About Mfuwe Lodge

Mfuwe Lodge has 18 thatched chalets each overlooking one of the lodge's two lagoons, which attract abundant wildlife during the day and night. During the dry season as water in the surrounding area dries out game including hippo, elephant, buffalo, leopard and lion come down to the lagoon.

Each chalet provides 24 hour mains power, and is equipped with a ceiling fan, refrigerator, tea and coffee making facilities, mosquito nets, ensuite facilities with double vanities, separate toilets and a sunken bath with integral shower.

Meals are served in a variety of settings that are only limited by the imagination. Previous visitors have enjoyed brunch in the bush following an early morning game drive or a delicious dinner eaten by candlelight under the African stars while listening to lions coughing in the distance.

Day and night time safaris with an experienced and knowledgeable guide are provided daily, or those more adventurous at heart can take the exciting option of a walking safari to view or track animals on foot with armed scout as protection.

To maintain the lodge's tranquil setting none of our rooms are equipped with televisions, radios or telephones, however we are in contact with the outside world via email, telephone and fax services which are available at reception.

For guests who wish to study the unique Zambian animals and plants they discover during their safari can use the reference library containing more than 300 wildlife books and videos. A conference centre is also available to those guests who wish to combine game viewing with business.

Mfuwe Lodge is one of the few places in the South Luangwa National Park that stays open during the Green Season. During this time the landscape in the valley changes into a lush green environment that attracts Wild Dogs as well as many species of migrating African and European birds.
