Both Matemwe Retreat and Matemwe Bungalows were full during this time, and so it wasn’t possible to move them to another room. Instead the staff did their best to fix the problems – but clearly inconvenienced the guests greatly. When we explained this, the owners offered these guests a partial refund, to try to go some way to make up for their disappointment.
The day that these travellers left, 21st February, a new ‘replacement’ manager started at the Matemwe Retreat. From the end of March until the start of June, the whole team at Matemwe Retreat will be doing their usual annual maintenance. This includes replacing most soft furnishings and servicing all the electrics. We are optimistic that when the lodge re-opens in June, it’ll be in the excellent shape that we’re used to at this lodge.
