Overview Of Resort
The Lugenda Wildlife Reserve, in the Niassa province of Northern Mozambique, is an untouched and undiscovered 42 000 square kilometre expanse of wilderness. Lugenda Wilderness Camp is situated within this magnificent reserve, on the eastern bank of the Lugenda River, amongst the Ngalongue Mountains (towering inselbergs or island mountains). The Serra Mecula is positioned across from the camp.
It was on Mecula Mountain that Paul Von Lettow Vorbeck and his men held up towards the end of their incredible First World War East African Campaign against 1.5 million allied troops, finally arriving in Zambia still undefeated at the end of the war. There are sacred sites on the mountain, and Batwa (Pigmy) paintings, possibly dating back 4 000 years, have recently been found in the Reserve.
