The Mushroom Presidential House, a unique site on the Mfuwe Lagoon inside the South Luangwa Park, was originally built in the early seventies to accommodate the Head of State and his VIP guests. Following the collapse of the UNIP government in 1991, Mushroom House was left abandoned until Matula Investments won the concession to re-develop the Mushroom Presidential house, and Mushroom Lodge as a commercial tourism development.

The property has been developed in such a way as to retain the heritage value of its historical past whilst adding value in terms of an appropriate range of amenities and facilities conducive for a full service modern safari lodge.

Mushroom Lodge offers comfortable, rustic but modern accommodation in six secluded thatched chalets set under Ebony trees along the Mfuwe Lagoon. Each chalet is well ventilated with large windows and high ceilings and decorated to create a rich African feel, and suite features include en-suite bathroom and indoor shower with a full range of amenities, separate toilet and an outside shower for complete comfort. A separate Lounge and private patio overlooking the Lagoon allows for close-up and safe viewing of birds and wildlife that frequently visit the lagoon. Mushroom Lodge is a child-friendly establishment, and also offers interleading chalets for families. Room facilities include: Queen size beds or single bed options, mosquito nets, hairdryers, tea and coffee making facilities, bath consumables (amenities), mini bar, in-room safes, private patio, fans and luggage rack.

Highly trained staff ensure the highest standards of hospitality and service at Mushroom Lodge and Presidential House, where your every whim is catered for. The Lodge has a swimming pool overlooking the Lagoon which brings welcome relief when temperatures soar. Guests can relax in the Nsaka with an entrance framed by Elephant Tusks of a size not seen anymore.

Guests can enjoy meals in the Dining area with uninterrupted views over the Lagoon, and often dinners are served in the Boma under the stars, however private drinks and meals can be arranged upon request. Adjoining the pool area, we have created an “Nsaka”, a sanctuary ideal for drinks, private dinners, meetings and wonderfully relaxing massages by a qualified masseuse.

In order for parents not to compromise their Game Viewing and Dining experiences, skilled baby sitters from the local communities can be arranged at a nominal fee. Families with children over the age of six are welcome at Mushroom Lodge and Presidential House. Children are welcomed with a booklet and games on arrival at the Camp in order for them to also experience the magic of the Wildlife in South Luangwa Park. Special meals can also be arranged for the little ones.
