Project Description


A favourite amongst families and groups of friends in search of comfortable accommodation. At Chengeta we combine the best of two worlds; the excitement of nearby wildlife and the contemporary comfort of today.

In the Shona language of Zimbabwe, ‘Chengeta’ means to ‘take care of’ or to ‘look after’. It defines our approach to hospitality. Whether you are looking for a short safari holiday packed with an endless array of adventure, a rejuvenating weekend getaway or a unique venue for your special event, we look forward to taking care of you.

Situated at the foot of a dramatic granite outcrop amidst indigenous trees and a tropical garden, this well-established 17 roomed hideaway offers both wild nature and uninterrupted privacy. Found in the midst of a 7,500 acre wildlife paradise, Chengeta boasts large concentrations of plains game as well as buffalo, leopard, lion and many species of birds.

The lodge has a two-tiered thatched dining room overlooking the gardens and two swimming pools, a pool bar, trophy lounge and main bar. Evenings can be enjoyed in the bars or around the fire pit, where stories of today’s adventures and tomorrow’s conquests are usually discussed until the late hours. (Should the urge for civilisation call, a TV lounge with full DSTV selection is also available.)

Should you feel the need for adventure, we offer a plethora of activities for both adults and children.
