Situated on the hilltop there is no way you can miss the hotel when coming from Bulawayo side and heading towards Victoria Falls. The vintage hotel has kept its originality while adapting to modern expectations

We drove more than 16 hrs from Harare to Vic Falls, and after seeing the falls we couldn't find a cheaper hotel there. We decided to drive back to Hwange and sleep there since we where going to the Hwange National Park. It was the closest place and there where 6 people in our party. At first the rooms where...

Business lodging in the coal mining town is best here. The big baobab tree is more than 600 years old. Order drinks and food to enjoy while sitting below the tree and get view of the town from this spot. See the colliery stadium, golf club and Coronation drive cut through the town's business center from Western side of the...

We stopped for a leg stretch and comfort break en route from Vic Falls to Hwangwe. It does offer a great view over Hwangwe and the toilets were clean. Never stayed there. There was no-one at the reception and there appeared to be few people around.

Untouched since the 1960's, it's faded grandeur was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. We didn't stay but had a lovely freshly cooked lunch outside under the baobab tree. Toilets were clean, and we had a lovely walk around the area with views for miles. The radio mast is guarded but the guards were very friendly and happily talked...

The location itself is beautiful as it overlooks the town. The rooms were waaaay over priced, had to change rooms 3 times, the standard was that low. I really felt robbed and deeply regretted stopping over enroute Vic Falls. I stayed in better hotels and paid less than I did at the baobab. Never again

We often have to stay overnight whilst doing business in Hwange - sadly the only place one can stay is at the Baobab. It is a pity that the rooms are so poorly maintained. The adaptor plugs in my bedroom were faulty. After asking for this plug to be changed I waited one and half hours before someone came to...
