My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at Mvubu.The accommodation was excellent, the meals were delicious and the staff could not have done more to make our stay so memorable. We saw many different animals and birds on the river cruise. In the afternoon we did a game drive and saw giraffe, rhino, elephant, buffalo and kudu.Would thoroughly recommend it for a relaxing memorable stay.
