South Luangwa National Park
Mfuwe Lodge is one of the most beautiful lodges we have been to in Africa. You are warmly greeted with an ice cold drink when you arrive before you begin to explore why this lodge has such a famous reputation. Walk out onto the deck and look down onto the river. Baboon, elephant, bushbuck and may other species calmly wander past. The main area is set under a huge thatch roof and alfresco dining is offered each evening.
Mfuwe Lodge is the gateway to her 6 incredible bush camps. We would recommend you spend at least two nights here before exploring some of the bush camps. Morning and evening drives as well as guided walks are the highlights and are usually very rewarding game viewing. A gym and swimming pool is also on site if you feel like more adrenaline between game drives.
Walking safaris were first introduced in this park many years ago by Norman Carr who came to the Valley as an Elephant Control Officer of the British government in the 1930’s.
The rooms at Mfuwe Lodge are set out in lush grounds which attracts hippo, baboon and elephants. The famous mango trees attract Wonky Tusk and her herd that walk through the lodge each year. A swimming pool and deck overlook the river.
Mfuwe Lodge is our #5 family safari lodge in Zambia.

As there are several bush camps to choose from and it’s an excellent idea to spend at least 2 nights at each have a look at Kuyenda, Zungulila, Kapamba, Chindeni, Chamilandu or Bilimungwe.
Mix your safari up, our experts also recommend Kafunta River Lodge.
