New, Award Winning, Walking Trails at Bua River Lodge

Bua River Lodge is set deep within the thickly vegetated and wonderfully varied Nkhotokota Wildlife Reserve, one of the largest reserves in Malawi. Nkhotakota has had very little human intervention – which means that itÕs as close to a true wilderness as you will get! One of the best ways to explore this truly wonderful expanse of bush, is on foot. This, however, is reliant on new trails being opened up, allowing access through the dense jungle – and these need opening up each and every season! No one knows exactly what you will find – but there is little doubt that the area is teaming with wildlife – including elephants, crocs, impala, warthog and literally hundreds of types of bird.
