Tundwe has not been properly operational for many years, despite its beautiful situation on the banks of the Luangwa, about 25km southwest of Mfuwe, on the road between Mfuwe and the park's Lusangazi ferry crossing. It has been recently taken over by new owners, who plan to refurbish it and re-open it – so it's likely that it will start operating by 2005.
It currently has six two-storey A-frame chalets, with two smaller beds on an upper level and two down below. All have an en-suite shower (hot water heated by wood boiler) and flush toilet, mosquito nets, and electricity in the evening. There is a separate dining/lounge area, self-service tea and coffee and a swimming pool.
Nearby are some hot springs and (I'm told) an area of quicksand – while 4WD game drives, walks and village visits in the surrounding GMA are provided. Across the river in the park, but owned by Tundwe, is a small walking bushcamp: Zebra Plain Bushcamp, which will probably also be opened when the main lodge opens again.
