The award-winning Mfuwe Lodge, built under thatch and supported by palm tree poles, is situated in Zambia's game-rich Luangwa Valley in the South Luangwa National Park, a conservation area famous for its concentrations of hippo, buffalo and elephant as well as being home to major predators, lion and leopard.

Cool off in the lodge's swimming pool while watching African wildlife graze or drink at the lagoon below you or head off on an exciting morning, afternoon or night game drive or even a guided walking safari. And after all the excitement, spend some quiet time rejuvenating at the bush spa while drinking in the beautiful views of the river.


  • Set over a lagoon in a game-rich valley
  • Viewing decks & pool overlook the river
  • Thrilling safaris either by foot or with a game-drive vehicle
  • Bush spa with private views over the river


  • Game drives
  • Guided walking safaris
  • Guided walks
Hippos wallow in the pool by the spa and don't be surprised if you see an elephant wandering through the communal areas! Fantastic experience.

Director's House

The Director's House is ideal for families, small groups or the traveller who wants a bit more space and privacy. This 2-bedroom, exclusive-use villa is elegant, modern and tastefully decorated - making it the perfect place to unwind and relax after a day of exploring South Luangwa.

Spend your days lounging poolside as the a tasty meal cooks on the BBQ, and spend your nights around the warm flames in the fire pit as your pizza bakes in the pizza oven.

Standard Chalet

Scattered along the banks of the lagoon are Mfuwe's 18 private chalets. The 13 Standard Chalets offer open-plan living, an en suite bathroom, mini bar and private game-viewing deck overlooking the lagoon. The bathing corner, which opens up to give guests an open-air bathing experience, is a special feature of each chalet.

The three Family Chalets and two Suite Chalets boast an elevated sleeping area, double beds, a private bar and increased lounge space in addition to the features that are standard to all chalets.

My husband and I cannot thank you enough for setting up our wonderful vacation to Mfuwe lodge. We can not say enough about our tremendous experience.
