Roddy started his hospitality career at Meikles Hotel in Harare at the age of 17 and furthered his training through The Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town. From there he has had further exposure within South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania until deciding to move back to his home country in 2016.

River Lodge Manager
Clive started working in hospitality in 1996 as a waiter, since then he’s had the opportunity to work in many hotels and restaurants.
Over the years, he has had the honor of meeting and hosting royalty, actors politicians, and even the NASA scientist that worked on the Mars Rover.
“In no other industry would you have the opportunity to meet so many people from such diverse walks of life, I believe that I’m not only a manager but an ambassador for my country and my brand, I believe in creating memorable experiences for my guests.”
Part of the 1996 opening crew at Matetsi Game Lodge, Peter left Zimbabwe in 2000 for the open expanses of the Serengeti (Tanzania) followed by 2 and a half years in the desert at Sossussvlei in Namibia. In 2007, he was transferred back to East Africa to manage Mnemba Island Lodge off the coast of Zanzibar.
After 16 years with &Beyond, Peter left Africa to manage a boutique hotel on the island of Nevis in the Caribbean. Homesick for Zimbabwe and the bush however, Peter returned in 2015 to help reopen &Beyond’s Matetsi River Lodge.
As of July 2017, Peter has been a part of the Zambezi Crescent Collection’s “Dream Team” as Manager of Victoria Falls River Lodge’s new and exclusive Island Treehouse Suites – set upon the private Kandahar Island in the heart of the mighty Zambezi River.
