Lugenda Wilderness Camp
Lugenda Wilderness Camp
A safari to this area is to go where few have travelled before. It is not a safari for first-timers only interested in seeing the Big 5, it is a journey of discovery for safari pioneers to an emerging photographic safari destination. Lugenda Wilderness Camp provides visitors with the true quality of wilderness that is rare to find on safari today.
Located in the greater Niassa National Reserve in the remotest corner of northern Mozambique, Lugenda Wilderness Camp is set in one of the continent's 'last wild places'. This is the description given to the Niassa Reserve by Mike Fay, World Conservation Society conservationist during his year-long MegaFlyover across Africa.
An elegant timber and thatched guest area is at the heart of camp and is a shady refuge from the African sun - a tranquil place to dine, help yourself from the bar or read through books on the region's fascinating history. Just metres from the banks of the river, the swimming pool tempts with its cool sparkling waters whilst sun loungers and umbrellas invite you to laze for hours.

- Whether you are a photographer, birder, naturalist, or just enjoy getting in touch with nature in its rawest form, Lugenda Wilderness Camp is sure to fulfill your expectations.
Our experienced guides will take you out to explore this fascinating region and the wildlife it contains, by open safari vehicle, on foot, or a combination of both, depending on your expectations and interests.
Of course part of the experience is to slow down and savour the true spirit of Mozambique wilderness. Ask you guide to take you night-frogging or to reveal the splendour of the southern skies over Niassa National Reserve. Many guests choose to spend some of their time simply relaxing in camp.
- Accommodation consists of 8 luxury East-African style tents, 6 x Kings and 2 x Twins.
All tents have an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower, ceiling fan, hair dryer, safe and wooden viewing deck.
The tents have a concrete screed floor with individual Victorian styled deep tub and shower.
The tents are situated underneath large wild fig trees which attract wild Elephant during the early morning and late afternoon.
Intimate and understated yet offering every luxury you could wish for, Lugenda is the definitive wilderness camp experience.
- The eight luxury tents are discreetly situated on the banks of the Lugenda River beneath towering fig trees, each with its own patio deck with wide-angle views. The tents have a solid substructure and blend beautifully into the natural surrounds whilst offering every modern comfort - from king-size beds to en-suite bathrooms with bath and shower, double basins, ceiling fans, personal safes and hairdryers.

Despite being in the heart of the Mozambique wilderness, the food at Lugenda is fresh and simply delicious. Guests are woken with piping-hot coffee or tea and muffins in the early mornings for sunrise game drives or walks. Leisurely breakfasts and lunches are taken in the living area overlooking the Lugenda river-bed. High tea is served before the afternoon game drive and you can watch the spectacular African sun set over the Niassa mountains during sundowners. At night you join the other guests for a charming river-bed or boma dinner, while taking in the African night sounds and smells and gazing at the breathtaking Mozambique night sky.
Lugenda's collection of fine wines meets the most discerning tastes whilst our guides reveal some fascinating insights into the region's history and geography. With all your senses engaged, you cannot help but be sated by this indulgent Mozambique safari experience.
