LUXURY DESIGN

Defined by nature and a mood and tone of luxury, timelessness, tranquil living and rejuvenation, the design of Mbano Manor Hotel takes its cue from its one-of-a-kind setting within a natural teak forest, the surrounding wildlife and the 180 million-year-old geological wonder of the mighty Victoria Falls.

Carefully designed to ensure minimal disruption of the original forest, the design is classic-chic, crafted around bungalow architecture, abundant spaces and generous verandas from which to enjoy the rich natural setting. Interiors boast old-world comfort combined with modern amenities, supported by touches of nature and stone. Ancient teak trees dominate the large garden setting, with stone paths linking public areas and the luxury suites.

A cluster of large trees dominate the reception, lounge and restaurant areas. Guests are welcomed to Mbano Manor with a spacious, open-plan reception area, where a curio shop invites the temptation to shop for bespoke local artefacts.

The restaurant’s bungalow-style, with its vast indoor and outdoor space surrounded by teak trees, offers both formal and informal seating and a truly memorable dining experience.

An intimate, well-equipped outdoor spa offers the opportunity to focus on wellness, pampering and rejuvenation, while the secluded swimming pool provides a welcome refuge to enjoy the year-round African sunshine.

Located adjacent to each other, five sets of paired, luxury standard suites offer secluded comfort, while two sets of four family-friendly suites are positioned for individual privacy, yet also allowing for external interconnectivity of the suites through the veranda. Large windows and high, open ceilings with timber rafters dominate the spacious standard suites, flooding the voluminous space with natural light and creating an effortlessly cool interior.

Consisting of a calming lounge area and a spacious bedroom, bathroom and dressing room, the suites offer a tranquil space in which to unwind. A generous veranda provides guests with the opportunity to relax outdoors while enjoying the beauty of the lush forest and sounds of nature. Equipped with every modern essential, such as air conditioning, TV and Wi-Fi connectivity, no stone has gone unturned in the quest to ensure an unforgettable experience.

The Presidential Suite offers the ultimate in understated yet intimate luxury. Located in a private corner of the estate, this exclusive suite boasts its own gardens, plunge pool and individual access. A king-size bedroom is accessible from the comfortable lounge area, which can serve as a private function or reception area. The double-volume bathroom features fine finishings and couples amenities, including a modern claw bath, vanity areas and outdoor shower, plus a generous dressing area. Bordered on three sides by a generous veranda, bird-watching, wildlife-spotting or simply communing with nature are inherent features of the Presidential Suite.

A large boardroom area with separate access makes the Presidential Suite ideal for use by international business people seeking to combine business with pleasure, or an indulgent stay for a special occasion.

ENVIRONMENT

The unspoilt hotel site covers several acres of natural teak tree forest, as the land gently slopes towards the Zambezi River.

Wildlife (elephant, buffalo and even lions) often stroll by the hotel site, on their daily walk to and from the Zambezi River for a drink, while the mist rising from the thundering Victoria Falls and the flowing waters of the Zambezi river, are visible above the tree line.

Mbano Manor Hotel’s infrastructure will be designed to integrate harmoniously with the natural environment.  Facilities will be located in areas that allow for minimum interference with the surrounding ecosystem. Guiding principles on sustainable tourism will include incorporation of best practices on energy management, waste management and sewage treatment, monitoring and evaluation of impacts and general environmental awareness.

The Zambezi National Park and Victoria Falls National Park jointly extend over nearly 7 000 hectares which is considered relatively intact and adequately sized to maintain the diverse natural processes, functions and interactions including the waterfall, gorges, riverine ecosystem, breeding ground, habitat or landing base for migratory endangered bird species making it an Important Bird Area (IBA), lava flows, ancient stone artefacts and tools for hunter-gatherers.

It comprises 3 779 hectares of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park (Zambia), 2 340 hectares of the Victoria Falls National Park (Zimbabwe) and 741 hectares of the riverine strip of Zambezi National Park (Zimbabwe).
