About Bua River Lodge

This is a beautiful lodge situated on the banks of the beautiful Bua River, in Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve. Small and owner-managed, guests can be assured of a relaxed and friendly stay.

Accommodation is provided in six private safari tents, built on varnished wooden floors and shaded by thatched roofs. Each tent has a viewing deck that overlooks the beautiful river. 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 paraffin lanterns to guide you back to your room at night.

All meals and afternoon tea are served in the unique main lodge, set right on the bank of the river. There is a network of wilderness walking safari trails inside the reserve for the more active guests.
