New lodge opens on the Zambezi in Zambia

Posted by Anita Froneman on 21 July 2022

Mukwa River Lodge has opened on the riverbanks of the mighty Zambezi in Zambia, a 30-minute drive from Livingstone Airport, and from there another 10km to Victoria Falls.


The lodge accommodates only 14 guests in six spacious, free-standing suites, including one two-bedroom family suite. Constructed around steel structures with glass and natural materials and decorated with local art, crafts and custom-made furnishings, it is designed with sustainability and luxury in mind.

All suites have private decks with double outdoor showers and a bath, pool loungers and dining areas, as well as plunge pools with spectacular river or island waterway views.

Mukwa serves locally sourced and produced dishes, complemented by an excellent wine list. Chickens are kept on a dedicated site within the property to provide fresh eggs daily. The kitchen garden produces herbs, fruit and vegetables, and other fresh produce is sourced from local farms and the surrounding community.

Voted the Best Relaxation Retreat in Africa in the 2022 Haute Grandeur Global Hotel Awards, the lodge offers sweeping views across the river into the Zambezi National Park, providing game viewing opportunities from its sprawling decks when animals come down to drink at the river.

Rates: From R6 012 per person sharing. Includes all meals, soft drinks, local beers, select spirits & house wines, a river cruise, and a tour of the Zambian side of Victoria Falls with scheduled transfers.
