Imba Matombo is an exquisite Relais and Chateaux home about thirty minutes drive out of the centre of Harare. With its thatched roof and whitewashed walls, it gives the impression of being a true African lodge, while inside the décor and facilities are of a first class hotel. The chalets and main rooms overlook a sweeping lawn, crystal swimming pool and the valley of Dombashowa – full of masasa and flowering gum trees. Each room is individually decorated and is en suite. Facilities include a tennis court, pool, gym, and shuttle service; the lodge is not far from the local golf courses, restaurants and cinemas.
At night the lodge comes alive as guests meet in the sitting room around a crackling fire and enjoy pre-dinner drinks. Dinner is a grand affair with silver service set in an antique filled dining room. Imbas chefs create new and artistic dishes each meal and the first class cuisine is highly renowned throughout the city.
