Thorntree Lodge is one of Harare’s well considered lodges. It is located in the tranquil and upmarket neighborhood of Glen Lorne along Enterprise Road in Harare, Zimbabwe. In terms of distance it is some 15km away from Harare’s CBD and key government offices. It is also some 25km from Harare International Airport and is easily accessible during the day or at night via a well maintained road network reaching the airport.
The lodge provides some of the most inviting peaceful environments in the city particularly because of a scenic river which flows across the enter length of the lodge property right around the year. This is one of the reasons why the lodge is also a favorite for many wedding couples.
The Lodge has a total capacity of 10 modern well maintained immaculate rooms with en suite bathrooms. Each room has a room safe, tea and coffee and WiFi access in addition to being connected to Satellite TV known locally as DSTV which includes news channels such as CNN and BBC.

Low seasons have significantly lower prices per night compared to the peak season. In terms of room times, Thorntree Lodge rooms are categorized into three namely Standard Single room, Standard Queen room and the King-size suites.

Thorntree Lodge Harare accepts both cash and international VISA cards for electronic payments. The Lodge currently has no online payment method available.
Quality of Service
The lodge offers a relatively high standard of service. We recommend it for international visitors as well as business visitors. We have had personal experience with the staff and we do recommend their service (please feel welcome to leave your personal review below).
This is not really a backpackers lodge. In our view, Thorntree Lodge Harare is best suited for the business traveler who is in search of a tranquil environment away from the city noise. Backpackers out to spend as little as possible might do well with certain backpackers accommodation around the city.
