The Inn on the Vumba offers 15 comfortable en-suite hotel bedrooms and four cottages for up to four people each. All rooms and cottages are decorated in an old country inn style fitting for the rugged, cool English type climate.

A swimming pool and playground provide welcome opportunities for young and old to unwind.

The Inn’s restaurant can seat up to 40 people and is a popular choice for celebratory functions. The comfortable lounge is complemented by an attractive English country inn style bar.

We are found only a few kilometres from Mutare on the well-signposted full-tar Bvumba road. Sharp curves and steep gradients as the road winds into the hills are very scenic but call for careful driving.

The Inn can comfortably host conference groups, corporate functions and weddings for small groups. The setting in the mountains will make any occasion a special one.

There are plenty of excursions and activities to be had within an easy distance of the Inn – adding another dimension to any holiday or function.


The Inn has an upmarket restaurant with a dedicated chef who is proud of his delicious cuisine. The views from the tables facing the gardens take in the mountain views and manicured garden.

The restaurant is open for all the meals of the day including breakfast, lunch and dinner.
