Leopard Rock Hotel Weddings
Leopard Rock Golf Resort & Casino is renowned as a world class wedding and honeymoon destination. Nestled in the shadow of the majestic Chinyakwaremba ('the hill that sat down') hill in Zimbabwe's Vumba Mountains, this secluded 'french chateau' style resort, which is managed by Lonrho Hotels, offers spectacular scenery and hotel facilities for the most discerning couples and their guests.
This sought after wedding venue has breathtaking views from the resort over the region's Burma Valley, creating a spectacular backdrop for an unforgettable romantic and intimate experience, offering a choice of ceremony sites and reception venues.
Whether it is an 'old world charm' wedding ceremony on the winding fairways of the golf course with breathtaking views and sparkling lakes, or surrounded by the sights and smells of the African bush in the exclusive game park, the resort will organise a magical event that will leave a lasting memory for any couple's special occasion in what Queen Elizabeth II once described as 'the most beautiful place in Africa'.
Wedding co-ordinators will tailor-make the occasion to suit the personality and budget of any couple, from country style ceremonies, horseback arrivals, or with the smiles and innocent voices of the chorus of the nearby children's school choir, or more glamorous and sophisticated settings. Logistics for any size wedding or religious denomination are superbly organised and entertainment can be convened from a range of musicians and ensembles, from classical to jazz and disco.
Hotel facilities include 58 bedrooms, catering for up to 130 guests and larger numbers may be hosted for and accommodated in nearby hotels and lodges. There are three dining areas in the hotel or a choice of the Club House or Patio. The hotel also has a casino, a number of bars, lounges and restaurants, as well as a choice of three banqueting facilities with the option of outside venues.
Leopard Rock has recently upgraded all its facilities and the resort now enjoys the services of a first-class chef, Gregory Gautier and his team, who provide mouth watering gourmet catering and presentation for any event. The food and beverage team can assist with the finest wine and champagne selections for the special day and menus can be adapted to suit any palate.
Leopard Rock is more than happy to accommodate children at the hotel, as well as at wedding ceremonies and receptions. Children's meals can be catered for and child-minders can be arranged on request and a playroom is also available at the hotel.
