Mutemwa Lodge is tucked away along the banks of the mighty Zambezi River in Western Zambia. The Zambezi spreads its banks a kilometer wide in this section and guests can relax under the shade of indigenous trees or do some bird-watching in the area. Mutemwa Lodge offers guests Tiger and Bream fishing, specific bird-watching expeditions, as well as tours to nearby cultural and scenic destinations. African cuisine is served in the boma, around a roaring campfire.
Each of Mutemwa Lodge’s eight luxury bush tents boast an en-suite bathroom, private deck and includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Mutemwa also offers fly-in safaris, fishing trips, river adventures, game-viewing and bird-watching expeditions.
In addition to this they offer the following packages:
- Maziba Bay River Safari and Ngonye Falls;
- Fishing Safari at Lungwebungu – Tiger and Bream;
- The Liuwa Plains National Park – four night;
- The Liuwa Plains National Park – seven night;
- Barotse Floodplains – Ku-omboka Ceremony; and
- The Sioma Ngwezi National Park.
The river flowing past the lodge is generally shallow and broken by many forested islands and rapids. This ensures challenging fishing for both spin and fly anglers. The renowned Zambezi Tiger Fish is common to these waters, as are a variety of bream, African Pike, Upper-Zambezi Yellowfish and Catfish.
Mutemwa has a fly fishing expert – Devan van der Merwe, who is available to rig, fix, tie flies and give advice. In the spirit of conservation, the fish guests catch are tagged and returned to the river.
