Overview of Mvuu Lodge

Mvuu Wilderness Lodge is situated on the banks of the Shire River in Malawi’s Liwonde National Park – a diverse conservation area of wetlands, open savannah, woodlands and hill country, and offering great game viewing in Malawi. Boat safaris, nature walks and guided morning, afternoon game drives enable you to see a wide range of water and land animals including elephant, hippo, crocodile, and many species of antelope.

This is also a great destination for bird watchers as the birdlife is prolific, especially along the Shire River where regional rarities such as palmnut vulture, African skimmer, Pel’s fishing-owl, Bohm’s bee-eater, Lilian’s lovebird, bat hawk and Livingstone’s flycatcher are frequently sighted. You can also take a bicycle trip to local villages to meet some of the friendly people Malawi is so famous for – a fascinating cultural experience.
