Mfuwe Lodge
I have been meaning to drop you all at Mfuwe an email to thank-you for everything.
Starting from making the reservations, all the way to the very end moment of our stay. At Mfuwe Lodge and Kuyenda, we were blown away with the wonderful service and care we received.
Both my husband, Mike, and I feel there is nowhere else in Zambia that you receive that kind of service. From the moment we arrived we felt we were family. Nothing was too much effort and everyone was bubbling over with enthusiasm all the time.
Would you be so kind to ensure our gratitude does get shared with everyone at the Lodge as well as Kuyenda.
To name a few, Amy, Lisa, Suzio, Mishak and Aussie are all such great people, wonderful hosts and outstanding in what they did. Everyone was...
Thank-you to you all for making our trip one we will never ever forget
We look forward to visiting again, hopefully soon.

What a wonderful setting. The sight of elephants crossing the river and feeding feet from our room with us watching from the deck will stay with us for ever.
