Mfuwe Lodge is an amazing place. The staff is incredible. I loved being welcomed back from each game drive with a moist cloth! All the staff we met was friendly and seemed to just anticipate our wants. They were nearby and attentive, but not intrusive. The food was very good. One time we made our own pizzas, another time we... More

I went to Mfuwe Lodge with 3 friends while we were working in Malawi on business. All I can say is that this place was an incredible experience. Mfuwe offers amazing lodgings, a bunch of class, and the best view around. We had four game drives in a two day trip and ended up seeing a pack of lions, three... More

They didn't feel like staff... More

Had a spectacular stay here a few years ago with a group of friends. There's nothing quite like seeing the wildlife of the South Luangwa in there natural habitat. This is the place to witness the ferocious and merciless beauty of Africa. Imagine a bull elephant gliding along in tandem with your safari vehicle, it's massive feet making less noise... More

Everything about Moue lodge is superb: the safaris and the guides, the wide range of wild life, the incredible friendliness and warmth of the staff, the excellently prepared meals and the outstanding service. We were there in the "rainy season, and it did rain once, but there was so much to see. It is myth that visiting the park in... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the lodge for a weekend , and everything was amazing. The staff are the friendliest and most helpful , and the whole lodge is absolutely beautiful. The food is delicious and plentiful. The cherry on the cake is of course the safari , which was the best I have experienced thus far in... More

We stayed at the Bushcamp lodges (including 2 nights at Mfuwe Lodge) in July for 9 days. We continue to have great memories of this very special trip. My advice is to venture out to the bush camps from Mfuwe - they are amazing! I don't know that I'll add much to the other Trip Advisor reviews - the accommodations... More

The lodge and accommodations where great. As were the staff and meals. We went to see the elephants. There was an elephant in the lobby when we arrived! We did several "Safari" drives through the park. Our guide Peter did an excellent job of finding all the animals we wanted to see. Lots of elephants, hippo, giraffe, water buffalo, lions,... More

The lodge, chalet, meals and drives through the park merit a 10 out of 10. All the staff were extremely helpful, knowledgable and made me feel welcome from the moment I stepped out of the taxi. Shaddrick and Moffat gave me a private evening drive where we spotted lions, leopards and porcupines and enjoyed a spectacular 'sun downer' while watching... More
