Majete Wildlife Preserve
Honeymooner Review: Read Here
The perfect combination of luxury and isolation, Mkulumadzi Lodge at the Majete Wildlife Preserve boasts eight superb chalets set on the banks of the Shire River, shaded by giant leadwood trees and wild mangos. Each chalet has a spacious bedroom and lounge, ensuite bathroom, outdoor shower and private viewing deck where guests can sit back and marvel at the sights and sounds of the river.
Set in 7,000 hectares of private concession, Mkulumadzi Lodge enjoys an ideal location at the confluence of two rivers just a few kilometres from the point where the magnificent Shire River plunges into the Kapichira Falls. It's a treat couples will fall in love with on their honeymoon in Zambia.
Guests arrive by a footbridge suspended over the Mkulumadzi River to discover a friendly welcome and many home comforts. The lodge has a restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining, a lounge and terrace, a bar and shop, swimming pool, viewing deck and a lapa for evening campfires.
Game drives and walking safaris are offered in the mornings and late afternoons, giving guests plenty of time to relax beside the pool, gaze at the resident bird population or listen to the grunt of hippos wallowing in the river. Afternoon tea is served on the terrace and on most nights dinner is served beneath the stars. It's a Zambia honeymoon paradise at the Mkulumadzi Lodge at the Majete Wildlife Reserve.
Enjoy international dining at the Mkulumadzi Lodge.
