Mukwa River Lodge Opens on Zambezi in Livingstone, Zambia

Mukwa River Lodge has opened on the riverbanks of the mighty Zambezi in Zambia to the delight of travellers and holidaymakers.

Situated 28-minutes from Livingstone Airport, and 10km to Victoria Falls, the enchanting riverside retreat was built from scratch on an unspoiled stretch of land by the owners, Edgar Rudge and Aaron Menezes.

Mukwa River Lodge is sister property to The Residence in Houghton (Johannesburg), and Camp Ndlovu in the in the Welgevonden Game Reserve in the Waterberg (Limpopo).

After five years of development, the newly launched finished product is exclusive and intimate, accommodating only 14 guests in six spacious, free-standing suites, including one family suite.

Constructed around steel structures with natural materials and decorated with local art, crafts and custom-made furnishings, the luxury lodge is designed with comfort, sustainability and understated luxury in mind - seamlessly integrated into the lush, natural environment.

Mukwa River Lodge aims to preserve wildlife and local culture through community education initiatives and employment opportunities, wildlife conservation and sustainable practices.

Promising a culinary encounter to remember, Mukwa serves locally sourced and produced dishes, complimented by an excellent wine list.

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.

The lodge offers sweeping views across the river into the Zimbabwe National Park, providing game viewing opportunities from its sprawling decks when animals come down to drink at the river.

Guests are encouraged to relax and embrace the luxury whilst immersing themselves into nature. The gym also boasts views of the surrounding greenery, whilst the spa offers restorative treatments influenced by the indigenous products and culture native to the area.

A host of exhilarating water-based activities and adventures await those wanting to experience, explore and discover. These range from birding and sunset cruises, to tiger fishing, guided game walks, safari drives, white river rafting and helicopter flights over the Victoria Falls, the 7th Natural Wonder of the World.
