Golf clubs and balls are available for hire and friendly caddies are always on hand to retrieve lost balls in the tea and forest (beware of buffalo-beans and snakes)
Nyawamba Dam: Enjoy a calm and peaceful kayak around Wamba Dam and dabble in a little fishing at the same time…there are bass and bream to be caught. Bass fishing is strictly catch and release
Birding: Our excellent bird guide and will help you to glimpse at some very rare birds such as the Twin Spot, Crimson Wing, Anchieta’s Tchagra (Wamba Bird), Pallid Honeyguide, Green–Backed Woodpecker, Blue Swallow, Lesser Seedcracker and Copper Sunbird. In the early mornings and late evenings you might observe the Palm Nut Vultures as these rare vagrants fly in to feed on the oil palms at the edge of the golf course
Nature Walks & Mountain Hikes: Aberfoyle Lodge and the surrounding area is steeped in history and folklore and Morgan, who was born here and has lived his whole life in the area will fascinate you with tales and history of the region. He will lead you up to scale various mountains such as Domwe, Dzunzwa, Makhore and Tsongorera, pointing out various medicinal plants and other things of interest.
Tree Canopy Tour: We have recently installed a Tree Canopy Tour which is a very novel way of bird spotting and experiencing the forest and trees as you zip down from platform to platform
Mermaids Pool & Waterfall: We can pack you a picnic lunch and you can wander down to Mermaids pool where there is a waterfall and a cool natural pool to swim in. On the way there you can visit our fascinating Hydro Electric Plant built in 1961 that generates the power for the Lodge.
