An idyllic wilderness escape in South-West Malawi

Cost Per Night
Perfect For

Couples, Honeymoons and Families

In the heart of a 7,000-hectare private concession, this deluxe property is the perfect combination of splendid isolation and first-class safari facilities. The camp itself offers spacious, luxurious living with expansive rooms, lounging and dining areas, shaded by giant leadwood trees, all of which take full advantage of the spectacular views across the river and bush around the lodge. You won’t need another “wow” moment at Mkulumadzi, but you’ll get one anyway if you choose to spend a night on the sleep out deck; a perfect spot for those who want to slumber beneath the stars and take in the African nightscape in all her bedazzled glory.

Majete Wildlife Reserve is another incredible tale in the book of Southern African conservation success stories. It has seen the return of many endangered species and is now considered a Big Five Park offering regular sightings of lion, rhino, leopard, buffalo and elephant.

Activities here include walking, boating, game drives, viewing hides and the star bed sleep out experience. There are no activities specifically for young children, but children of all ages are welcome and with family chalets consisting of two adjoining ensuite bedrooms and a pool to splash about it in the heat of the day, families are always made to feel very much at home at Mkulumadzi.

Why Wayfairer

Majete was not always the thriving, wildlife-rich destination that we now know and love. In the 1980s and 90s this area was all but decimated by poaching. Over the years African parks have brought the region back to life and Mkulumadzi played a big part in its success. Robin Pope Safaris funded the restocking of the parks predators and black rhino as well as the cost of the relocation of lions from South Africa, to make Majete into a Big Five Park. The lodge’s commitment to the success of Majete and their luxury, first-class facilities mean we’re happy to, enthusiastically, give Mkulumadzi the Wayfairer stamp of approval.
