Best of Zimbabwe News

Dear InnSiders
The Inns and its affiliates, Members of the Best of Zimbabwe, will be offering specials throughout the year. Our Lifestyle Partners are offering cardholders various benefits on presentation of a valid Innsider Lifestyle Card. Both are listed at the end of this Newsletter.

Winner of the Competition for one night for two persons sharing at Gordon’s on 125 First Street on bed and breakfast basis is Sandy Whitehead, Innsider Card C4923.

InnSider Cards open up a new lifestyle

Best of Zimbabwe brochures are now available with up to date information on all our members. Please visit any of the outlets selling cards to get yourself a copy.

Innsider Lifestyle CaRD

Cardholders are reminded to renew their cards in good time as members of Best of Zimbabwe including City/Town Lodges in South Africa will not accept expired cards.

As many readers of this newsletter know, Innsider Lifestyle Partners offer a wonderful selection of specials to owners of InnSider Cards.

All that is needed is for cardholders to have their cards up to date, which they can do at a number of locations (see below).

Please note your old Innsider card must be brought in when renewing. A new form will need to be filled in every time your card is renewed. If you lose your card and it was still valid you are required to pay the $10 renewal fee for a replacement. The cost of cards is reasonable and the offers coming from the partners are both varied and appealing.

Among the specials on offer are discounts on food and accommodation, giving unique opportunities to enjoy the venues at very competitive costs.

Read through this newsletter for information on what’s on offer from partners in the Best of Zimbabwe grouping and don’t forget to regularly check the Inns of Zimbabwe website for updates on offers within the Inns of Zimbabwe group.

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge

With August holidays and the festive season fast approaching, I wanted to remind you of what a great product our Victoria Falls Safari Suites are for small groups or families traveling together, and how affordable the rates are (bearing in mind the space, privacy and added value)!

Take a look at the rates, and the included value that comes with the Safari Suites i.e. a Nespresso machine, microwave, and a complimentary mini bar which is re-stocked daily with beer, wine, soft drinks and bottled water - and think about which of your clients this product would suit.

​Please note that​ we have also​seen demand for small corporate retreats and performance incentives as each Safari Suite can sleep 4/6 pax, and has a great open plan social space and terrace.

Please contact me if you have any questions or queries regarding the Safari Suites, and please contact our Reservations Team for any booking enquiries!
Kind regards,
Allan Kennedy
