A remote safari destination offering some of the greatest wild sights in Africa

PLEASE NOTE: Lugenda Wilderness Camp is permanently closed for bookings. However it may be possible to charter the camp for a larger group. If you would like us to explore this option, please do get in touch.

At 22,000km squared, the Niassa Wildlife Reserve covers nearly one third of the Niassa Province in northern Mozambique. Along with the buffer area of 20,000km² the total region is twice the size of Kruger National Park in South Africa. With that in mind, the Lugenda Wilderness Camp is a difficult place to get to, but so worth the effort! The best way to travel is by light aircraft from Pemba airport – only the hardiest of travellers should contemplate driving.

The accommodation consists of eight luxury tents which have been situated a little way back from the banks of the Lugenda River. Each tent has its own patio deck with great views of the wild surroundings – and the occasional wild elephant attracted by the fig trees close by! The tents have a solid structure and offer every modern comfort - from king-size beds to en-suite bathrooms with power shower. The main building has a lounge, dining area and self-service bar, with a pool directly in front.

The comfortable, relaxed atmosphere at Lugenda Wilderness Camp embodies the spirit of the Mozambique wilderness. Qualified guides can take you on game drives to see such wildlife as impala, hippo, lions and elephants among much else. The bird life is also abundant with over 370 different species having been identified along the Rovuma River area. You can also choose to spend time simply relaxing in the camp pool overlooking the river and unwinding during the heat of the day. The camp is generally open from May to December to avoid the rainy season.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
