A Mantis Hotel Experience
A Tranquil Sanctuary
Mbano Manor Hotel is an exclusive intimate boutique hotel in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Nestled in a tranquil ancient teak tree forest, the 5-star hotel provides an eco-luxury experience within a bird and tree sanctuary.
The reception area is framed by a large tree and garden wall, while the high ceilinged lounge overlooks a private garden. Accommodation comprises 18 private and secluded deluxe rooms and one presidential villa.
The name Mbano is derived from the Shona totem called Mbano Matemavi, which is rooted in the cultural heritage of Mbano Manor hotel’s founder and owner, Dr Mati Nyazema.
