Guests are accommodated at Hermits Peak Guest Lodge which is situated on a wildlife reserve within the Granite Hills of the Matopos. Hermits peak was the first private lodge in the Matopos established in the 1950s. The design of the lodge keeps it nestled unobtrusively in the magnificent granite landscape, and is subtly disguised by its' earthy colors.
Although it has a beautiful natural setting and striking surrounds, many of the remarkable aspects of Hermit's Peak are things you can't see. Situated within the Matopos World Heritage site, it is home to the black and white rhino, black eagles and the elusive leopard.
Ten ensuite rooms and dining/bar Lapa surround the natural rock pool, and the indigenous Aloe garden attracts a wide variety of birdlife. All meals can be provided from healthy early morning breakfasts to open air braai dinners. In harmony with the environment, Hermits Peak is as green as can be.
Zimsafaris offers a variety of tours into the Matopos National Park. The highlight of a visit to the Matopos is the chance to track and walk to view Rhino in their natural habitat. Lead by a licensed Professional Guide, visitors get the unique opportunity to approach these endangered species on foot. This is considered one of the top natural Wildlife experiences in Africa.
The Matopos was declared a World Heritage site primarily because of the Bushman Cave Paintings. With over 3000 sites recorded, the Matopos is considered to have the largest number and the most elaborate Cave Paintings in the World. Guides will take you to visit the Cave Painting sites and to Rhodes Grave and Worlds view which gives insight into the recent history of King Lobengula, the Ndebele people and the colonialists.
Zimsafaris takes you through the spectacular scenery to discover the many unique attractions of the Park.
