At Mfuwe Lodge you will have the opportunity to participate in the African adventure of a lifetime at a luxurious standard of comfort and service unexpected in the bush. Overlooking a beautiful oxbow lagoon in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, our lodge provides the visitor with a special glimpse of Africa as she was - untouched, unspoilt and unforgettable.
Exciting wilderness adventures in an area that boasts one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in the world are matched by the enchantment of the lodge setting. There is no better way to forget the pressures of city life than to soak in the sights and sounds of the African bush from your chalet deck or on a game drive with an experienced and knowledgeable guide.
The lodge is 3km from the main gate of the South Luangwa National Park, and just a 45 minute transfer from Mfuwe International Airport. Each of the 18 thatched chalets overlooks one of the lodge's two lagoons, which attract abundant game activity during the day and night.
As water in the surrounding area dries out then animals
including hippo, elephant, buffalo, leopard and lion make
their way to the lagoons to drink. Each chalet provides 24
hour mains power, and is equipped with a ceiling fan,
refrigerator, tea and coffee making facilities, mosquito
nets, ensuite facilities with double vanities, separate
toilets and a sunken bath with integral shower.
Amenities and Services:
Meals are served in a variety of settings that are only limited by the imagination. Previous visitors have enjoyed brunch in the bush following an early morning game drive or a delicious dinner eaten by candlelight under the African stars while listening to lions coughing in the distance.
To maintain the lodge's tranquil setting none of our rooms are equipped with televisions, radios or telephones, how-ever we are in contact with the outside world via email, telephone and fax services which are available at reception.
For guests who wish to study the unique Zambian animals and plants they see while on safari we provide a reference library containing more than 300 wildlife books and videos. A conference center is also available to those guests who wish to combine game viewing with business.
Activities & Facilities:
Day and night time safaris with an experienced and knowledgeable guide are provided daily, or those more adventurous at heart can take the exciting option of a walking safari to view or track animals on foot with armed scout as protection.
Mfuwe Lodge is one of the few places in the South Luangwa National Park that stays open during the Green Season.
During this time the landscape in the valley changes into a lush green environment that attracts Wild Dogs as well as many species of migrating African and European birds.
