Lodge developments are continuing apace in Malawi

Lodge developments are continuing apace in Malawi.

Down in the far south of the country, Robin Pope Safaris have begun work on their lodge in Majete Wildlife Reserve. Set at the confluence of two rivers and accessed via a footbridge, this promises to be a VERY special lodge and a fabulous addition to the Malawi portfolio. The site is stunning, though not without some problems when it comes to actually building a lodge there! For an update, see the recent news item.

Meanwhile, work on the second lodge in Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve, Tongole, is coming along well. It’s had its ups and downs, but that’s to be expected when building in the African wilderness. Progress is being made and spirits are still very high, buoyed by a recent party for all the construction workers! A container has left the UK stacked full of items to make your stay something special when you go and visit. And they are currently sourcing their vehicles and thrashing out the usual Land Rover vs Japanese arguments! A mix of the two seems to be the happy compromise – test them out and see which ones take to the rugged landscapes of Nkhotakota best! A September opening is still on track. Meanwhile, new scout camps and an impressive gate entry into the Reserve are being built by the Department of National Parks & Wildlife.
