Bua River Lodge is located within Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve which sits beneath the Chipata Mountain. This is one of Malawi's last unexploited wildernesses, where a vast network of rivers weaves its way through wooded hills, nourishing the dense miombo forests that make up this unique ecosystem. Bua River Lodge is the ideal place to enjoy ‘forest bathing’ by offering a selection of safari tents chalets built right among the trees and along the river.
The river attracts many animals including elephants, buffalo, waterbuck, monkeys and crocodiles, as well as an abundance of birds from the small malachi kingfisher to the majestic fish eagle. So come and relax around the campfire or go on guided game walks to learn more of the flora and fauna found in the Reserve. Alternatively learn to cook a local dish, visit the local historical sites, delve into the bustling market place or simply relax and unwind by the river.
We pride ourselves in the food we serve and can cater for most diets, just let our staff know at the time of booking any requirements you have. We offer a fusion of Malawian, South African and European with homemade cakes and biscuits available during the day.
Our staff are looking forward to making your trip special. It's truly a place to leave your troubles behind and find the wilderness on your doorstep.
