As we walked to the bar area past the restaurant, it was refreshing to come across the pool area where one can refresh or lie on a day bed in the African sun and get a tan, before we were met by Onius who welcomed us with cold glasses of water.
We sat with him and he spoke to us about the culture and history of the place we were in, and his experience of working at the Lodge as assistant manager. It was good to share laughs here and there and get to know more about Matobo Hills Lodge. The bar area has drinks for sale and very comfortable chairs to sit on whilst catching up with the outside world on social media as this is where the Wifi is accessible from.
We left afterwards to have a look at our room, one of the 4 double rooms available. In addition to these double rooms are the 3 family rooms and 11 twin rooms which complete the Lodge.
I enjoyed our room, my feet were longing to get out of the shoes and if felt so good to step on the soft carpet. Our room like all the others was ensuite with tub and shower. We had a tea and coffee station which was convenient and lastly a ceiling fan which was much needed on that day.
Other pleasures in the room include charging ports, a dressing table for the ladies and a wardrobe which helps much for a long stay.
