Certificate of Excellence
Mvuu Lodge overlooks a secret, tranquil lagoon just off the Shire River, with the main lounge, dining and bar area set high above the water. Its extensive wildlife library and telescope make the most of the exceptional bird and other life that moves around the river, and the pool is perfect for cooling off at siesta time. Highlights In this lush area, the Shire and its floodplains draw an excellent diversity of animals to feed and drink, including a dense population of hippo, crocodiles and large numbers of elephant as well as sable, Lichtenstein's hartebeest, yellow baboon and waterbuck. Non-stop birding is guaranteed here. The Rhino Tracking Experience is a unique opportunity to join the rhino Protection Team scouts and your guide in tracking rare black rhino on foot; learn about their conservation - and end with a delicious bush breakfast or dinner. No visit is complete without meeting the friendly people of the nearby villages.

The experience is unique and totally customized for preferences. There are 3 types of safari encounters available - walking, driving via Land Rover, and boating along the Shire river. Lions had just been introduced in July/Aug and we surprised how close we got to them.

"We have stayed in tent seven four times by request."
"the honeymoon suite was fab with indoor / outdoor bath and swinging chairs"
"Go for room 1 through 5, they offer the best view and are only a short walk from the lounge, restaurant and pool area."
"All rooms have perfect views, but if you do not like walking a lot ask for a room closer to the dining area."
"Only 6 rooms, all good"
