Award-winning Mfuwe Lodge in South Luangwa By The Bushcamp Company

The South Luangwa’s most game-rich region is home to this award-winning safari resort. The ideal spot to rest your weary legs, see some wildlife up close, or begin and end your adventure to our bushcamps.

Stay at the multi-award winning Mfuwe Lodge to ease into Luangwa life. Located within the park and only a short drive from the main gate, the lodge has an immediate charm. The 18 air-conditioned chalets are set around two lagoons under an ebony and mahogany canopy. As you swim in the pool or relax on the open deck, you’ll be enchanted by the endless stream of wildlife. The open floor plan of the lodge goes wonderfully with the lush landscaping outside.

In November, local elephants frequently roam directly through the lobby, enticed by a nearby wild mango tree. This part of the park is famous for its numerous wildlife, including crocodiles, antelope, giraffe, hippos, buffalo, and the lagoon at Mfuwe Lodge. With its laid-back vibe and picturesque setting, Mfuwe Lodge is the ideal place to stop for the night or lunch on the way to a Bushcamp. Guests of Mfuwe Lodge, which was named the best lodge in Zambia in 2009, can unwind in the Bush-Spa or peruse the curio shop for unique souvenirs to remember their stay in the country by.

Accommodations: Enjoy your own little slice of Africa from one of eighteen air-conditioned cottages spread out along the shaded banks of two lagoons. Relax in the plush sitting areas or soak up some R&R in the en-suite bathrooms with panoramic walk-in showers; secluded covered verandas offer views of the lagoons’ wallowing hippos other parched wildlife.

Things to Do: Mfuwe Lodge and its environs offer unparalleled opportunities to see wildlife. While walking safaris are available upon request, guests will mostly go on game drives to cover as much ground as possible in this fertile Luangwa Valley region. At dawn light and again in the late afternoon, when animals are most active, our knowledgeable team of guides leads drives. Following sundowners, a different group of nighttime animals are identified using spotlights.
