We have just spent 11 nights with the Bushcamp Company in South Luangwa National Park.The first 5 nights were at the Billimungwe Bushcamp and the next 6 at Mfuwe Lodge. In every respect our entire trip was excellent. We have done very many more expensive safaris to various Southern African safari/game viewing camps and at least ten trips to South... More

Mfuwe Lodge is elegant, beautifully run and an excellent place to begin a Safari vacation. Animal viewing in the immediate area is exceptional on game drives and wild animals occasionally walk through the lodge grounds. The food was abundant and delicious, served in the outdoor common areas overlooking a water hole frequented by elephants and other game. We were very... More

We received the warmest welcome and throughout our stay the Mfuwe staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. From helping us with car issues to entertaining our children everything was done with a smile. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and we saw many special sights such as a pair of honey badgers, a pair of porcupines and... More

I was only able to spend one night at Mfuwe Lodge but I loved it! The staff was amazing and extremely attentive (the barman from the night before remembered that I like lattes so brought me one as soon as I showed up for breakfast!). The rooms are beautiful and spacious. You can't beat the setting, being right in one... More

After going to Mfuwe Lodge and The Bushcamps almost yearly for 14 years, we still find excellent service, exceptional food and accomodations that lack nothing. And you will not find better, more qualified guides anywhere! Andy Hogg has an exceptional staff that never cease to amaze us! Thank you!

There are many choices for places to stay in and around the South Luangwa. But staying at the Mfuwe Lodge is by far the best. Service is fabulous. Animal sitings amazing. Rooms luxury and food as good as it gets. Great guides and amazing Bush Camps. I bring friends here every other year and have for over 14 years. And... More

I have just been back to this gorgeous lodge, taking my fiance with me for the first time. It was perfect! Our game drives were incredible (on our last night we had a leopard in the CAR PARK as we drove back in after seeing two other leopards!). Everyone who works there is just lovely. Food is to a very... More

I expected that like most places, we would be treated with common courtesy and have a benign reception but was surprised to see that we were greeted with enthusiasm and a smiling staff. After a long journey and days of filming,this was the warm welcome that I needed to lift my spirits. We arrived a dinner time and the food... More

Spent 3 nights at the lodge, and 3 nights at 2 camps which was great. All areas had different and luxurious accommodation. Food was tops at all places but the bush camps were more intimate with few people. Animal sightings were different at all places.Staff could not be more helpful or accommodating with us and our 2 kids ( 8... More

From the minute we saw the lodge we knew this was going to be an amazing Zambian experience and we definitely weren't wrong! The food was incredible, Jason was a great guide and the sunset drinks were definitely a favourite. The sounds of hippos as you fall asleep if truly unforgettable. We were especially lucky to have the elephants walk... More
