Mfuwe Lodge

Mfuwe Lodge in the South Luangwa National Park is spread out beneath a canopy of ebony and mahogany trees. 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. In November the local elephants regularly wander right through the lobby, lured by a nearby wild mango tree.
