The South Luangwa Park is famous for its walking safaris. There is simply no better way of viewing the untamed African wildlife than on foot. Why not start your adventure at the Mushroom Lodge?

Best Time To Be There

The dry season, which runs from April to October, is the most favorable time. Walking safaris are undertaken at the Mushroom Lodge during this period. With the shortage of water, more animals gather at the dwindling water sources. This in itself makes for a great spectacle.


The Mushroom Lodge guarantees you quality service at your disposal. On offer are comfortably furnished and luxurious guest rooms in its six thatched chalets with en-suite bathroom, indoor shower, an outside shower and a separate toilet.
