Accor, a globally renowned hospitality group, has announced its entry into Zimbabwe with a new hotel in partnership with Mambano Hotels Limited. Mbano Manor Hotel Victoria Falls by Mantis will be the first internationally branded hotel to open in Victoria Falls in over a decade. Set in the heart of an ancient teak forest, this acclaimed luxury property, which opened its doors in 2020, will be rebranded under the Mantis Collection in June 2023. The hotel is situated amidst the serene beauty of a bird and tree sanctuary, offering guests a tranquil retreat. It comprises 18 opulent suites and a presidential villa, all tastefully decorated to the highest standards of luxury.
Mbano Manor Hotel Victoria Falls is a source of pride for its founder, builder, and manager, Dr. Matifadza Martha Nyazema, also known as “Doc Mati,” and her dedicated team of stakeholders. Doc Mati visited the waterfall on the Zambezi River in southern Africa as a young girl and that trip sparked a dream of establishing a world-class forest hotel amidst the breathtaking beauty of Victoria Falls. Her passion and vision have culminated in the creation of a remarkable property that celebrates the region’s natural splendor and offers an unparalleled guest experience.
There is a natural synergy between the Mantis brand and Mbano Manor Hotel. Mantis stands for Man and Nature Together is Sustainable and brings a commitment to preserving its surrounding communities, wildlife and the environment which is in line with the ethos of Dr. Matifadza Martha Nyazema.
Mbano Manor Hotel Victoria Falls by Mantis is committed to promoting sustainable tourism and reducing its environmental impact. As part of this commitment, the hotel will implement a range of environmentally-friendly practices, including the use of Accor’s comprehensive reporting tools for energy efficiency and carbon emissions monitoring, internal carbon pricing mechanisms, eco-certification programs, and adherence to brand standard sustainability criteria. By adopting these measures, Mbano Manor Hotel Victoria Falls by Mantis aims to contribute to a greener and more sustainable future for the hospitality industry.
