We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Mvuu Camp. It was luxury chalet accommodation right on the Shire River with a deck to view crocodiles and hippos at a safe distance. The staff have customer service down to a science and since it is a maximum 40 person venue, you feel very welcomed and get lots of attention. The safari guides are very knowledgeable and we loved both the morning boat and evening drive. Walks are also arranged. The price is substantial but great value as it includes all meals, afternoon tea-etc. The food was buffet style and delicious with vegetarian options always a available. Fresh hot muffins or scones in the morning! I cannot say enough about the kind,polite and hard working staff. We booked with Wilderness Safaris in Blantyre with Saira who was very helpful.
