Mfuwe Lodge
You are the first person I am writing to on our return back to the U.S. after a most incredible time in Mfuwe Lodge.

The S. Luangwa National Park was incredible (my favorite out of all the parks in all the other countries that we have been to).

The wildlife, our guide Francis, our spotter Charles, the night game drives, the Mfuwe lodge, our beautiful chalet over-looking the hippo pool, all the staff, Andy (whom we met and were greeted by personally), Amy, Jill- all were exceptional!
We saw so much wildlife & birds. We saw leopards every game drive and our favorite activity was to track them at night game drives when they are most active. In fact all game drives we saw 2-3 leopards!

We were lucky to see early S. Carmine bee eaters! Gorgeous birds!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your help and for helping us with this trip of a lifetime celebrating our first time to Africa with kids, and also our 40 country milestone!

Sorry to take a few days to write this note to all the staff at Mfuwe Lodge, and Chindeni. My family group said it "was the trip of a lifetime" Thank you all for making it a great success. Susan was a wonderful host at Chindeni. The entire group loved her and it was obvious she had a great rapport with her staff. Hope to see her back next season. All the staff at the lodge worked hard to ensure the group had a great time. it was great the Elephants cooperated too. A special thank you to Francis who drove us to camp in the torrential rain. His driving skills have really progressed since Ian, Lisa and I took him out on training trips. Peter Milanzi was terrific. His knowledge of the bush made the tour really special. The group would like the e mail of the Royal Geographic Society to nominate him for guide of the year. Please send to me and I will forward to my clients. Mtimba, zikomo for having the sun downer at Ele crossing. It was fantastic and made the farewell evening very
