Welcome to Muluwa Lodge
About our Lodge
Muluwa Lodge is ideally situated in the Mpumalanga Lowveld region of South Africa, boasting incredible views out and over the valleys and mountains of the area. The view, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, as well as a wonderful array of “plains” game species that graze close by creates a wonderful “Serengeti” type ambience.
“Muluwa” means “Flame Thorn” in the local Shangaan language, and is an indigenous tree with deep to purple-red flame-like seed pods, and scented creamy-yellow flowers which grow in clusters like sprouting caterpillars, over the mid-summer to early-autumn seasons. The Muluwa tree belongs to the well-known and wide spread Acacia Tree family, so realising the “thorn.”
