Bushbaby Lodge in Zimbabwe is an absolute gem. I had the pleasure of staying two weeks in this paradise which is located in the highlands outside of Harare. A beautiful setting which includes several choices of lodges all built of local stones and two with traditional thatching. It had a truly tranquil atmosphere that contributes to a relaxing vacation or a work retreat.The staff is very friendly and helpful. Overall a very enjoyable experience. ... more
