Malawi’s Tongole Wilderness Lodge awarded Best in Africa in 3 categories in the 2018 Safari Awards.
-Best Community Focused Safari property in Africa
-Best Ecologically Responsible Safari property in Africa
-Best Value Safari property in Africa
Tongole lodge overlooks the Bua River in the heart of Malawi’s Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve (NWR). The reserve has also been in the spotlight recently, due to one of the largest elephant translocations ever; with 500 more elephants being introduced, making Nkhotakota a vital sanctuary for the conservation of Africa’s elephants.
As part of its ecological focus, Tongole offers a unique ‘slow safari’ experience, with guests exploring the reserve primarily by canoe or on foot and motorised activities are kept to a minimum. This allows guests to fully appreciate the tranquility of this magnificent 1800 square kilometer reserve; in which Tongole is the only luxury lodge. Tongole also offers a variety of other activities, including community visits, providing an authentic opportunity to discover Malawian culture and witness firsthand some of the work that the Tongole Foundation is doing.
