Mfuwe Lodge
Been back nearly 2 weeks and only just found time to tell you about our amazing trip.
OVERALL... a great, most enjoyable & successful trip. Arrangements all immaculate with excellent rooms/ guides allocated. Thank you!
HIGHLIGHTS... 29 leopards in about 22 sightings including family with kill, 2 very close encounters which had adrenalin going and 1 who ran hard at us and we thought he may jump in! Some excellent photos and some of the most memorable encounters with leopards, lions and elephants we have experienced in 20 years+ of safaris.
MFUWE LODGE... transfer point as you know but deserves big mention for fabulous & smooth hosting and transfers! They gave us an impromptu bush breakfast before we transferred to Kuyenda and we saw an amazing and very grizzly leopard V many baboons right nearby.
KUYENDA... Excellent! Best camp, best guide/ armed ranger ( Kelvin & Isaiah), best food and outstanding hosting from Babette & Phil. Attention to detail and simple bush style mem
