Lake Chivero Recreational Park


The Lodges are self-catering units each containing bedrooms, a lounge and a kitchen. Cutlery and crockery are provided, they are electrified and water is drawn from a borehole.

There are two standard lodges, Sunbird and Stonechat lodges, each with two bedrooms.

There are three exclusive lodges; Hornbill located near the tourist office and Fish Eagle and Kingfisher lodges which are located on a hill 1.5 Kilometres from the tourist office. They each have two bedrooms and views overlooking the plain and lake.


There are two types of chalets. All chalets have external communal ablution (toilet) blocks. The single chalets have one bedroom with a small sitting area; the other chalets have two bedrooms, a lounge and a kitchen.

Camp Sites

Bushman's Point and Public Mooring are undeveloped campsites on the South Bank.

The Msasa caravan and camping site is on the North Bank and has braai stands and an ablution block that includes showers, both cold and hot water and firewood.

The ZPWMA Lodges are good value, clean and well-sited, being entirely private. Sitting in a camp chair by a fire under the stars, it’s hard to imagine Harare is just thirty kilometres away. The staff are helpful and will build and light fires, wash up and help out.  Book a walk with a Ranger who will take your children for a safe walk to identify animal spoor and view white rhino at a sensible distance.
