Rooms are modern open and large. Facilities are all modern. Animals everywhere including a giraffe right outside my door. Great safari guides and I really enjoyed the sunset. Service was very friendly especially from Amy. Would highly recommend

We visited during the dry season and still had an amazing trip. The lodge and rooms are stunning and are among the nicest you will find in Zambia. We saw a tremendous assortment of wildlife on our twice daily game drives (including lions both male and female, bush pig, leopards, elephants, etc). The guides are spot on in their knowledge...

Stayed here with my 11 year old son and 10 High School girls. The guides were excellent and more than tolerant of our range of interest levels, the accommodationa were comfortable and luxurious and there wasn't a random need that wasn't met with complete hospitality.

Mfuwe lodge is a wonderful family lodge located inside the Luangwa National game park. The accommodation is fantastic. I have been to this lodge numerous times. It has the best spa in Zambia run by Natalie. There's nothing better than having a massage in the bush with the sound of the hippos. The game viewing is spectacular and the guides... More

I feel this was my relaxing time. From the first I was told all the times...time to wake up, to eat, to go on drives and YEAH!!! when to freshen up!!! When eating, we were dining with our driving guides, ... not that I mind... but this is MY holiday! I do NOT want to be entertained for 4 hours... More

We are sorry to hear that you felt as if you were continually being told what to do and that the style of some of our safari experiences was not what you were expecting. It is very much the norm in safari lodges for guests to go on activities with other guests and have meals at set times. Game-viewing activities... More

Have visited a number to times in past. Family trip for 4 days. Could not be faulted. Beautiful setting, with lovely engaging staff. Food and accomodation were top notch. The Game drives and guides were excellent and were interested in trying to show you what you wanted rather than just going on a drive for the sake of it. Would... More

I came to Zambia to work in a hospital in Lusaka for a month in March (the rainy season), and when I got here I asked the locals for "the best" safari experience for a long weekend getaway with a friend. Everyone recommended South Luwanga, and Mfuwe Lodge in particular. When I arrived I was swept away by the experience.... More

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

Well what can I say, the national park was fantastic we really seen everything and I mean everything. Leopards lions giraffe elephant wild dog hippo, Leopards eating Impala, birds eating frogs, elaphants having a mud bath giraffe kneeling down to drink and much more but more importantly the staff at the lodge where even better. They didn't feel like staff... More
