Lugenda Wilderness Camp is a 90 minute light aircraft flight from Pemba in Mozambique, in the 42,000 square kilometre Niassa Reserve.
Rooms at Lugenda Wilderness Camp
Sitting on the banks of the Lugenda River, the eight tents are enveloped by a tangled wilderness, and yet offer a really luxurious and tranquil place to relax. Inside, the tents have quite a colonial feel what with the huge canopied beds and gorgeous roll-tops baths, and as you sip sundowners on your private patio you may well have a wild elephant casually lumbering past.
Food and facilities
Food at Lugenda is fresh and delicious, and because there are so few guests it can be enjoyed at a really leisurely pace. Just imagine having breakfast with your toes in the Lugenda River, tucking in to high tea as the sun sets over the mighty inselburgs, and then joining the other guests in the evening for a magical boma or river-bed dinner. Lugenda also has an extensive collection of wine, and a help-yourself bar-cum-library.
Activities at Lugenda Wilderness Camp
A safari with Lugenda Wilderness Camp means exploring a truly wild expanse that even scientists and researchers have yet to explore in depth. Together with your expert naturalist guides, you’ll head out on traditional game drives and walking safaris, and although large game isn’t guaranteed due to the sheer scale of the reserve, it’s more than made up for with birding, night-frogging, and the chance to hike up the inselburgs for a breathtaking sunset.
