Set out from any of these secluded, intimate camps and you will be guaranteed an unrivalled wildlife experience in one of the last unspoilt wilderness regions of Africa – the very place where the African walking safari was pioneered.

Guest Comments

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 feel very blessed in everyway.
We look forward to visiting again, hopefully soon.

Mfuwe Lodge
Congratulations on selection into National Geographic "Unique Lodges of the World." Does not surprise me one bit. Our stay with you was one of our top lifetime experiences. Not a day goes by that I don't think about or chat about what we did and saw there, what guests and you all might be seeing and doing at that moment, wishing we were there. We continue to enjoy seeing the wonderful images by Ian and guests via emails and Facebook.
