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.
The lodge has 8 tents, one of which is a romantic honeymoon suite. Each tent is en-suite with a private deck that overlooks the water's edge. The facilities of the lodge include a dining room, lounge area and a swimming pool. Just 4kms north of the lodge are Mvuu's Star Beds which overlook the floodplains and offer you the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and spend a memorable night under the stars.
