The Leopard Rock Hotel is a four star, 58-room hotel, resort and casino set in the Bvumba Mountains in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe. It is an iconic destination within Southern Africa with a rich history – The Queen Mother remarked, after all, that ‘surely there is no place more beautiful in Africa’.
The resort boasts a 6164 meter, Peter Matkovich-designed golf course, recognized as one of the best and most picturesque in Africa, if not the world. It also includes a 450-hectare private game park where you can enjoy viewing Giraffe, Zebra, Impala, Wildebeest, and Eland, either by foot or from observation platforms. The game park also includes the rare Blue Duiker, Bushbuck, Nyala and Sykes Samango monkeys. Included on hotel’s property is some of the last pristine (‘old growth’) forest in Zimbabwe’s Eastern Highlands, including rare flora and fauna and, indeed, a large number of leopards.
Since acquisition in 2009 by Cambria, the hotel has undergone significant refurbishment, as well as staff upgrades, and it is now restored to its former glory and is well up to par with current international standards. Completion of the refurbishment has led to superior occupancy and improved room rates.
In 2011 the hotel was awarded ‘Best Resort in Zimbabwe’ by the Association of Zimbabwe Travel Agents and ‘Best Resort Hotel’, First Runner-Up by Zimbabwe Tourism Authority.
