Bua River Lodge is a newly established and highly acclaimed tented lodge, located on the banks of the beautiful Bua River within Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve, in Central Malawi. This is the first permanent accommodation in the Reserve. Accommodation is in purpose-made safari tents in three categories, Island, Riverside and Hillside, all en-suite with open-air bathrooms and located to give privacy and seclusion. Lighting is with paraffin lanterns and solar-powered lamps, so no noisy generators to disturb the tranquility – eating in the lodge at night is a wonderful experience. Wilderness walking, fishing, birding and photography will keep you busy but, if you prefer, you can just relax in the very peaceful atmosphere of the lodge.

The lodge is located 2 km inside Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve on the banks of the beautiful Bua River.
