When To Visit Mozambique:

Vast and remote, Lugenda is great for safari enthusiasts and explorers, but it is not a place for first-timers.

Set on the banks of the wide Lugenda River, this camp is much more luxurious than one might expect, considering this is one of Africa’s most unexplored areas.

Lugenda Wilderness Camp is the only camp in Northern Mozambique’s Niassa Reserve. It is a remote location that few travellers visit – the perfect destination for people who like to visit destinations few others have been to.

The eight rooms are raised up onto wooden platforms and are very spacious. They are tented with thatched roofs; not only are the beds king-size and very comfortable, but each suite has its own en suite bathroom, complete with his and hers washbasins as well as baths!

Lugenda Wilderness is run by the Rani hotel chain, who also own various beach lodges in the area. It is therefore common to link a visit to Lugenda with a stay in one of their beach properties – specifically Matemo or Medjumbe. Although it has plenty of elephant, wild dog and sable antelope, we do not think this park is suitable for first-timers in search of a big game experience. It is better suited to safari enthusiasts and explorers who are more likely to enjoy this vast wilderness.
