The four River Cottages can be used as doubles or twins.
Tongole Wilderness Lodge offers luxurious, open-fronted, riverside suites on the banks of the lovely Bua River, which blend in perfectly with their unique natural setting.
The River Cottages are built from the same red earth, rock, wood and thatch upon which Tongole stands and incorporate the very best of local Malawian culture.
Each spacious room possesses panoramic views over the river and forest and are a cool and breezy haven during the heat of the day.
All the rooms have sumptuous, super-king sized double beds (6ft x 6ft 6in) or twin beds; which can also be joined seamlessly together to form a super king.
Each cottage is supplied with 240v power and hot running water at all times, with shower, twin marble basins, flush lavatory and large hand-built sunken baths – doubling as a plunge-pools, ‘with a view’ during the day.
Spectacular raised wooden decks afford a tranquil and private space to relax and watch the river and forest wildlife go by.
The Deluxe River Tent – twin/double is elegant and spacious, with its ‘canvas under thatch’ accommodation situated on the banks of the lovely Bua River.
The specially designed living space has stone floors and a high ceiling which, along with its large windows, allow it to remain pleasantly cool and breezy even during the hottest time of day.
The double-doors open out onto a raised wooden deck with wonderful vistas over the river below. The Tent’s luxurious twin beds can also be joined seamlessly together to form a sumptuous, super king sized double bed (6ft wide x 6ft 6in long).
The large en-suite bathroom is built from stone (in keeping with the River Cottage structures) and consists of a sunken bath ‘with a view’; twin marble basins and a flush lavatory. From the bathroom a raised walkway leads a short distance to a secluded open-air shower overlooking the river and hills.
The room is supplied with 240v power and hot running water at all times.
