This award-winning safari lodge in the most wildlife-rich section of South Luangwa National Park is the perfect place from which to enjoy Zambia’s excellent game viewing. Tucked beneath the canopy of huge ebony and mahogany trees on the banks of two beautiful lagoons, Mfuwe Lodge offers guests the African safari experience of a lifetime.
The South Luangwa National Park is renowned for its prolific game – giraffe, buffalo, antelope and crocodile are constant visitors to the lagoons, while in November the resident elephants wander right through the lobby of Mfuwe Lodge along an ancient, time-honoured trail leading to a nearby wild mango tree!
Mfuwe Lodge lies beside two lagoons where an endless stream of wildlife enthralls guests lounging on the open deck or taking a dip in the swimming pool. Dawn and evening game drives led by experienced game rangers capitalise on the times of day when wildlife is at its most active. After sundowners, spotlights pick out a new cast of nocturnal visitors to Mfuwe Lodge and lagoons.
Other activities include walking safaris, cultural visits to nearby villages, treatments at the lodge’s Bush Spa and shopping at the Tribal Textiles Curio Shop. The airy, newly refurbished interior is the perfect complement to its natural surroundings. The open-plan design acknowledges that an African wilderness experience is a blend of colours, textures, sounds, aromas and sights unmatched anywhere else in the world. Scattered along the lagoons’ banks lie 18 thatched chalets where guests can enjoy their own private piece of Africa.
Secluded covered verandas overlook wallowing hippo and thirsty game in the lagoons, while the African interiors are the perfect place to wind down, with their comfy sitting rooms and en-suite bathrooms with panoramic walk-in showers. One third of each chalet’s perimeter can be opened to allow guests to appreciate untramelled views and the sounds and scents of the African bush.
At Mfuwe Lodge guests can glimpse wild Africa the way it once was: untouched, unspoilt and unforgettable. Here comfort, luxury, service and game-rich nature combine to give guests the perfect African safari experience..
