Our Team

Musangano Lodge has gained an excellent reputation for its friendly and personalized service. Our team takes pride in greeting every guest with a warm welcome while striving to make his/her stay most enjoyable.  

Many staff members have been with Musangano since the early 2000s. When Gerd and Bigi set up the lodge, they knew that the quality of the staff would be essential for the business to thrive. They aimed at establishing a team that is responsible, motivated and driven by the desire to create an unforgettable stay for every guest. The loyalty, personal commitment and corporate identity of the team as well as the positive comments from clients about Musangano Lodge serve to underline our dedication to excellence. A very big thank you to all members of staff - present and previous - who played their individual part in developing the lodge into what it is today.
