Project Description

Norma Jeane’s is set in the granite hills and Msasa woodland overlooking Lake Mutirikwe (Lake Kyle), which offers some of the best bass fishing in Southern Africa. The Great Zimbabwe Ruins, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are only a ten minute drive away.

The lodge has 8 hotel rooms, with en-suite bathrooms, and private balconies with views across Lake Mutirikwi.

Ideal for the family getaway or fishing weekend, Norma Jeane’s also has 4 fully equipped and furnished self-catering lodges.

You may also have a barbeque outside on your own veranda / braai place.
