Bua River Lodge is located just two kilometers inside the eastern boundary of Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve in Malawi, making access by saloon car, even during the rains, quite straightforward. The reserve, covering 1,800,000 hectares, is the third largest protected area in Malawi and one of the least known. Largely miombo woodland, the reserve falls from around 1,000 metres above sea level to just 600 metres in the east. The beautiful Bua River, the second largest in the country, on whose banks Bua River Lodge is located, bisects the Reserve.
The breathtakingly beautiful Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve is one of Africa’s last truly undiscovered wildlife areas. Nkhotakota supports a rich diversity of flora and fauna. Large mammals found here include elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and sable antelope and there are plans to re-introduce species such as giraffe and even black rhino. A wealth of nature along with never-before-seen landscapes serves to make this a true, undiscovered gem. Walking safaris are tailored to the wishes of the guests, varying from short strolls along the river to a nearby waterfall, to all-day hikes. A combined vehicle safari and ascent of Chipata Mountain in the west of the reserve and overnight safaris with fly camps. Sundowners at strategic points along the river are a particular highlight for many of our guests.
