Mfuwe Lodge
I am writing on behalf of my Daughter, Son-in-law, Granddaughter and of course myself! to thank you for the wonderful three days we spent at your Lodge last week. The service, accommodation and food were first class. My husband and I have travelled to many countries over the years and stayed in a variety of hotels and Lodges and I would rank yours number one! I would be grateful if you could thank all your staff for looking after our family so well. Please particularly thank William for taking us on all those wonderful drives. We saw such a variety of game and he was so knowledgeable about the birds , animals and trees. We certainly learnt so much from him. Thank you once again and I hope it won’t be too long before we visit Mfuwe Lodge again.
