Our experience with Mvuu was top notch. My father and I took my two children, ages 3 and 4, and they LOVED our three nights at Mvuu. The kids LOVED the playground (swings, slide, sandbox, etc). They also LOVED the resident warthogs. These friendly guys were so enjoyable to watch. We also took six safaris with other families with children. All the families were extremely friendly. Our guide, Duncan, was the best. He is extremely knowledgable and kid friendly. He answers questions like, "What do elephants eat?" and "Why are elephants grey?" He also engaged the kids in guessing names of animals and matching the tracks to the animals. He is very patient and easy-going. The perfect guide. The elephants on the river safaris were gorgeous and active.
In addition, we have very strict dietary needs. Mvuu cooked for us EVERY meal to perfection. Our waiter was extremely attentive. On Malawi Independence Day, Mvuu put on a special celebration full of music and traditional dance. We are so thankful we took place in that experience.
Thank you, Mvuu, for the trip of a lifetime!
