Camp Amalinda is situated in an ancient Bushmen's shelter in the Matobo Hills, a Unesco world heritage site. The hill's stunning scenery and geological formations have been home to humans for more than 40,000 years. Remnants of this history can be seen in the profusion of rock art that is found in the area. The camp consists of nine individually thatched rooms and two honeymoon suites, designed and built around the rocks themselves. All accommodations are tastefully decorated and furnished with African themes and colours against a background of the rock itself. The suites also incorporate historical memorabilia connected to Zimbabwe's past.
The camp's lounge and bar area provide panoramic views out over the hills and the Matobo National Park while meals are served alfresco on the camps large teak dining table. There is also a camp library and games room, while, at the base of the...
Located in south-eastern Linkwasha Concession of the Hwange National Park, Davison's Camp is a fine example of a simple, well run bush camp. Named after the founder of Hwange National Park and its first warden, Ted Davison, the camp lies nestled under a canopy of false mopane trees overlooking open plains and an active waterhole. Nine simple, yet comfortable, tented chalets are bright and airy with polished concreted floors covered with comfy rugs. A broad wooden partition separates the bedroom from the ensuite bathroom which features an indoor and outdoor shower and flushing toilet. Outside, a private concrete veranda offers panoramic views into the surrounding bush.
Both the tents and the separate main area, comprising a lounge, dining room, open campfire area and pool, look out over the waterhole, which is popular with elephants all year round, and in the summer months attracts a...
The majestic Nesbitt Castle is nestled in the quiet corner of Bulawayo's Hillside suburb and is the former private residence of early 20th-century pioneer Theodore Holdengarde. The Nesbitt Castle was restored and reopened as a boutique hotel in 1990 with the current owner, Digby Nesbitt, successfully recapturing the gothic and colonial eccentricity of his predecessor. Once through the narrow passageways and twisting staircases, guests will encounter nine individually styled bedrooms all with a colonial theme. These opulent rooms feature handcarved four-poster beds, heavily draped brightly coloured curtains and rugs, velvet covered day beds, dark wood furniture and cosy fireplaces. All rooms are en suite and feature air conditioning, ceiling fans, telephones and wireless internet access.

The historic Edwardian-style Victoria Falls Hotel is located amongst lush tropical gardens inside the Victoria Falls National Park, just a ten minute walk away from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Victoria Falls. Established in 1904, this original railway hotel is full of nostalgia of a bygone colonial era and is noted for the splendid views across the manicured gardens to the Victoria Falls Bridge.
There are 161 en suite rooms, comprising 37 standard rooms, 58 traditional rooms, 48 de luxe rooms, seven junior suites, four honeymoon suites, six executive suites and the royal suite. The latter was occupied by Queen Elizabeth during a royal visit in 1947.

Inside, the rooms retain their old world charm, but are now fitted with...
