Welcome to Mbano, an ode to my Family

Decades ago, a young African girl embarked on her first trip to Victoria Falls. As she posed for a photo with her father and sister against the backdrop of the thundering waterfalls, never could she imagine what was to come. That moment sparked a dream in her heart. That dream is now Mbano Manor Hotel, a bespoke luxury five-star hotel, set in a forest at Victoria Falls.

Now a Mother, Grandmother, Businesswoman & Hotelier – Dr Matifadza Martha Nyazema is our Founder and Owner.

She is the African woman who owns a forest.

I invite you to visit Mbano for a vacation that immerses the senses & awakens your spirit. Some of the most valuable things in this world cannot be bought, they have to be lived. I welcome you to what I know will become your African Home away from home.
