Mfuwe lodge is the luxury lodge in South Luangwa, Zambia. The place is beautiful, the rooms are luxury bush camp and the food was delicious. I could spend hours just looking at the birds in the dry water bed (I went in May 2016). The staff was great, the safaris and the guides were top notch- everything was spectacular. I...

Long, low bungalow type construction beautifully styled and positioned. Cool and opulent and relaxed. Plenty of areas to hang out, cogitate and enjoy a beer, a lazy swim or study the wildlife that frequent the hotel (inside and out!) especially in mango season. Our villa alongside the hippo/croc pool was well appointed and designed and the views kept us busy....

Every year is such a fantastic festive season at Mfuwe. Christmas carols in the bush, lots of other surprises, sundowners by the river. The guides are very knowledgeable and look after all your needs, even making sure they have the right drinks to take for sundowners. The food is out of this world. Just know you're going to put on...

We planned our trip in late November to maximize the chances of seeing wild elephants in the lodge, and we were not disappointed! When we arrived at the Lodge, we were greeted by staff and invited for a light snack before continuing on to Kapamba Bushcamp, which is where our adventure was supposed to begin. But, within 15 minutes of...

We spent a couple of hours at this lodge in transit to and from Bilimungwe Bushcamp. If one does not have the time nor courage to go to one of the "proper" bushcamps they operate, this is a great second best. Very friendly staff. Spectacular location, comfy communal areas and well appointed rooms.

I went on safari with Dazzle Africa, a non-profit that works in the Mfuwe area with conservation and education. The chalets at Mfuwe lodge are beautiful and very comfortable. The staff make you feel right at home and are very accommodating to dietary requests and other needs. The elephants walking through the reception area on their way to the mango...
