Guest Testimonials

“Mbuna Lodge is a haven for people who seek and appreciate the beauty of unspoilt nature combined with many of the luxuries of modern life. The well appointed bungalows furnished and decorated with such loving detail, the careful attentiveness of the whole team (congratulations to both the chefs for the delicious vegetarian menus), the idyllic surroundings and the complete lack of the noise of „civilised life“ from morning to night have made this place unique and unforgettable for my family and myself. Long may its spirit survive.Many thanks to all responsible – we hope we will be lucky enough to return one day….”
