Mfuwe Lodge
I just wanted to say a BIG thankyou for all you and the Mfuwe staff have done to ensure we had a superb time in Luangwa. I really had no idea what to expect before we arrived, but we were soon swept up in the welcome and atmosphere of the lodge. We absolutely loved the accommodation, the swimming pool and the decking lounge. I felt so relaxed there. I found the staff to be awesome. They were so willing to please and very hospitable. We loved our guide, Francis. He is so knowledgeable about wildlife and the bush and we had so many laughs with him....actually, we loved the morning tea times and sundowner times when we could chat and banter with him (and Isaiah). Please thank them again for us for the superb time we had with them.

Thankyou too, for the copious quantities of delicious food. We certainly never went hungry. There were so many highlights on the food front, the variety of food and the wonderful bush brunch, I loved that.

We had the most memorable stay at Mfuwe Lodge - we still can't get over the fact that it was just the two of us there :) The staff were lovely and the accommodation was brilliant. We look forward to coming back next year!!

I just wanted to write and say thank you to you and everyone at the Bushcamp company for such an unforgettable holiday! We are back in the Big Smoke (London) and already wishing we were back in the bush.
We also wanted to give special mention to Shadi, Peter, Prist, Alex, Julius, Abraham and Dickson and everyone else who hosted us and those behind the scenes.
