A four-bedroom house set in a beguiling landscape of granite boulders and bird-filled woodland, Khayelitshe offers a private-home experience for travellers to discover next-door Matobo National Park by themselves or with a guide.

Built from timber and decorated in a modern, eclectic and stylish way, Khayelitshe is well appointed for a family or group of friends to enjoy exclusive comfort and convenience. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor lounging space plus fireside couches, sunny viewing decks as well as a small pool. Solar power ensures electric light and battery recharging facilities.

Accessible via a short drive from the city of Bulawayo, the house sits on 240 hectares of private land, perfect for hiking and mountain biking. It also has a border with the Matobo National Park, one of Zimbabwe’s smaller reserves and a magical blend of wildlife, scenery and adventure. Home to many antelope species, warthogs and monkeys, Matobo is also a haven for rarely-seen rhino and leopard, and the bird watching is excellent. Guided game drives are available from Khayelitshe, and as there are no lions, elephants or buffalo in the park, Matobo is also a good destination for walks and horseback safaris.

Standard Room

There are four bedrooms at Khayelitshe, each with their own bathroom featuring both shower and bathtub. Bedrooms are large and their double beds are swathed in netting to ensure a good night’s sleep. In-room facilities include a tea and coffee station and bar fridge; the lounge and veranda have views over the pristine Matobo landscape.


Khayelitshe was designed with a large, active family in mind and the result is an open, airy and sprawling home filled with indoor and outdoor dining and lounging space. Timber and stone stand out as the main construction materials, softened by leather couches, tribal art and colourful touches. There is a small pool and plenty of room to soak up the sun or chill out in the shade. Using solar power, Khayelitshe has electric lighting and power for the kitchen as well as battery recharging facilities but note there is no cell-phone or internet signal at the property.


A self-catering accommodation, Khayelitshe has a fully-equipped and modern kitchen. Guests can choose to eat indoors or outdoors and there is a barbeque facility. Food and supplies can be purchased in nearby Bulawayo. If you book a full-day guided game drive in Matobo National Park, then lunch and drinks are provided.
