Mussicadzi River magic

Set discreetly along the curves of the Mussicadzi River, which flows towards Lake Urema in Mozambique, Muzimu Lodge is the definition of understated elegance. The exclusive tented lodge offers a balance between serenity and adventure in the almost never-ending wilderness of Gorongosa National Park.

Bird lovers will find themselves in paradise, while the diverse wildlife, including lions, African wild dogs, elephants, and countless antelopes, promise thrilling encounters. Guests can look forward to exploring vast and enchanting landscapes, from mesmerising floodplains to mystical palm and fever tree forests. Furthermore, game drives, nature walks and water safaris are staple favourites among guests staying at Muzimu, with Gorongosa National Park fervent in its commitment to conservation. Opt for a Mount Gorongosa excursion to visit the Coffee Project, where local farmers plant shade-grown coffee to rejuvenate the rainforest. Or, embark on a short hike leading to a waterfall, which is perfect for a refreshing dip in clear pools, followed by a picnic beside the serene rainforest streams. Furthermore, we recommend taking a peek behind the scenes at the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Lab to discover how the Lab's groundbreaking work is shaping the future of restoration in the region and beyond. 

Back at Muzimu Lodge, you’ll find accommodation in the form of East African-style canvas tents, each with an ensuite and private timber deck overlooking the wilderness. The bar and lounge are welcoming spaces to relax after a day of exploration, while the pool and dining decks provide dazzling views of the Mussicadzi River. Every detail at Muzimu is crafted to connect you with the unique landscapes and wildlife of Gorongosa, ensuring an authentic and unforgettable experience.
