Self-drive or a driver can be organized through The Responsible Safari Company in Blantyre/Lilongwe.
The rates include meals only. All activities to be booked while at the lodge
Please note that the accommodation at Bua River Lodge is NOT suitable for the very elderly or anyone who has difficulty walking. There are NO rooms with wheelchair access. All rooms are a minimum of 100 metres from the main lodge, where meals are served (although room service can be provided at Island rooms). It is necessary to climb at least two steps to reach the deck of all rooms and, in several of the rooms, guests need to ascend or descend steps to showers and toilets. The rooms are safari tents with flaps for doors and guest need to bend down and stretch up to open and close the zips on these flaps. Further, rooms are deliberately set far apart to provide privacy and seclusion but this is not ideal for families with elderly parents staying in a separate room. We will go out of our way to accommodate and assist guests with disabilities but it is essential that potential clients are informed of the situation prior to booking.
Bua River Lodge provides guests with unique safari style accommodation where they can sit back on the lodge decks and enjoy views downstream and into the wilderness of the reserve. Two rooms are set on a private island, which can be reached by a rope bridge!
