Mfuwe Lodge
Had a great time at Mfuwe, the resort was the right choice for the occasion as my sister's health is very precarious and we wanted to be close to an airstrip just in case she had a problem. The accommodation was wonderful, could sit on that balcony forever watching the game come to drink, the rooms were bigger and better than expected and I particularly like the separate loo. The food was amazing and majority of the staff were friendly and helpful, our guide was extremely knowledgeable not just about the animals and birds but also the trees and plants, he varied the game drive routes every day and would always ask what we wanted to look for and try his best to find it for us. Have never seen so much game in Zambia: saw two lion kills (one in the hippo lagoon!) and leopard every day, usually two or three times but the best for me was seeing a family of wild dog with two pups, have never seen that before!
