About Bua River Lodge

This is a beautiful lodge situated on the banks of the beautiful Bua River, in Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve. Boutique with just 6 safari units, guests can be assured of a relaxed and friendly stay.

Accommodation is beautifully presented safari tents with their own viewing deck, shaded by thatched roofs. Much of the furniture has been made by local artisans and constructed from trees found within the lodge site.

The tents are reached by walking, but never more than 300 metres from the main lodge. The footpaths are patrolled by lodge staff and lit with solar lights to guide you back to your room at night.
