South Luangwa Nat Park
About Mfuwe Lodge
Mfuwe Lodge is a safari lodge set in the most prolific game area of the South Luangwa. The perfect place to enjoy excellent game viewing and recharge your batteries. 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.
This region of the park is renowned for its prolific game such as giraffe, buffalo, antelope and crocodile which are constant visitors to Mfuwe Lodge’s lagoon, whilst in November the local elephants regularly wander right through the lobby. Whether you stay overnight, or just have lunch en route to a bush camp, Mfuwe Lodge’s relaxed charm and enviable surroundings make it the perfect stopover. 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.
We offer 18 thatched chalets from where you can enjoy your own private piece of Africa. Secluded covered verandahs look out over wallowing hippo’s and thirsty game in the lagoons, while the newly refurbished African interiors are the perfect place to wind down with their comfortable sitting rooms and en-suite bathrooms with walk-in showers.
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.
