Tongole Wilderness lodge opened its doors just 3 months ago, and is already proving popular and successful – with nothing but 5 star reviews from its guests.
The first ever upmarket lodge in the genuine wilderness of Malawi’s Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve, this is another exciting addition to the growing number of quality lodges in the Warm Heart of Africa.
A labour of love and a dream realised, Tongole Wilderness Lodge is a secluded hideaway, nestled on the banks of the Bua River and blended seamlessly against the breathtakingly beautiful backdrop of the Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve.
Successfully balancing luxury and ethical responsibility, the lodge has been lovingly hand built from the red earth, wood, thatch and rock upon which it stands, specially designed and superbly finished to reflect the essence of Malawian culture, while profits help fund local communities and biodiversity conservation.
A boutique residence, guests are welcomed to stay at one of just four open-fronted, thatched, riverside suites, offering panoramic views over nature’s masterpiece of the ambling Bua River, forest and abundant wildlife.
Elegantly styled, the rooms provide a cool and breezy retreat from the heat of the day, and feature a super-king bed, twin marble basins, and a large hand built sunken bath.
Spectacular raised wooden decks afford a tranquil and private space to relax, ponder and soak in the ambiance as the rich world of Nkhotakota goes by.
Depending on mood guests can be active or relaxed, activities can include guided walks through some of Africa’s last unspoilt wilderness, river boat-trips, fly camping, canoeing, fly fishing, cultural visits and visits to the nearby majestic Lake Malawi.
