Set in 7,000 hectares of private concession, Mkulumadzi Lodge enjoys an ideal location at the confluence of two rivers just a few kilometres from the point where the magnificent Shire River plunges into the Kapichira Falls.
There are eight bush chalets which are luxurious and spacious. Each chalet consists of a large bedroom and lounge area that opens out to a private wooden viewing deck, plus an en suite bathroom with twin basins and a sunken bath that overlooks the river. There is also an outdoor shower with a large rain shower where guests can enjoy the sensation of bathing under a waterfall. The shower is open to the surrounding bush with stone-clad walls for privacy.
On game drives the knowledgeable guides are ready to take you on exciting game drives each morning. Longer excursions are also offered with a packed breakfast or lunch, perfect for exploring the far reaches of Majete.
Exploring Majete on foot is also highly recommended. The routes that follow the Mkulumadzi and Shire River are especially scenic with an abundance of birdlife and large mammals. Early mornings are the best and coolest times for walking. Guests can also undertake an escorted hike to the top of Majete hill.
From the seclusion of a comfortable hide overlooking a waterhole, guests can experience the thrill of watching animals coming to drink. This is an excellent photographic opportunity with buffalo, elephant, black rhino, sable antelope and eland all regular visitors to the waterhole.
