Overlooking tumbling rapids at the confluence of the Shire and Mkulumadzi (sometimes written 'Mukulumadzi' or even 'Mkurumadzi') rivers, is the smart and solidly built Mkulumadzi Lodge. Opened in 2011, it is owned by Robin Pope Safaris and incorporates some innovative 'eco' ideas. The lodge is located in a 70km2 private concession, within the newly revitalised Majete Wildlife Reserve.
Our view of Mkulumadzi
We really like Mkulumadzi – it’s a stylish camp with spacious, well-built chalets. The Majete Reserve itself is rugged and, like the antelope species found here, is interesting and quite unusual – albeit it’ll be some time before its big cat populations reach their optimum size. Majete is a relatively new park, so ideal for those who want to trailblaze, and Mkulumadzi is the obvious place to stay here.
