Although the purpose of staying here is obviously to explore the Great Zimbabwe World Heritage Site, guests also have the use of a swimming pool, tennis court and volleyball pitch. These are a short 2 minute walk from the main hotel complex. There are also two curio shops, where you can buy interesting gifts for friends and family back home.
The Great Zimbabwe Hotel is also able to host conferences. There are two conference rooms – a smaller venue for up to 100 delegates, and a larger venue for up to 250 delegates. Standard equipment includes TV, VCR/ DVD, overhead projectors, white boards and flip charts. The close proximity of the Great Zimbabwe World Heritage Site also makes the Great Zimbabwe Hotel a very popular wedding venue in Zimbabwe.
You won’t find accommodation closer to the Great Zimbabwe Monument than the Great Zimbabwe Hotel. They are located less than a kilometer from Zimbabwe’s famous World Heritage Site and offer you the opportunity to see as much of this remarkable place as possible. The Great Zimbabwe Hotel is only 20km from Masvingo.
The Great Zimbabwe Hotel offer spacious and comfortable accommodation in 38 rooms – single rooms and double rooms (with twin beds or a double bed). In addition, we offer a family suite, a deluxe suite and a number of standard suites in nearby satellite buildings. The rooms all overlook a courtyard with lush gardens. The suites and rooms are all en-suite and are equipped with tea/ coffee facilities, telephone, digital satellite TV and hairdryer. Room service is available from 07:00 to 21:30 and a laundry service is available for the convenience of guests. It is therefore not surprising that celebrities such as Nelson Mandela and Queen Elizabeth II have stayed with us before. The Great Enclosure Restaurant serves delicious a la carte and buffet menus. The décor in the restaurant echoes the distinctive stonework of the Zimbabwe Ruins, and the service is warm and friendly. The Cocktail Bar serves a full selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as a snack menu. If you are visiting for the first time, remember to ask for the Great Zimbabwe Rocks cocktail. If you are planning a day trip, you can ask for a packed breakfast and lunch.
The hotel also offer a number of guided tours to the Great Zimbabwe monument, with expert guides explaining the origins and history and eventual decline of the city, the various trading routes as well as religious and social practices of the once thriving community in Zimbabwe. You can also visit the nearby Lake Mutirikwi for a peaceful cruise or fishing, or go on a game drive in the Lake Mutirikwi Recreational Park. A sunset cruise on Lake Mutirikwi is an unforgettable experience.
