wonderful experience, definitely worth going to several bushcamps as they are all different. Very comfortable, good beds,modern bathrooms etc. Food is good and you are very well looked after. The animals are incredible, you get to see so much, take a good camera (but not necessarily bulky! compact is better). The walks in the bush are fantastic. Expensive but worth... More

Mfuwe Lodge offers the perfect combination -- terrific game viewing (including from your own chalet deck) and high-quality, friendly service. Chalets are clean and comfortable, with decks that overlook the oxbow lagoon the lodge sits on. Food is delicious; lots of variety, right down to the snacks that accompany sundowners on afternoon drives. The guides are from the area and... More

The lodge is located inside the Luangwa National Park, an enormous 9,500 square kilometres of forest and grassland reserve. It offers excellent accommodation, tastefully decorated. The nice hot shower and the comfortable beds are most wonderful after a day with two game drives. The food was excellent and the staff most welcoming. We enjoyed every meeting of our stay there,...

We stayed at Mfuwe Lodge during what they call the "rainy season" - usually a quieter time of year. Well, there may have been less guests around (hurrah!) but there was certainly no shortage of animals to be seen (double hurrah!). My husband had just bought a new camera and it was perfect weather for clean, crisp photography. The birds... More

This was our fifth trip to Africa for safari so we have a good base of comparison (kenya/tanz, zimbabwe, south africa and Botswana). We came to South Luangwa in particular to stay at the bush camps owned by the Bushcamp company and do some walking mixed with game drives. We decided to spend 2 nights at Mfuwe lodge because of...

In the heart of the Luangwa National Park is Mufwe Lodge. It sits on the Luangwa River and most of the guest rooms are on the river edge with a in room porch over looking the river. When we visited all of our meals were specially prepared for us according to our dietary needs. The meals were simple but filling... More

My recent two-night stay at this lodge was just plain fantastic. I arrived at night so I wasn’t really able to appreciate my surroundings until the next morning. Oh what I was missing! This lodge is just the right amount of elegance and luxury you would expect for its price, set within the beautiful natural backdrop of the South Luangwa... More

It was wonderful to return for the third time to Mfuwe Lodge in South Luangwa National Park. This time to spend Christmas and New Year with our 'family' at Mfuwe - Amy, James, Andy, Ian, Lisa, Shelley, and all the Choir and other staff. We stayed in our 'home' Civet Lodge and enjoyed a very special Christmas and New Year.... More
