Musangano Lodge is a treasure. Views are fantastic, staff is friendly, food was delicious. Importantly, the electricity and hot water were reliable. It was a home away from home. It is about 30-40 minuntes from Mutare town center and is an excellent choice for those that have business or want to do activities in the Mutare area. The hiking trails...

The evening was a bit disappointing . The food was okay but but not especially tasty. The wine tasting was obviously a new event....

its a great place for kicking back and just chilling since it doesn't have a lot of activities. its proximity to the city is also an added advantage in the event that u need to pick up one or two items in town.

Easy to find well appointed and friendly. The two bedroom lodges are great with private braai area and deep bush feel. Swimming clean and safe for kids (no attendant though so adult must be there at all times). Food was absolutely fine and choice wide including comprehensive kids menu. Drinks were cheap with a wide choice and we were made...

I really enjoyed my time at Musangano, the only negative points were that the beds could have been a little softer and a little more choice on the TV. Otherwise it was peaceful and beautiful and I enjoyed the staff and felt very secure.
