Norma Jeane's Lake View ResortNorma Jeane's Lake View Resort

Norma Jeane's Lake View Resort is the ideal place to stay for an affordable break to get away from it all. It also makes an ideal first night's stop for South African visitors driving up from Beitbridge (and a wonderful place to relax after the trauma of the border) and is also a favorite place to stay for businessmen visiting Masvingo.

And, of course, we have the Lake. Lake Kyle (also known as Lake Mutirikwi - its modern name) was completed in 1961 and when full has a maximum depth of 57m and a surface area of 91 km², with 240km of shoreline; Zimbabwe's prime Bass fishing dam. The fishing has improved noticeably over the last few years with the Lake level now at a 15 year high - the photograph shows one caught earlier this year at the “Champion of Champions” Bass Fishing Competition. They can be monsters if you're lucky enough to entice one onto your lure. And for game viewing, we look across the lake at the Kyle Recreational Park - 16 900 hectares of almost pristine granite and Msasa woodland largely unmolested by tourists and home to all the larger species, bar elephant.

And while you’re with us, why not pay Great Zimbabwe a visit - the megalithic stone ruins are a 10 minute drive away from us.

We have accommodations for all tastes and budgets - a first rate camp site (Trip Advisor often says we’re the best in the whole country), budget rooms, self catering family lodges (ideal for a fishing weekend) and hotel rooms. Our dining room will provide you with meals should you wish (our English breakfast and 4 course Table d’hote Dinners are favorites with many of our guests)

Contact us - we’d love to have you stay.

Rhino Safari Camp in July

Rhino Safari Camp in July It has been a tempestuous month here on the shores of Lake Kariba - the gently dreaming hills of the Matusadona National Park have been swept with swirling winds which have brought into sharp focus the ravines and gorges, troughs and peaks of this most beautiful of ranges. Mirroring the mountains, the lake has been by turns turbulent and windswept, or deep and calm, shot through with light reflected back from our vivid sunsets.

This unseasonably unsettled weather has probably got more than a lot to do with the happenings in the starry skies above us - our guests at Rhino were in pole position to watch the truly startling total lunar eclipse last week. Dinner was laid on the shore, the small island of candle lit table and chairs appearing even smaller when contrasted with the extraordinary spectacle unfolding above us - an uninterrupted view unhampered by any ambient light. The night was very quiet - our resident elephant herd were still and almost on tiptoe - the quiet broken by a startled pair of fish eagles who mistakenly began calling when the Moon emerged from our shadow, thinking perhaps it was time to get up!

Apart from the close encounters with game in our magic spot, the peace and true remoteness, and total lack of generator noise or other bothersome hints of civilisation make a visit to Rhino an unforgettable experience -one which many of our repeat guests will confirm. There is no greater compliment than having guests return time and time again - and it's not only for the delicious meals conjured up with flair in our bush kitchen!

Come and visit!
