Mufindi Highlands Lodge

Southern Highlands

Open All Year

Surrounded by forests and tea plantations, Mufindi Highlands Lodge provides an ideal retreat after the heat, dust and commotion of your safari. The main lodge has been constructed with local stone and wood with beautiful views over the lakes and rows of tea.

The lodge was built in 1997 on a 2000 acre private estate quite removed from the normal tourist attractions. Local villages surround the working estate that produces it’s own meat, dairy and vegetables. The lake is great for canoeing and swimming in the warmer months.

The main lodge area has a very warm and inviting lounge area that surrounds the fire, a small library is available if you need some reading material. The main dining room has very good views out over the lakes and valley below. Upstairs there is a smaller sitting area with fire place, TV room and a billiards room. The deck is a great place to take in the sunset.


Well spaced along the side of the hill and with great views from each the 10 wooden chalets are very cozy and well decorated. All of the chalets can be made up with two twin beds or a single double bed.

Each chalet has two very spacious rooms with their own en-suite bathroom and un upstairs lounge and balcony.

There is also a honeymoon chalet that has it’s own fireplace, a room for special occasions and space for children if you are traveling with your family.
