The history of The Nesbitt Castle
is the history of two unusual men with extraordinary vision; born in different centuries these men both fell in love with the idea of a gothic folly in the heart of Matabeleland.
And what could be more incongruous than an English fortified castle in Africa?
Medieval crenelations circle the towers and thick granite ramparts, echoing an era when romance and chivalry were the hallmark of hospitality.
That gracious ethos remains the signature of Nesbitt Castle today.

Nine gloriously individual suites lie behind the castle walls, stone-chilled in the heat of summer, cosy and welcoming for those cooler days.
