Majete National Park becomes a Big Five Park
In 2012 Majete became Malawi’s only Big Five Park thanks to an ambitious and successful animal translocation project. The reserve is made up of mature Myombo woodlands and granite-topped hills that contrast with picturesque river valleys and lush riverine forest. For connoisseurs of wildlife many exciting encounters lie in store, with the chance to view many species including black rhino.
Mkulumadzi stands on a bluff overlooking the confluence of two rivers, the Shire and the Mkulumadzi, which is where the lodge gets its name! Beautiful setting; well-constructed lodge and finished to a high specification, in typical Robin Pope style. It lies in a private concession that adjoins the National Park and is best summarised as “safari accommodation in peaceful privacy.”
The lodge has eight superb chalets, each with spacious living quarters and private viewing deck. There is an infinity pool overlooking the river, dine under the stars, enjoy river cruises, game drives and walking safaris. Majete is not yet on the “safari tourist map” so visiting is exciting and safaris retain that elusive wilderness feeling.
