Leopard Rock Hotel nestles in the lush forests of the Vumba Mountains, with the peak of "Chinakwaremba" or "The Hill of Tired Feet" towering behind. Architecturally, the hotel is in the style of a pretty French chateau, which looks out over a stunning golf course where natural lakes have been incorporated into the design, and, in the distance, vistas over the valley to Mozambique. The stunning vistas and the lovely rock gardens in which the hotel is set make it no wonder that when the Queen Mother stayed here, in 1953, she was quoted as saying "There is nowhere more beautiful in Africa".
Forty-five luxurious double rooms and thirteen superbly styled suites are all furnished in period style, and the suites are frankly opulent. The hotel boasts an accomplished cuisine. Indulge yourself with classic French dishes in the exclusive Conservatory restaurant, choose the more casual La Roche or take a relaxed al fresco meal on "The Terrace" overlooking the lovely Burma Valley. Perhaps you might follow your excellent dinner with a visit to the glittering Casino, where black jack, roulette, fruit and poker machines may all be played. In the daytime wander the stunning grounds where natural pools have been adapted for swimming. Over two hundred and sixty species of bird may be found in the area and there are lovely botanical gardens. For those who wish for more vigorous exercise there are squash and tennis. Bowls and croquet, a gym with sauna and other indoor sports are also available.
The eighteen-hole, par 71, golf course is one of the finest in Southern Africa and possibly the hotel's greatest attraction. Designed by a top expert, Peter Matkovitch, it incorporates about five thousand indigenous trees, is unstintingly maintained and is set within a stunning landscape.
Leopard Rock is a tranquil haven set in the magnificent Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe.
