Mfuwe Lodge
Just to let you know that we had an amazing time at the lodge. So many animals! And about one hour before leaving the elephants came walked through reception to eat the grass and ate my peanut butter and fruit (it was with my luggage in a cooler bag). That was quite funny. We also did the walking safari which was lovely.

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 a great time in Luangwa Valley and now we are back in Malawi. The weekend was awesome and was really great to meet the team at Mfuwe. We want you to know we enjoyed our stay – although it was very brief. Your staff were really very helpful and informative. Our guide; Charles was very brilliant and knowledgeable. He did a great job alongside his spotter; Jones. Please extend our gratitude to Ian, Andy and Jo.

We wanted to, again, say thanks for having us at your fantastic lodge.
