Surrounded by Mopani and African Ebony trees, the lodge takes pride in offering the perfect combination of luxury and isolation with superb tented and thatched chalets on the banks of the Luangwa River, overlooking the waterhole and river front.Our exciting outdoor dining by the river and a lapa for the evening camp fires is highly recommended for our nature loves.

My family and I stayed at the Mopani Safari Lodge. It’s located right on the river. We came during the early rainy season so the river was a bit dry. However just perfect to see animal crossings. We stayed in the very spacious chalets. Technically they could fit 5 people very comfortably. And if you are skinny couples maybe 11 people. But you pay per person so why not enjoy the extra space. The chalets were very well designed and carefully thought up while building. The food here was excellent. They made us cooked to order food every day for lunch and dinner. Some in our party had special dietary restrictions and they were very accommodating to that as well. Breakfast was basic. However if you plan to go on the early 6 am safari I would suggest skipping breakfast and just drinking water to hydrate. The actual safari tour was great. We had Godfrey as our guide and he took us up close and personal to many of the wild animals we wanted to see. Robert was another guide and he was also really good. Together they make a great team and know how to spot and find the animals we want to see. Over all the our stay at the lodge was excellent. We hope to see everyone again next year! Just a side note for awareness. I have never seen a lion in the wild with a full mane, and probably never will due to people hunting them for wall pieces. We have to stop hunting of big cats as well as other animals that we want to continue to see and let them play the course of nature.

We were warmly welcomed here by the manager with cool, moist face towels, fresh orange juice...and a wild elephant. It got better, as the route to a muddy lagoon was just outside our veranda so we constantly had elephants, giraffes, warthogs, mongeese, baboons, etc literally on our doorstep. Room was very good with tastefully decorated bathroom. Plentiful, excellent and varied meals served with HUGE portions. Price includes 2 game drives a day. We did an evening drive and an early morning drive and that was enough for us with a 2 night stay. We chose to skip the 2nd drive on our second day and spent the afternoon in the swimming pool. This is an alcohol free lodge, which is stated on the website, but we missed that bit, however you can discreetly drink your own in your room. Shout out to Marisa the manager, Noah our game driver/guide and John who served us in the restaurant - exceptional, friendly, attentive and personal service throughout.
