Nunda River Lodge

Lodge in Bwabwata National Park

This very welcoming lodge has an appealing aesthetic comprising stone buildings with thatched roofs and wooden decks on the river’s edge. It’s really well set up, with relaxing common areas overlooking the water where you can catch the breeze. The campsites are excellent, with sites 6 and 7 the best; all have power, braai (barbecue) plates and bins.

Safari tents are also on the riverbank, with a small table and chair on the deck out the front to enjoy the water views. Chalets are set up in a similar way to the safari tents but are roomier and have bigger bathrooms – but if it’s the views you’re after, go for a safari tent. Rates are often reduced if they’re not busy.
