Local crafts and custom-made furnishings complement the uninterrupted views of the Zambezi River, while the private plunge pool, double outdoor shower and furnished extensive wooden decking offer the perfect place to enjoy nature at its finest.

Island Suite

Enjoy complete privacy and quiet on your own little island. The Island Suites are king rooms surrounded by water and overlook the internal waterways of the property. They offer all the same conveniences and comforts as that of the River Suites.

Family River Suite

The 2-bedroom Family Suite is perfect for those travelling with their brood. Offering all the same comforts and conveniences of the River Suite, you’ll enjoy the addition of a joint lounge area to accommodate all members of your family.


When not enjoying game drives, animal tracking, nature walks or boating on the river, there’s plenty to keep you entertained at the lodge. Cool off from the warmth of the day in the outdoor pool or heat up your evenings in the heated swimming pool. For those who don’t want to skip a workout, an on-site gym is available. And unwind with a spa treatment or massage at the spa after. End your evenings off in the bar and lounge area with a nightcap, chatting to fellow guests about your day.


Being in the middle of the African wilderness is no excuse to not enjoy fine dining. The chefs at Mukwa River Lodge prepare the most delicious meals made from the freshest ingredients, catering to any and all preferences. All that’s left is to choose a wine to pair with your dish, and then have it served at one of the many scenic locations around the property.
