"Mutinondo Wilderness review"

4 nights Arrived 1 May 2009
"Beautiful location, very comfortable rooms, good food and extremely friendly atmosphere. We loved being able to walk unguided on excellently cleared paths. The granite whalebacks are wonderful to climb and give great views. The river is beautiful as well - one day we went out for a long walk, and had a picnic on the river banks on the way home.

Mike is a charming and helpful host - he even tried to arrange for us to pick up some coffee at Lusaka airport as the duty free shop is being refurbished. It didn't work but it was good of him to try.

We had a room with a great view of sunrise, and it had glass doors, which we understand are new and keep the cold evening air out. There's a very relaxed atmosphere with no "organised" activities but plenty to do. The food was good and the bar was never going to run out, although we found we had to move some from the cupboard into the fridge after an influx of vistors to the campsite one day."

"Unmissable Mutinondo marvels"

5 nights Arrived 24 Jul 2008
"This is a really wonderful place. It is extraordinarily beautiful country and Mike and Lari are very, very nice people; the lodge and chalets are comfortable, the atmosphere relaxed, the staff excellent.

We saw visitors enjoying the horse riding (though we walked) and although there is game it is relatively sparse and retiring. The Bradt guide is right to say that this is not the place to go if you want to be closely organised and guided but that is one of the joys: the freedom to guide oneself around the Wilderness (and it really is very easy - you'd have to be a bit of a fool to get lost) and spend exactly what time one wants birdwatching (it's a designated Important Bird Area) and taking an interest in the hugely diverse flora and walking up the inselbergs for some of the most fantastic views you are ever likely to see in your life.

In the evening you can relax by the fire with a beer before a very good dinner. All in all how special on an ascending scale of 1 to 10? I'd say 10 without any doubt at all." See all these reviews: 15n in Zambia
