Mfuwe lodge hippos in the river 2400
Discover 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.

The lodge offers guests 18 chalets comprised of 2 suites, 3 family rooms, 3 doubles and 10 twin rooms. Each chalet is equipped with a private deck, en-suite shower, international power sockets, hair dryers, personal safe, mosquito nets and fans. There is also a Director's House, complete with 2 en-suite bedrooms and a private guide and vehicle. The open-plan central area incorporates reception, lounge, dining and bar areas. There is a broad timber deck where the swimming pool is located which overlooks the main lagoon. Other facilities include a library, Bush Spa and a curio shop. The lodge also features a new photographic studio with workshop facilities for the avid photographer.

Special offers: Book for 7 nights or more (multiple camps can be combined) and receive a 10% discount on your stay. Last minute bookings: Book within 2 months of your travel date and receive a 30% discount on your stay. These offers are valid until 30 December 2024. Terms and conditions apply.
