Mvuu Camp

Found in the Liwonde National Park, Mvuu Camp offers excellent game viewing in Malawi's premier wildlife haven. Guests can look out from the property and watch as numerous game come to drink from the Shire River, which runs alongside the camp. Crocodile and hippo call the river home and are joined by a wide diversity of birdlife. Guests can get a closer look at the local wildlife via a boat trip into camp. While Mvuu is easily reached by air streaming down the river is a fantastic experience and certainly adds to the authenticity of a stay.

Review of Mvuu Camp

Laurent & Karin Vuichard

Definitively what we were looking for when imagining our trip to Malawi with our little boy. The 4 days spent at Mvuu Camp were so relaxing that we got the feeling we spent much more days there.
