Profile

Ease yourself into Luangwa life with a stay at the award-winning Mfuwe Lodge. Set inside the park, just five minutes drive from the main gate, the lodge's allure is instantly obvious. Beneath a canopy of ebony and mahogany, its thatched buildings are arranged around the banks of two lagoons where an endless stream of wildlife will keep you enthralled as you lounge on the open deck or take a dip in the swimming pool. The airy interior of the lodge is an exquisite complement to its natural surroundings.

This region of the park is renowned for its prolific game - giraffe, hippos, buffalo, antelope, and crocodile are constant visitors to Mfuwe Lodge's lagoon, whilst in November the local elephants regularly wander right through the lobby, lured by a nearby wild mango tree. Whether you stay overnight, or just have lunch en route to a Bushcamp, Mfuwe Lodge's relaxed charm and enviable surroundings make it the perfect stopover. Voted Best Lodge in Zambia in 2009 Mfuwe Lodge also offers you the chance to relax at its Bush-Spa or buy a few mementos of your time in Zambia at our curio shop.

Rooms

Scattered along two lagoons' shady banks lie 18 thatched chalets from which you can enjoy your own private piece of Africa. Secluded covered verandas look out over wallowing hippo and thirsty game in the lagoons, while the comfortable sitting rooms and en-suite bathrooms with panoramic walk-in showers are the perfect place to wind down.

Activities

The game-viewing potential at Mfuwe Lodge and the surrounding area is second-to-none. Walking safaris can be arranged on request, but the majority of outings are game drives, allowing guests to explore as much of this prolific region of the Luangwa Valley as possible. Drives are led by our experienced team of guides, setting out at first light, and then again in the late afternoon when the wildlife is at its most active. After sundowners, spotlights are used to pick out a new cast of nocturnal creatures.

What a wonderful start to our holiday. Great guiding, staff and food and hospitality. Thank you all.

I just wanted to let you know that we had a great time on our trip. We got a little wet, but it didn’t slow us down too much. Our guide was Manda, and he was fantastic. We really enjoyed meeting as the great staff. Thanks for all of your help with the arrangements. I hope we will be back again before long.

We have been meaning to write to you to thank you for the most incredible holiday that we had with you last November and apologise for taking so long to do it. Thanks again for helping us to organise everything so quickly and efficiently last minute. If it had not been for your efficiency & quick responses, it would have been impossible to organise this wonderful trip at such short notice. We loved the 7 nights we spent with you. Amy- it was wonderful to get to meet you in person and to be able to chat with you while we were staying at Mfuwe Lodge and Andy, we really hope to meet you in person next time we go to Zambia, which will be very soon hopefully! We spent 2 nights at Mfuwe Lodge, 2 nights at Kapamba & 3 nights at Bilimungwe. Thank you again & hope to see you soon again in South Luangwa.
