Very convenient for the airport. Lovely grounds. Excellent food. I never ventured into the pool. Dave and Annette provide wonderful hospitality to their guests. I stayed just one night in both 2015 and 2016 at the start of a Zimbabwe safari. It's a perfect launching point.

We stayed for one night prior to a safari to Mana Pools National Park. Annette and Dave were gracious and wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. The grounds are very nice and well maintained, with the highlight being their pet Vervet monkey Alfie. He has a large cage in the garden and is very friendly and great fun...

Stayed here one night after our arrival in Harare, on our way to the national parks; a fine dinner, wonderful hospitality, clean rooms. Due to our late arrival we did not get a chance to avail ourselves of the grounds, but they appeared to be very nice. All in all a perfect spot for an overnight.

I stayed at Guinea Fowl for the first time in Jun 2015. Since then have stayed here 3 more times and is easily the first place that comes to my mind when I have to travel to Harare. Annette and Dave are excellent hosts and go out of the way to make sure your stay at Guinea Fowl is comfortable.

We stayed with Dave and Annette on our way through Harare (to Mana Pools) on the way up and on the way down. The service is excellent, and they were extremely helpful - not only giving us pointers, but also lending us a few items for our trip up to Mana Pools. Food was to die for - wonderful home...
