Overview of Mfuwe Lodge

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.

      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.

        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. Thank you for recommending the lodge, as it was so beautiful! The staff were amazing, the food was incredible and the game drives were just as incredible.
