Mvuu Lodge

Mvuu Lodge has a secluded wilderness setting in Liwonde National Park, one of Malawi's most prolific areas of wilderness. The intimate lodge overlooks a tranquil lagoon that is located just off the Shire River, in an area that is surrounded by lush vegetation and towering Borassus palms. Mvuu means "hippo" in the Chichewa language, inspired by the large pods of hippos that inhabit the surrounding waters of the Shire.
