Mvuu Wilderness Lodge (Liwonde National Park) Malawi
The 580,000 hectares of Liwonde National Park is situated in the south of Malawi, and is Malawi's premier wildlife reserve. Liwonde incorporates the huge and scenic Shire River as well as quiet backwaters and lagoons, marshes, open savannah country, woodland and hills.
As a result of the wide variety of habitats, there is a great diversity of plant, animal and birdlife present. The birdlife is particularly good - it is possibly the best birding location in central and southern Africa. The record for a 2 night stay is 266 species!
Mvuu Wilderness Lodge boasts one of the most stunning settings, situated along the banks of the Shire River, within the Liwonde National Park.
Discreetly tucked away into the thick riverine vegetation, each tent has its own private view of the palm fringed lagoon which abounds with exciting bird life.
The main dining room / bar / lounge is a raised thatched rondavel overlooking the spectacular Shire River where Elephants at play, snoozing Hippos and basking Crocodiles are often to be viewed.
Our tented rooms offer luxury en-suite facilities for only 10 persons including an unique stone and quartz honeymoon suite! Enjoy meals on the deck under thatch and relax at the pool in-between activities!
Game Viewing / Activities:
Elephant and Sable Antelope occur in large numbers, as do Hippo, Crocodile, Impala and Waterbuck. Lion, Leopard, Serval and the rare Oribi may occasionally be seen. Black Rhino have recently been re-introduced from South Africa's Kruger National Park, and there are plans to bring back White Rhino and Buffalo.
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 Love Bird, Bat Hawk, Livingstone's Fly Catcher, Whitebacked Night Heron and Brownbreasted Barbet are among the "specials".
The Mvuu Hiking Trail is now available for those who enjoy walking in game reserves. Two nights walking and camping out in remote areas of the Liwonde Nat. Park is a highlight - but it must be booked well in advance! We also do great bicycle trips from the boundary of Liwonde to the local villages, giving a superb cultural experience.
