My husband and I love Africa and had been on safari 11 years ago before we had kids. This was our first time back to Africa with our kids ages 9 and almost 5. Having seen East Africa and Botswana/S. Africa before, we were keen to experience the Vic Falls and also needed to pick a safari destination/lodge that would... More

Mfuwe lodge is one of the very best safari lodges we have stayed in (out of 20 in 5 countries). Spacious, well equipped chalets with views from the terrace over the lagoon and elephants' bathing pool. Excellent food. Very relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Very successful game drives (we saw leopards on 4 out of 5) with very few other vehicles around... More

We stayed for 3 days. The guides were simply superb. Peter and Alec were our guides and they were simply amazing in their ability to look for animals. They would scout out the vultures and use that to zero in on the location of lions. One day, we managed to see 2 prides of lions. That was clearly the highlight... More

Staff very attentive, friendly and welcoming. Every detail of our trip was organised perfectly from pick up to departure. Nothing was a hassle and we even had our last game drive an... More

We just returned from our 4 day stay at Mfuwe Lodge and were absolutely blown away by our experience there. The lodge itself is amazing. We stayed in the Zebra room which is a two level room and perfect for a small family. It is tucked away towards the end of the lodge and because of the wooden ramp up... More

We have been to Mfuwe Lodge a number of times, and keep going back! From the comfortable chalets to the spacious lodge and deck overlooking a waterhole, everything is fantastic! On our first stay we were amazed by the friendly, helpful staff and they haven't changed since. Nothing is too much trouble. Mfuwe Lodge gives you the best service, fantastic... More

We spent one night in Mfuwe Lodge (plus 2 nights in the Bushcamp Chamilundu which I also highly recommend). Living in Zambia, we've been to many parks in and out of country, but our experience in South Luangwa was just fantastic ! Customer service is perfect, the all crew is welcoming, friendly and cheerful. Food was delicious and abundant, lunch-tea... More

A friend recommended I vist Mfuwe Lodge to wrap up my visit to Zambia. I'm so happy I followed her advice. Other reviewers have used words such as; 'life changing', 'magical', and 'amazing'; all with good reason. Mfuwe Lodge was the perfect way to finish my month volunteering in Zambia. I can honestly say the location, the service, the food,... More

Staying at Mfuwe lodge was a life changing experience. The park is full of animals - we saw lions, leopards, hyenas, elephants, hippos, crocodiles, buffalos, giraffes and many many more. The lodge was incredibly comfortable and the room had a terrace looking into the park (the lagoon was dry but there was still plenty to see). Our guide William was... More
