Wonderful staff, superb food, amazing location, lots of game. Andy and his team really do go above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome. A welcome team with cold towels and iced drinks greet you on return from each drive. Great for a family safari.

I am a regular visitor to Mfuwe Lodge, and have visited in many months of the year. Every time is different but fabulous in its own way. The thing that keeps me coming back is the fabulous wildlife and the fabulous staff at the lodge (and bushcamps). This time we had a pride of lions and 4 cubs close to... More

We were lucky enough to spend 5 nights in Mfuwe Lodge last week and it was an incredible experience. The location and accommodation were amazing and the variety of wildlife we encountered during our stay was second to none. All the staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful and had a real enthusiasm for the nature around them. The food... More

I came to Zambia for the first time with my wife (she's Zambian) she took me to Sth Luangwa, Mfuwe Lodge. I loved this place, we were lucky enough to have Ornacious (excuse the spelling) as our guide, he was great, on the morning/night safaris. We were so lucky, day 1 lions walked past our car, saw elephants crossing the... More

Everything was beyond compare. Accommodations were wonderful, and the staff was warm and genuine. The guides were the best tour guides of any kind I've ever had. Their excitement about the nature around them was contagious. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing.

For our 10th anniversary, we decided to make magical memories by taking a trip of lifetime. In five words, "beyond my already high expectations." From the moment you arrive you know this is something special... the Bushcamp staff more than greet you at the airport, they truly welcome you. The drive through town shows the "heart" of Africa - the... More

I was fortunate enough to be part of a trip organized by CoolHunting.com with 28 strangers (and one of my closest friends) and I spent 10 incredible days in Zambia. Andy and his team at The Bushcamp Co not only run a world class hospitality business, but it's so much more than that. The lodge is beautifully kept and set... More

A special thanks to Andy and Amy for our wonderful stay at your lodge. We had eight kids with us and at no time did we feel they would be told to keep quiet. The hippos can be noisy outside the lagoon units and a pleasure to view during the day. The environment and game viewing was brilliant. Mfuwe is... More

Incredible location (we could watch the animals graze from our balcony), brilliant rooms, wonderful and friendly service, delicious food and to too it all off a great guide whose knowledge for the wildlife was staggering! We can't recommend this place enough! We would also recommend asking to... More
