No doubt, a top quality safari lodge located inside the park close to the gate. Had a vehicle waiting for us at the airport and drove us to the park. Amazing service, highly accommodating staff, extremely knowledgeable guides. We spent two nights here before heading to the Chindeni Bushcamp, also operated with by the Bushcamp Company. South Luangwa is top... More

This lodge is a real gem and is run extremely well. The rooms are separate one from the next and very secure, clean and comfortable. The view we had was of a little lagoon that was crammed with hippos and birds and an occasional crocodile. The sights and sounds were fabulous and exciting. The rooms were spacious and each had...

This was my first safari in the wild and I was not sure what to expect. The first day I have to say I was overwhelmed by the bugs, animals and the little green frogs all over in the bathroom. But all that eased in a day and the lodge quickly grew on me. The safari trips were fantastic and... More

2 nights at Mfuwe Lodge lived up to its reputation as a friendly, professional and beautiful place. The care spent in the planning of each day, from the early morning breakfast to the sundowners on the evening safari, was exceptional. We had 4 safari trips and were so fortunate with our experienced guide Peter, to see 9 lions, a leopard,... More

As a Lusaka resident, we have been on many safaris in Zambia and elsewhere (including Kenya and Botswana). Our recent safari experience at Mfuwe I think takes the cake! First, the location inside the park is amazing and we saw lions on 3 our of 4 drives, leopards, hyenas, wild dogs, plus the usual (elephants, giraffes, hippo, crocs, zebras, etc.)... More

I stayed at Mfuwe Lodge before and after my stay at Chamilandu (one of the Bushcamps within the same company), and had an amazing stay! From the welcome I received at reception (and the staff actually do remember your previous stay!) to the personal service throughout my stay, Mfuwe Lodge is as much about its people than the animals we...

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.
