Mkulumadzi Lodge is owned and run by Robin Pope Safaris and you will enjoy great wildlife viewing vehicle by vehicle, boat and on foot. The lodge nestles amongst giant leadwood trees and wild mangos. There are just 8 chalets ensuring privacy and the lodge has superb amenities including a viewing deck, restaurant, separate bar and swimming pool.

The chalets are spacious and luxurious, with a large bedroom, lounge and en-suite bathroom with twin basins and sunken bath. There is also an outdoor rain shower. All chalets have a private viewing deck from which guests can watch the wildlife in and around the Shire River. There are 2 family chalets, each with 2 bedrooms and bathrooms. There is also a honeymoon chalet. The roofs of the chalets are formed using local vegetation, which minimises their impact on the environment and helps keep the rooms cool in the heat of the day.

Game drives and walking safaris are offered in the morning and late afternoon. Full day game drives with picnic lunches can also be arranged. The Majete Wildlife Reserve is home to abundant wildlife including elephant, black rhino, buffalo, hippo, sable and impala. The birdlife is profuse. Boat safaris on the Shire River offer a different perspective and can be taken as an alternative to game drives. It is also possible to visit the impressive Kapichira Falls which are just a few kilometres from the lodge or to hike up Majete hill.

When not game viewing you can relax by the pool, on your own deck as you watch birds, or view animals at the waterhole from the hide. The lodge can organise visits to the local village and community centre to give a glimpse into the lives of the local people.

Meals are served in the restaurant or on the terrace in the open air. As well as breakfast, lunch and dinner, guests can enjoy afternoon tea. Dinner is often taken al fresco and romantic dinners can be arranged on your own private deck.
