Mutemwa Lodge

 Tented Accommodation on the Zambezi

A Piece of Peace on the  Zambezi River

At Mutemwa Lodge it’s our belief that every Upper Zambezi experience should encompass everything that makes the Zambezi river magical. This includes quality tiger fishing on a remote and private piece of the Zambezi, wonderful bird life, stunning sunsets, a roaring fire at night all complimented by superb owner hospitality and great food.

 “This location took our breath away! A unique ‘glamping’ experience close to nature… and catching a tiger fish is a memory we will treasure for a lifetime!”
–  Deb Minaar, Mutemwa guest, June 2019

What is the easiest way of getting to Mutemwa?

Let’s face it – safaris in certain parts of Southern Africa have become frantic and in some areas, really busy. And that’s all after the pressure of lengthy international flight and airport schedules. Fortunately, for travellers in the Chobe, Northern Botswana or Caprivi area – Mutemwa Lodge is the perfect way to start a safari after unwinding from long international travel plans OR the ultimate private Zambezi hideaway to unwind after a busy safari.

“Absolutely fantastic Zambezi fishing and wilderness experience. The river delivered in style with everyone catching at least one trophy tiger fish of 12 pounds+ and the cherry on the top was a rare sighting of a Pel’s Fishing Owl.” 
– Ian Dummer, Mutemwa Guest, December 2019
