spectacular thatched lodge

This was a highlight.

Staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Food was excellent and the game drives were run at our convenience. We saw a great deal.

We were escorted from our cottage to the main building at night due to elephant, hippo and leopard in the camp.

Lianshulu Lodge review

An older camp but a great location right on the river.

The rooms are nice and clean but not luxurious. We had a great game drive and wonderful sunset drinks and were joined by a large herd of Elephants.

The food and service at the lodge were great. Our hosts could not be faulted and made you feel you were staying your favorite Aunties house.

You cannot charge cameras or phones etc in your rooms but at the main hall is a room where you can do this.

Lianshulu Lodge

This was a favourite of ours.

The owner Annetta, is such a lovely caring lady who just wants her guest to enjoy the experience. Nothing is too much trouble and she is around all the time.

The accommodation is amongst the wildlife so you have to be escorted back to your room every night. Our last night we were awoken to a large bull elephant right outside our window munching on the vegetation. He then proceeded to move around to our decking and we could have touched him he was that close. We sat and watched him for 10 minutes until he was then warned away by the guards with there flashlights. Magic moment!

The food was very good and Annetta even lends a hand by serving to the guests. We spent 4 relaxing days here and enjoyed every moment.

A larger lodge in a very pleasant position on the banks of a river and within the Mudumu National Park.

Animals free to roam through the grounds, so escorts required to take you to & from your room after sunset. Lots of hippo and elephant.

Very pleasant and friendly staff.

Good safaris each time land & water

A very comfortable lodge fit for royalty with game drives on land and water. What more could one ask of an African holiday?

We were privileged to be out game driving when the first rain of the season arrived and did it rain! The guides said it was one of the most violent storms they had experienced with lightening , thunder and sheet rain. It was so bad that we could not drive and sheltered in a Ranger Station. If you have never smelt the bush after the first rains you have missed and experience. Elephants appeared and seemed overjoyed with the rain. What an experience!

Lianshulu Lodge review

Very large rooms furnished to a very high standard, with bath, shower and outdoor shower.

Note: no power in rooms except lighting at night and early morning. Can't charge batteries except in main building. No walking unattended between room and main building between sunset an sunrise, so if you want to, it must be pre-arranged. No wifi.

Despite what the latest edition of the Bradt guide says, there are no night game drives, or guided bush walks.

Lianshulu Lodge review

An "old fashioned" Safari Lodge - nothing was too much trouble- "a Puncture? - we'll fix that for you!" - no questions asked.

Just the right attitude in the location where any other solution would have been a marathon of organisation and driving.

Lianshulu Lodge review

This is a very smart place where we were well received by the manager,r egret can't remember her name, but she did think of everything we could need.

Very attractive decorated beautiful table settings, delicious food and wine. Great sundown trip with our G&Ts overlooking the most enormous croc on the opposite side of the backWater.

Helpful guide, nice large room overlooking the water.
