Set within the banks of two lagoons, Mfuwe Lodge's comfortable charm and calm surroundings make it a lovely stopover point before going onto the more remote camps in southern South Luangwa.

The lodge is set in the park 5 min away from the main gate. Each chalet is kitted out with modern furniture standing on polished stone floors offering views of the lagoon and game viewing.

The game viewing in the area is impressive. Giraffes, hippos, antelope & crocodile are seen regularly from Mfuwe's lagoon and in November local elephants have been seen wandering through the lobby tempted by the nearby mango tree- that would be an exciting start!

The camp is located in the remote southern end of South Luangwa. Each large, elegant chalet is set beneath shady, mahogany trees that help to keep the rooms cool during the hottest months. Each chalet is constructed of reed and cane under a tall thatched roof, and raised up on a wooden platform. Inside they are light, bright and airy yet still retaining a bushcamp feel.
