Guest Comments

Mfuwe Lodge
"This is our first safari experience, but I'm sure to say it is the best ever! Thanks for your hospitality. We had a great time!"
- Chongwei and Jhenlin Wang, Hong Kong

"It's pretty tough to pick between the camps and staff - but at a push we'd have to go with Chindeni. It was a real highlight of our trip - the gameviewing un-matched and the camp incredibly relaxing and in the most idyllic spot. Thanks everyone @ BCC."
- Ed & Sophie Green, UK

Mfuwe Lodge
It was a fantastic trip... everything went as well as or better than expected! We really enjoyed the variety of places and had many highlights with wild life viewing. Met a lot of wonderful people along the way!

Mfuwe - on arrival, we wondered if we should have just gone on to Chamilandu instead of spending one night at Mfuwe, but after staying there, we were glad that we'd opted for the one night there. The wildlife viewing there was the best of the whole trip, and we did both an afternoon and morning safari drive... they put on a lovely bush brunch on the day that we left. The cabin was comfortable and staff were great... seeing an elephant walk through the lobby was a highlight.
- Susan & Richard Stasiak
