The enchanting Leopard Rock Golf Resort & Casino deserves its reputation as the one of the most beautiful and best-kept secrets in southern Africa. Tranquil in the shadow of the signature Chinyakwaremba “hill that sat down”; abundant birdlife, colorful wildflowers, blue skies, misty mornings, lush forests and far below, the tropical beauty of the Burma Valley, an exceptional resort and golf course beckons.
The Queen Mother during her visit in 1953, is reputed to have said “There is nowhere more beautiful in Africa. It is surely one of the special places in the world”.
The Bvumba Mountains lie on the Zimbabwe-Mozambique border, south east of Mutare. The Bvumba rise to Castle Beacon at 1911 metres and are referred to as the “Mountains of the Mist”, (Bvumba is the Shona name for “mist”)
