KuChengeta is Shona for "to take care of" and that is what every traveller and business executive can expect from this exclusive experience. Conveniently situated, the drive is only 82kilometres from the centre of Harare on the Bulawayo road to near the small town of Selous. In less than an hour, guests find themselves breathing in the tranquillity and succumbing to the opulence in the lodge that captures the spirit of Africa. Built from as many locally available natural materials as possible the lodge has been designed to enhance yet blend in with the surrounding bush. A spacious colonialist lounge, bar and indaba fireplace area all focus on cascading waters nearby. Surrounded by landscaped tropical gardens and rolling lawns there are sixteen tastefully furnished en suite rooms. And having a sauna followed by a swim in the three-tiered rock pool provides another invigorating option of relaxation. The Chengeta Chefs combine only the finest fresh ingredients to create a cuisine that has become a hallmark feature of Chengeta Safari Lodge and something that guests have come back for time and time again already. One of the largest private game reserves in Mashonaland this is unspoiled Africa at its best. In excess of 45 species of mammal and over 180 bird species thrive here. The spectrum vegetation types in the park provide a prime backdrop and interesting terrain for walking and horseback safaris. Passionate about wildlife and sharing their knowledge of nature, the professional guides provide the ultimate all-round bush experience. So why "Chengeta?" Simply, "taking care of" guests, animals and the environment is what "Chengeta Safari Lodge" is all about.
