About Rhodes Nyanga
Built as a holiday cottage in the 1800's by Cecil John Rhodes and converted into a hotel in 1933, the Rhodes Nyanga Hotel is a 24 roomed resort that offers a truly African experience.
Set in manicured gardens with breathtaking views from a veranda overlooking the lake, the hotel is furnished in true colonial fashion and boasts rondevals which are westernised versions of the traditional African hut - a style popularised during the turn of the century.
This idyllic haven is ideal for both holiday and business will provide you with some of the most memorable moments you will ever experience.
Recreation & Activities @ Rhodes Nyanga
The Rhodes Nyanga Hotel is situated within the Rhodes Nyanga National Park. There are a variety of activities that can be enjoyed in the Park. Please find listed below the various activities on offer.
Nyanga Trust Museum
Is next to the Rhodes Nyanga Hotel ( It was Rhode's old stable block). The Focus in the museum is on the local struggle after 1892 and the life of Cecil John Rhodes. Frustrated miners had to turn to agriculture so the BSAC sold large tracts of land in this area to settlers, who kept local people on as cheap labour, but a later deal kicked them off altogether, a state of affairs that continued well into the Smith regime. The hero in the museum is Chief Rekayi Tangwena, who led the struggle for reinstatement, which only came with independence in 1980. Well worth a visit.
Nyangombe Natural swimming pool
This is a natural pool on the Nyamgombe River with sandy beach referred to locally as Brighton Beach. The fast running, cold water is bilharzia free and safe to bathe in. There is a picnic braai area, changing rooms and flush toilets.
At 2 593 meters above sea level this is the highest point in Zimbabwe. The car park is located at 2 140 meters above sea level and it is considered as not a difficult hike to the top, but one must be reasonably fit. Allow two to three hours to the summit where, mist willing. you will have wonderful views. The summit is said to have its own resident spirit, which is why you won't find many local people up there. It is considered dangerous to point at the sacred mountain.
