Set in a private concession, Mkulumadzi Lodge is shaded by giant leadwood and wild mango trees on the banks of the Shire River in Malawi. Within walking distance of the plunging Kapichira Falls in the Majete Reserve, Mkulumadzi is located in one of Malawi's premier wildlife destinations but is still virtually unknown - prepare for a unique and uncrowded experience!

A range of exciting activies are on offer for you to enjoy: game drives, guided walking and boating safaris are naturally on offer but so too are trips to the nearby village and community centre. Owned and managed by Robin Pope Safaris, one of Africa’s leading safari companies, the standards of accommodation, hospitality, guiding and catering are second to none.


  • Game drives
  • Local village visits
  • Guided walking safaris
  • Bird watching
  • Boat excursions
  • Night drives
A little bit of romantic luxury in the wilderness; immerse yourself in nature with no windows or doors and hear the distant rumble of the nearby river which you can see from your huge sunken bath!

Arriving by way of a footbridge suspended over the Mkulumadzi River, guests receive a friendly welcome to the world of Mkulumadzi Lodge.

A sense of intimate seclusion in the lap of luxury is immediately evident: tucked away in this African paradise you have at your disposal indoor and outdoor dining, a lounge and terrace along with a bar and shop, a swimming pool, wooden viewing decks and a lapa for memorable evenings around the campfire.

You can also visit a nearby village and community centre for a unique cultural experience.

The lodge also has a hide located over a waterhole for close up photographs and offers guided hikes to the top of Majete Hill.


Mkulumadzi Lodge offers a variety of culinary experiences. Indulge in delicious safari breakfasts and lunches on longer game drive excursions or head for the restaurant for gourmet meals that you can enjoy indoors or outdoors. Afternoon tea is served on the terrace overlooking the magnificent African landscape and dinner is enjoyed beneath a canopy of stars.

"First time we can finally see hypos outside of water. The best experience was the elephants crossing the air field just before we take off! The Room was really great. The food, I found it excellent."

I had a very nice time at Mkulumadzi, Craig and Emma were great hosts and do an admirable job of running the place. Somehow I missed the fact that the rooms were open to the outdoors, but I did get used to that. It was lovely to be able to see and he ar the river from bed :) The bed cooling system they have in place does a wonderful job of cooling things down, otherwise it would have been quite uncomfortable as temps were consistently in the 40s. I also enjoyed spending time with the other guests that I met there.
