Frog & Fern Cottages

Frog & Fern Cottages are set in the village once known as Melsetter at the foot of the Chimanimani Mountains. They are 18km from Chimanimani Mountains National Park Base Camp, 3km from Bridal Veil Falls and share a common boundary with the Eland Sanctuary. This location is perfect for walking locally or for getting prepared for a serious hike into the Chimanimani Mountains.

Frog & Fern provides quality self catering accommodation in 3 stone, thatch and wood cottages housing a maximum of twelve people at any one time.

The Frog & Fern Cottages are owned and run by Jane and Dee who designed them and started the project in 1990. Born in Zimbabwe, Jane and Dee have themselves travelled extensively and are therefore sensitive to visitor’s needs. As conditions change rapidly in Zimbabwe, you will find them happy to give you current information to assist with your journey and to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Whether you are heading to Chimanimani from Mozambique, Harare, Beit Bridge or Bulawayo be assured of arriving to beautiful surroundings, the challenge of these mystical mountains and a genuinely warm welcome.
