autumn is a very nice season in Zim and Bulawayo has beautiful flowers. Would like to see the Jacarandas in spring! Matopos not too far from lodge and 10/10 in Autumn colours.
