Mkulumadzi Camp is an exclusive safari camp set on a lush riverbank within Majete Wildlife Reserve in Southern Malawi. A stay at Mkulumadzi offers you a great opportunity to explore this hitherto under-visited reserve. The Majete Wildlife Reserve is a vast region of mature woodland and granite hills, picturesque river valleys and dense forest. It is home to the elusive black rhino, along with elephant, buffalo, nyala, sable, eland and hartebeest. Lion and leopard have also returned to the reserve

Mkulumadzi has eight chalets, each with spacious living and sleeping quarters and a private viewing deck. You can swim in the pool, dine under the stars, enjoy river cruises, game drives and walking safaris.

Majete Wildlife Reserve

Majete is a true wilderness where every trip into the bush will feel like an adventure. However here, unlike the explorers of old, you will be accompanied by an experienced armed ranger. Surrounded by 7 000 hectares of private concession, Mkulumadzi Camp enjoys an idyllic location at the confluence of two rivers. Shaded by giant leadwood trees, it is the perfect combination of splendid isolation and first-class facilities.

Majete Wildlife Reserve was taken over by African Parks back in 2003. It works with private companies such as Robin Pope Safaris, to restore some of Africa’s prime wildlife reserves to their former glory. After a set period, the parks are returned to the country’s wildlife authorities to continue the stewardship. Majete has benefitted from a huge influx of investment leading to improved infrastructure and a truly magnificent restocking programme.

At Mkulumadzi Camp, you can be as active or as idle as you wish. Head into the bush to track rhino, hike to the peak of Majete Hill, take a cultural tour of local villages or simply lounge on the shaded riverbank listening to the gentle grunt of hippos.
