Unfortunately when we left home my husband had started a course of antibiotics for an infection and by the time we reached Mfuwe he was very unwell with a temperature, luckily we had a stop in Mwfue lodge and Amy soon summed up the situation and would not let us carry on to Kapamba that night. (another 3 hours away) she offered us a room at the lodge and a transfer the next day. Our friends carried on without us, Her forethought and kindness was a lifeline for my husband as he was close to collapsing. After a good night's sleep and more of the antibiotics he was improving and we were able to continue to Kapamba after brunch accompanied by Amy, I was so grateful to her for what she did for us, without the offer of the room at the lodge for the night I don't like to think what may have happened. Happily the antibiotics did their job and the rest of the holiday passed with no more frightening things happening. It is really a pleasure to meet someone nice,Amy went out of her way to help us

I wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time at Mfuwe Lodge.
The hospitality by all the staff was nothing but incredible right from the booking process, till the drop off at the airport with the packed lunch. It was a truly awesome experience.
We will be back for sure, and recommending to many friends and family.
Thank you too for your promptness in making the reservations.
Please pass our 'thank you' to everyone at the lodge...Amy, Ian, Gilbert, Tim and all the rest of the folks (my apologies but I couldn't remember all the names...not as sharp as your staff members in remembering all the guest names :-)).

Had a fabulous time. Great sightings, with a lot of animals and an excellent birding experience. Our guides were truly knowledgeable, experienced and very professional. The manager and his staff were all fantastic and made sure we enjoyed every part of our stay. Accommodation is exceptional! We will definitely be back.
