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.

Just a quick email to say that I have just had a phone call from these clients…I have never heard such happy clients! They really loved their time in Zambia and were very appreciative for all of the arrangements that we had in place for them – particularly helping them to visit chipata. So a HUGE thank you to you for this one as it was a bit of a tricky itinerary.
They also loved their time at Mfuwe Lodge and found the staff to be excellent and very friendly, and they saw huge amounts of wildlife.
So, all in all, they had a fantastic time!

We had such a lovely holiday at Mfuwe Lodge- thank you so much for the bottle of wine and the planning. Our safaris were all great and we saw many animals, our room was spectacular -complete with hippos, a resident croc and a monitor lizard passing by. The food and hospitality was wonderful and we feel rested and ready to tackle these last couple weeks.
