A special thanks to Andy and Amy for our wonderful stay at your lodge. We had eight kids with us and at no time did we feel they would be told to keep quiet. The hippos can be noisy outside the lagoon units and a pleasure to view during the day. The environment and game viewing was brilliant. Mfuwe is... More

We stayed at Mfuwe lodge for 3 nights and it was absolutely brilliant! Incredible location (we could watch the animals graze from our balcony), brilliant rooms, wonderful and friendly service, delicious food and to too it all off a great guide whose knowledge for the wildlife was staggering! We can't recommend this place enough! We would also recommend asking to... More

This was our 4th trip to Africa but our first to Zambia. After spending 10 nights in the bush, we ended our trip with one night at Mfuwe. In spite of its relatively large size, they are surprisingly able to maintain that intimate bush camp feel probably because the staff goes out of its way to make everyone feel welcome... More

We stayed at the main lodge this year on our way back out to the Bushcamps, this was our second visit and so we decided to go to the ones we missed last time. Although we only spent one night in Mfuwe, we were made completely welcome and looked after tremendously by everyone. With the relatively easy access to the... More

I have had safaris in many other locations in many different countries, but never in Zambia. I was really looking forward to this experience and unfortunately my stay was a slight disappointment. I was to stay at Mfuwe Lodge for one day before heading down to the Chamilandu bush camp for 2 days. I had just finished a volunteer project... More

I can’t say enough good things about our trip to Mfuwe Lodge in March 2014. When we originally began planning our vacation, we wanted to stay at the Bushcamps. When we started the planning process, Ashleigh let us know the Bushcamps were not open on our travel dates (they opened just a few weeks after due to the wet season),... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid July this year. It was an exquisite experience from start to finish. Mfuwe lodge is a well oiled colonial machine with awesome wildlife both in and around the lodge and out on the drives. Almost Disney like in its perfection! All staff were incredibly helpful and couldn't do enough to make our... More

Our 4 night stay at Mfuwe lodge was the best African Safari we have had in our 30 years in Africa. We couldn't have asked for more. The hospitality, accomodation and food was excellent .......on top of this the game viewing was exceptional! We saw all the game we wanted to see and more . Our game guide, Peter, was... More

Spent 4 days at various bush camps, starting from the Mfuwe lodge. Amazing experience - saw Giraffes, Lions, Panthers, Warthogs, Hyenas, and many more birds/animals. The remote location of the bushcamps gives a unique experience; we only crossed paths with other parties twice in 4 days. If you're an active type, I recommend finding something active before/after your time there.... More

We loved Mfuwe Lodge and had a first-class guide in Manda. Our room was spectacular and the staff welcoming and very accommodating to any need. Our trip, in May, was at a relatively low season so the lodge was not very busy. We loved that! Our first trip to Africa, and we were told this part of the season is... More
