Blog > Welcome to the Mandina Lodges blog

We're delighted to introduce our brand-new blog, home to all kinds of news and information about the Makasutu Forest.

What's our blog all about? 

First thing's first - welcome to the all-new Mandina Lodges blog, we're delighted that you've stopped by.

Our aim is simple - to provide you with all the information and inspiration you could ever need about our beautiful lodges and the vast Makasutu Forest, which has become our home. To give you a flavour of what you can expect from Mandina Lodges and to highlight the beauty of the surrounding area, here's some of our favourite images...

We hope you find this blog both informative and inspiring, and remember there's plenty more information about the lodges and local area on our website. Here, we also tell you all about how our founders, James English and Lawrence Williams, discovered the area and started their incredible tourism project.
