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.

Mvuu Wilderness Lodge offers luxury accommodation for a maximum of 16 people in eight beautifully constructed, spacious tents overlooking a palm-fringed lagoon.

The luxurious tented suites are tucked into the trees and each has a private wooden deck winding around the tent and overlooking the lagoon to ensure prime and discreet wildlife viewing. The wonderfully spacious en suite bathrooms have double basins, stone bathtubs plus indoor and outdoor showers.

Other Room Types

The lodge also offers a unique canvas, stone and thatch Honeymoon Suite for romantics on safari.


The thatched lounge, library, dining room and bar are tucked into the fever tree forest on the banks of the Shire River and raised on stilts to enhance the view of the river and the passing wildlife.

Watch passing wildlife from the lodge’s photographic hide next to the river or laze around the swimming pool, made from natural rock. As the sun sinks, you can enjoy a drink from the bar and relax in the raised lounge area overlooking the scenic river for a spectacular sunset.


You can enjoy your meals at Mvuu Lodge under thatch in the main dining room or on the deck surrounded by the sights and sounds of Africa or around an open pit fire.
