Tongole Wilderness Lodge review
Donna and Stephen were excellent managers and Emmanuel was a really good guide.
Donna must have really enjoyed our company as she came on all the excursions including 2 boat trips, which apparently is unheard of. Even though it was not Ann's birthday until later in the week, she arranged a local small band and a separate group of dancers.
We were told this was only the 4th time in 2 years this has been done. The staff really enjoyed it. as did we and it made for a special stay.
The food and accommodation were excellent and hot water bottles were provided for the cold nights.
The birds were good, particularly on the dinghy trips on the River Bua. We did not see any elephants or large antelopes, but we were right in the middle of the trans location from Liwonde and many animals were fenced into compounds until they settle in..
Love Tongole, my favourite place. Facilities, food, staff, wildlife all great.
A new swimming pool to enjoy in completely relaxed surroundings.
A treat at Tongole
As we stepped out of our vehicle and shook hands with our welcoming hosts, we just knew we were in a very special place and that's before we met with the local elephants - the icing on the cake!
It became clear we had a natural connection with the staff. We embrassed their relaxed but competent manner. Their knowledge of nature, their surroundings & their ambiance with people was very appealing.
Tongoli was to be the 'treat' on our adventure around Malawi - and what a treat. With our luxury lodge housing a large comfortable bed - like camping in real style.
Enjoying a soak in the massive bath while a crocodile basks on a mud bank down at the river - don't get that every day! Dined by lantern light on the terrace. Menu choice amazing for the remote location. Varied locations for sundowners - so relaxing.
Beautiful, peaceful, great for relaxing
We had a wonderful time here. The lodge and accommodation were beautiful and very comfortable. The service was very helpful, personalized and friendly. The food was excellent and personal preferences were responded to. We had a great time just relaxing, enjoying the scenery and lodge, watching the birds, reading. We very much enjoyed the walks, the climb up the local hill and the game walks/drives with sundowners in beautiful spots at the end.
Donna and Steve were fantastic hosts
Thank you to everyone for a great start to our Malawi holiday.
