Mkulumadzi Lodge

The perfect combination of luxury and isolation, Mkulumadzi boasts eight superb chalets set on the banks of the Shire River, shaded by giant leadwood trees and wild mangos.

Set in 7,000 hectares of private concession, Mkulumadzi 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. 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.

Each of the eight chalets 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. They all have a sloping vegetated roof planted with indigenous species such as succulents, aloes, shrubs and grasses which minimises their impact on the environment and keeps them cool in the hot season. The whole lodge is solar powered with a back-up generator.

Mkulumadzi offers accommodation in five double or twin chalets, along with one honeymoon chalet and two family chalets. The family chalets have two bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom.

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.
