Wilderness Eco Lodge

Lodge in Mavuradonha Wilderness

Located 180km north of Harare is this lodge run by the team from Small World backpackers in Harare. It makes for a good rural retreat, off the beaten track in an area famed for its wilderness. Rooms are in simple chalets; there's a self-catering kitchen or staff can arrange basic meals.

There are 12 trails of marked nature walks; guides US$2 per person.

From Harare, head to Mbare station and take the bus to Muzarabani, where you'll need to ask to be dropped off.
