I spent two nights on the Inn on Rupurara recently. It was utter tranquility and peace of mind as we immersed ourselves in nature. The rocky and bushy environment where everything is in its perfect original state delightfully reminds of the garden of Eden. The rooms are clean with all the modern facilities (shower, bath tub and flash toilets, heater).... More

Have been taking look at all the recommended attractions in the area but this is top of the crop. Amazing views comparable to World View attraction. Well maintained grounds makes this one of the best place to relax.

Stayed for two nights, enjoyed the peace, great room with a valley view. Not much for animals but fresh air and friendly staff/waiters. Cook was open to some of our wishes, food overall good, trouts were prepared excellently.

We stayed only one night (unfortunately) at the Inn, but could easily have spent at least 3 or 4 days there. Our accommodation was luxurious, with most rooms having stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The food in the main restaurant was top class, despite the fact that the area was experiencing electricity blackouts during our stay. All staff members... More

We were staying with family in Nyanga and decided to escape to the Inn on the Rupurara for a little space and peace. That was exactly what we got - it was beautiful. We saw a massive Python on the way in which was a highlight! The food was not amazing but completely satisfactory. We enjoyed our stay!

We stayed in the valley view rooms. They were very clean, comfortable and cosy with lovely views. The food was good and the staff provided good service. We were disappointed that all activities such as a self drive in the game park and even a walk are all charged for. Overall we had a lovely time and enjoyed our stay.
