Camp Site

Bua River Camp Site

Due to a lack of water at the lodge, we regret that the camp site is closed until further notice.

The camp site at Bua river Lodge is somewhat iconic in Malawi. There are still people in the country who remember staying there and fishing for Mpasa thirty years ago. It is located in the shade of some wonderful trees, right on the banks of the river.

Now the site has been upgraded, without spoiling its original charm, with level pitches for six tents (although more tents can be accommodated), hot showers and flushing toilets and a laundry area. The camp site will continue to be an integral part of Bua River Lodge. Campers are welcome to join us in the lodge for meals or a drink.

Please note that if you are using public transport or cycling around Malawi, you will no longer be allowed to walk or cycle from the reserve gate to the lodge. This is due to the ongoing introduction of up to 500 elephants into Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve from other parks in Malawi. As we have no phone network at the lodge, it is essential that you send a text message or email at least 24 hours before your arrival so that you can be met at the gate and escorted in.
