Situated on the junction of the Shire river and the southern boundary stream of Liwonde National Park. Set in a beautiful grove of ancient Baobabs, the Lodge shelters beneath the great boughs of these elephantine trees. The lodge is surrounded on three sides by marsh and open water, there are remarkably few mosquitoes.
The lodge started out life as the first Park Warden's residence. Built in the saddle between Chinguni mountain and Mbawala hill it offers panoramic views of the wildlife on the Chikalogwe plains. It was converted in the early 1980's into a guesthouse managed and operated by the Department of National Parks.
There have been numerous recent improvements to the lodge including 7 new en-suite twin Mara tents, a lounging deck and the "eagles nest", a romantic sunset tree hide with glorious views of the flood plains.
In the heat of the summer we invite you to chill out in our spring fed pool - be prepared to share with the occasional four-legged visitor. Come and meet the bushman, he can tell you all the most interesting stories about the bush, and the animals. All you need to know about the bush and the love he has of his animals.
