Accommodation rating: Good Standard
The Lodge at the Ancient City is located on a granite ridge situated adjacent to the Great Zimbabwe ruins and boasting views across the Msasa valley to the Great Enclosure. The lodge has a natural style, integrating its buildings among boulders and trees in an attempt to recreate the mystic atmosphere of the nearby ruins. The 18 rooms follow suit, with high thatched roof ceilings criss-crossed by dark wood beams, and brightly coloured draped curtains complement the patterned stone carvings engraved in the cream coloured walls. All rooms are en suite and feature tea and coffee making facilities as well as mains electricity.
All meals at the lodge are table d'hôte with a wide selection of international cuisine and are served in either the thatched dining hall or the open-air summerhouse, depending on the season. Outside, guests can relax in the lush wooded gardens with views of the nearby Lake Mutirikwe. Other facilities available include an outdoor swimming pool, curio shop, tennis court and business centre.
