Mvuu Wilderness Camp (Liwonde National Park) Malawi
Mvuu Camp is situated just south of Mvuu Lodge on the banks of the Shire River in Malawi's Liwonde National Park. Mvuu Camp offers a wide range of options including camping , self catering and full board rates with activities.
The activities on offer are the same as Mvuu Wilderness Lodge, but the camp is better suited either to families or those on a budget as rates are very reasonable. A particularly rewarding way of arriving at Mvuu Camp is via the boat trip from Liwonde Town.
This river trip takes you 30 kilometers along the Shire offering an excellent chance to see game and birds en route and also the ever changing scenery and vegetation along the banks.
There are nine comfortable walk in tents with shared facilities and five en suite brick chalets.
A large wood and thatch dining and lounge area is situated nearby and offers a magnificent view upstream to the north.
There is also a specially constructed boma for dinners under the stars.
Game Viewing / Activities:
Elephant and Sable Antelope occur in large numbers, as do Hippo, Crocodile, Impala and Waterbuck. Leopard, Serval and the rare Oribi may occasionally be seen.
Black Rhino have been reintroduced from South Africa's Kruger National Park, as have Zebra, Lichtenstein's Hartebeest, and Buffalo from elsewhere within Malawi.
Birds are prolific, especially along the Shire River where African Fish Eagle, Palmnut Vulture, African Skimmer and Pel's Fishing Owl are fairly common. Bohm's Bee-eater, Lilian's Lovebird, Bat Hawk, Livingstone's Flycatcher, Whitebacked Night Heron and Brownbreasted Barbet are among the "specials".
In addition to the main activities listed below, we do great bicycle trips from the boundary of Liwonde to the local villages outside the park, giving one a superb cultural experience. We also offer our guests the experience of a night in Ligwangwa, a typical rural Malawian village.
