Full Board Package Rates

(Emerald Season)

When the river is high, the valley is resting and the wildlife is full of the blessings of the rains, Marula Lodge is still open and running as usual (barring the occasional minor flood).

Since it's the quiet season, we drop our rates right down so that we can stay open all year and show the world the beauty of South Luangwa in it's emerald season. The bird life, the lush green bush, the animals celebrating, giving birth, stocking up for the dry season to come, contrary to popular belief there is still an abundance of nature worth the visit.
