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.

We have just finished our safari with Mfuwe lodge. I cannot help writing to you and saying thank you again for your professional safari guide and first class service.
My dad says he cannot believe this is Africa. His expectation for Africa has been completely overwhelmed :)

I must extend my thanks to Tendai for the seamless facilitation of our stay and also gratitude to you and the team at the lodge, the staff were awesome and Patson, our Guide, was just a full package, we surely couldn't have had a better guide. Full of knowledge and wisdom, what a charming fellow.
