On the 14th of September, under the African sky and amidst the untamed beauty of Gwahumbe Game Reserve, we gathered to mark a significant milestone. Three years to the day since a devastating fire swept through our beloved main lodge, reducing it to ashes, we celebrated the triumphant re-opening of the Gwahumbe Main Lodge.
The evening was a testament to the incredible love and support that has carried us through the challenges of the past few years. Our hearts were filled with gratitude as we welcomed members of the community, suppliers, guests, family, and friends who joined us in this celebration. As the music played late into the night, new memories were etched into the fabric of our lodge, enriching its history.
The new main lodge, proudly perched atop the mountain, stands as a symbol of resilience and renewal. Its design embodies the essence of Gwahumbe, with an uncluttered interior framed by expansive glass doors that beckon your gaze outward to the untamed African bush. We wanted to ensure that the outside world was seamlessly woven into our lodge, allowing nature to remain an integral part of the Gwahumbe experience.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who joined us at the re-opening. Your support, encouragement, and unwavering belief in our vision have been the driving force behind our journey to rebuild. It’s with immense pride that we look upon the new lodge, a testament to what can be achieved when a community comes together with resilience and determination.
Gwahumbe Game Lodge and Spa is more than just a destination; it’s a reflection of the indomitable spirit that resides within all of us. Here, amidst the embrace of nature, we invite you to appreciate the echoes of the past, cherish the beauty of the present, and join us in creating new memories that will forever intertwine with the rich legacy of Gwahumbe.
As we move forward, we are excited to welcome old friends and new guests to experience the magic of Gwahumbe once more. Our doors are open, and our hearts are filled with gratitude for your support and enthusiasm. Here’s to a future filled with unforgettable moments and the enduring spirit of Gwahumbe. Thank you for being a part of our remarkable journey.
With love, the Gwahumbe team.
