Full Board Packages

We like things to be simple for our guests. These packages come with all the essentials bundled into one, accommodation, meals and game drives. There's more information below, and to make a package booking you can contact us by phone and WhatsApp on +260974595838, or by sending an email to  reservations@marulalodgezambia.com

What are the Packages All About?

  • All in one, keeping it easy

    Our packages are designed to give the best value for money, with the least involvement in booking. Rather than booking accommodation, and then activities as well as ordering food/using the self catering kitchen, you can choose any of our packages that come ready made, and save you some money on the way. These are usually our most popular options.

  • Seasonal deals

    We are in an area with a rainy season where the bush turns brilliant green and the birdlife increases dramatically. Sightings in the park are still great, and we reduce our rates to make this a more affordable time to visit.

    Our peak season runs from June to the end of October, and is the prime time for all activities. It does start to get hot towards the end of the year, but all rooms have fans, and the swimming pool is a great place to cool down.

  • What's Included?

    3 meals on each full day on the package from a set menu, Instant coffee, and Juice (from dinner on the day of arrival, to breakfast on the day of departure). Please notify us if you have any special dietary requirements prior to arrival.

    1 Shared morning game drive and 1 shared evening game drive on each full day on the package. Please note that game drives on the first night or last day of the package are optional extras. (Full itinerary available on request).

    10% Service Charge, 16% VAT, 1.5% Tourism Levy and 0.5% Skills Development Levy

Package Rates Tables

Our Peak and Emerald Season package rates can be found below. Please contact us for Citizen, Resident/Regional Resident and Agent rates. T's and C's apply.

This is how a standard full board  package runs.

The minimum length for an all inclusive package is 2 nights, as that provides one full day for activities. If you would like a package longer than 5 nights, or with some days as rest days, let us know by email and we will be happy to work with you.

On the arrival day, or the first day of your package if you're taking accommodation only here's how the timing works
On each day during the package, no matter how many nights you choose to stay, this is how the full days operate on all full board packages as standard. Remember, just ask if you'd like to change it up a bit.
Here's the program for the last day of your package. If you proceed on to a day or two of accommodation only, there's no need to check out. Just keep relaxing!
