Location

Msandile River Lodge is located at the confluence of Msandile River and Luangwa River in the Upper Lupande Game Management Area. The entire lodge overlooks the Luangwa River along the river's banks at a busy wildlife crossing point.

The secluded environment is characterized by untouched wilderness and it is only possible to reach the lodge with an off-road capable four-wheel drive vehicle. One has to turn off from the main road in Mfuwe that leads up to the main gate of the national park and then follow an unsurfaced road through the Nsefu Sector in order to reach Msandile River Lodge.

South Luangwa National Park

The South Luangwa National Park has a long history of photographic safaris and the people involved have tried to maintain the highest standards of guiding and game viewing. To do this, they have to have guidelines that they ask all guides in the South Luangwa National Park to follow whenever possible. These guidelines are for the protection of the environment and to ensure all guests’ experiences of the South Luangwa National Park are as they should be.

To ensure the animals are not distressed by too many vehicles at a time, they ask guides to avoid having more than three vehicles on a sighting at any one time. Therefore if your vehicle is the first on a sighting, please do not expect the guide to stay for too long if there are other vehicles waiting. If you are the fourth vehicle there, the guide will wait for a short time away from the sighting until the first vehicle pulls off. We realise that sometimes this means that not everyone gets to see the best sightings but there is always next time!

To protect the flora and fauna of the area, they ask guides not to drive “off road”. There is a lot of life you are not necessarily aware of inhabiting the scrub just off the roads (birds’ nests, lichens rich in minerals, rare plants etc). Therefore if you ask your driver to “drive a bit further off the road so I can get a better photograph” he should tell you that he can’t and explain to you why. Therefore please do not ask!

We all have a responsibility to protect the area’s natural resources for the future and at the same time give you the best game viewing experience in Africa. Please help us to do both by being understanding when a guide may have to say “no”.
