Mfuwe is by far one of the most beautiful safari lodges I have ever been to. The management and staff are accommodating and they ensure that all guests are well cared for. The treatment is very personalized and they prepare a program for you and entertain you along the way. The chalets are perfectly splendid and uber comfortable. The whole... More

My wife and I spent two glorious weeks between The Bushcamp Company's spectacular Mfuwe Lodge and two of its bush camps in July, 2013. I know, the review says December, but I am just late in writing/posting. Everyone that works there is top notch, from management right down to the all important safari drivers. We had several of those during... More

Having visited numerous safari destinations, I am without doubt that Zambia is the number one destination. And in Zambia, the South Luangwa National Park reigns supreme. Mfuwe Lodge is exceptional. The staff, the lodge itself (nothing prepares you for the elephant visit), the knowledge of the rangers/ tour guides, the bush spa - all of this and more make Mfuwe... More

Mfuwe was the last stop of a multi-country safari trip with Country Walkers in September and it was one of the highlights. Our room was right off the hippo lagoon with a back porch swing that was a perfect place to lounge in the heat of the day. The food was excellent and the guides were not only extremely knowledgeable,... More

The general manager is a miserable guy. Mean, not friendly, doesn't inspire his staff, or run the place well. Lots of things don't ever get done or tended to, and cleaning staff frequently just sit around. The office staff is great, and the location with the elephants is fabulous! I'd say go, but just know what you are getting in... More

Thanks for your comments. We always like to hear what people think of us, whether good or bad as this helps us to improve our service and standards. We are sorry if you found the general manager to be mean and miserable...maybe you just caught him on a bad day, but we can assure you that this is far removed... More

This was a most wonderful trip. Zambia was never on my bucket list but now a trip back to The Bushcamp Company certainly is! Our rooms, which were wonderful, overlooked the waterhole where there were hippos snorting, lions & crocs tussling over a recent kill of a buffalo. There was never a dull moment as we sat watching from our... More

This is our fourth trip to Mfuwe Lodge over the past ten years or so. We live in Oxford but my parents are based in Lusaka so once the grandchildren were safely deposited my wife and I were able to spend 3 blissful days at the Lodge. It was wonderful. The accommodation has been revamped in recent years and is... More

What can one say, food excellent, ambiance fantastic, guides knowledgeable, Lodge staff friendly and helpful and the rooms are great, nothing better than waking up to an elephant munching on a bush right outside your balcony. We had kids in our group who were made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. All in all was a really... More

We have just come back from 4 days at Mfuwe, the chalets were superb and well maintained. The food for all meals, and there were lots, was excellent. The staff from Management, office, bar, restaurant, guides etc were so helpful, cheerful and welcoming. As far as game viewing is concerned we, I am sure, managed to see everything South Luangwa...

We stayed at Mfuwe from the recommendation of our friends. The rooms were clean with the mosquito nets ( impressed as you do not get these at all other Zambian holiday accommodation). October was a good time as the animals congregate at the watering hole and we saw all the big fours. Leopards were seen by us - twice each... More
