Marula Lodge is a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay, and is basically at the entrace to the game park. It was recommended to me when I arrived in Zambia and it has never disappointed. They provide great facilities and service, while remain friendly and down to earth. I worked for 6 months in Zambia and always stayed here when I went to South Luangwa. It has a swimming pool, a lovely range of seats/hammocks with views of the river and flexible safari game drive options. The both the tents and rooms have comfortable beds and insect netting. I think the best feature is a lovely shower block that is set up under a tree - you can have a private hot shower looking at the sky with blossoms falling at your feet - i used them even when I stayed in a room with an ensuite! The other highlight are the aminals that wander through the site - elphants, hippos, monkeys. Its a great place to unwide, and a good base for game drives/safaris.
