Mazambala Island Lodge & Campsite invites you to: “Come and experience the allure of Mazambala, a place of peace and tranquillity where time stands still.”
Mazambala is known amongst the local tribes as ‘Island of Abundance’, and is noted for its teeming wildlife, a bird lover’s paradise and its unstinting hospitality and personal attention. The lodge is situated on an island in the Kwando River amid lush tropical vegetation and offers accommodation in 16 traditional reed and thatch en-suite bungalows, with 24-hour electricity.
