Leopard Rock Hotel is more than a hotel; it is a welcoming and diverse holiday resort for travelers of all ages and backgrounds. The estate is situated 30 kilometers south-east of the city of Mutare, the capital city of Zimbabwe’s Manicaland Province, and can be reached by tar road out of Mutare through a spectacular route up into the Bvumba Mountains.
Leopard Rock Hotel was built and opened by the Seymour-Smiths, a well-known local family who decided after the Second World War that a need existed for a holiday hotel at the top of the Bvumba Mountains. Leopard Rock is in a truly magnificent setting and is the epitome of romance and elegance with all the rooms decorated in a French Chateaux style. The hotel has 58 rooms and a beautiful Honeymoon Suite. Also sporting one of Africa’s top 10 best golf courses, it is truly a spectacular place to visit.
Sumptuous and spacious, the Presidential Suite comprises of a reception area with a guest bathroom, separate sitting room and bedroom en suite. It also boasts a large private terrace with spectacular views ideal for private functions.
Our Executive Suites comprise of a reception area with a guest toilet, a sitting room, and spacious bedroom with bathroom en suite.
The family suite consists of two inter-leading double rooms, which share a bathroom. Ideal for a family of four or parents with small children.
Request one of these beautiful front facing turret rooms, which are steeped in history and were selected by the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret during their visit to Leopard Rock in 1953.
Our standard rooms have beautiful views of the golf course, gardens and mountains, or the pristine Enchanted Forest. Some have private balconies and courtyards.
Our family friendly game park overlooks the breathtakingly beautiful Burma Valley, the small Himalaya Mountains and the Chimanimani Mountains in the distance where guided game walks, and game viewing on horseback through the game park can be taken. Evening game viewing from the raised platform can be arranged, accompanied with evening sundowners and canapés. You will see a wide variety of game including impala, zebra, kudu, eland, nyala, giraffe, bushbuck, wildebeest and the rare Samango Monkey and the Blue Duiker.
Our resident guides will take you on a guided walk up into the Enchanted Forrest. They possess a wealth of knowledge on trees, plants and birds as well as local folklore. Occasionally Leopard can be seen in the forest area from time to time, a rare but delightful treat. Hundreds of species of birds can be seen in the Bvumba, which is regarded as something of a bird lover’s paradise. Swynnerton’s Robin is only one of many rare species of birdlife to be identified while walking through the Game Sanctuary or forest.
