The Johnson Family
Royal Barotse Safaris is owned by Gavin and Penny Johnson – Mutemwa began as Gavin’s rugby career was coming to an end and they have raised 3 beautiful daughters from their home on the banks of the Zambezi. Mutemwa Lodge and the 3 extremely popular mobile safaris that operate in Barotseland are the result of years of hard work and vision by Gavin and Penny and have been a vital source of employment and support for the local communities of Western Zambia..
