Striking scenery in a vast isolated reserve
Overall rating

Arriving by small aircraft at Niassa Reserve was quite overwhelming. I hadn’t expected something quite as dramatic. Big granite domes rise up from the plains with the Lugenda river meandering through. We were staying at the only lodge in this vast reserve – a small tented camp on the bank of the river. We were also the only clients, which made the experience even more exclusive. There wasn’t a lot of wildlife, but we enjoyed ambles in the bush and we got excited when we came across a cheeky elephant or a stately sable antelope. The highlight was a canoeing trip on the river. Again, we didn’t see much wildlife, but we walked around on some sandbanks and it felt like we were the only people around in this huge, forested wild area.
