ZAMBEZI accommodation & fishing safaris


Your piece of peace on the Upper Zambezi

At Mutemwa Lodge it’s our belief that every Upper Zambezi experience should encompass everything that makes the Zambezi river magical. This includes quality tiger fishing on a remote and private piece of the Zambezi, wonderful bird life, stunning sunsets, a roaring fire at night all complimented by superb hospitality and great food.
