Discover Tongole Wilderness Lodge


Tongole Wilderness Lodge is a eco-lodge in the middle of miombo woodland in Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve.

Guests are accommodated in 4 suites and 2 cottages which are 2 bedroomed, allowing for even families to enjoy the lodge.

The reserve has some amazing flora and fauna. Elephants, bushbuck, warthogs, waterbuck and baboons are often see from the lodge. African Parks relocated 500 elephants (from Majete Wildlife Reserve and Liwonde National Park) along with a selection of herbivores back in 2016. This has naturally boosted the game here.
