Mfuwe Lodge
The Lodges are so comfortable,and with excellent views from one's balcony of any game that maybe wandering along the stream.One can ever shower,with a fabulous view. We also appreciated,being accompanied to our lodge of an evening.Well done.!
Secondly,To the Chef and catering staff,it is probably one of the "Only" lodgings,that actually endeavour to keep to whatever diet,your Guest has asked for. This in itself,deserves 5 Star Rating,especially as it's done so discreetly,that really only the guest,receiving "Their" food,really knows about it.!!
Thirdly,we,could not have had a Guide,more informed,than Willie,as he is an absolute "Gem" and his knowledge of the bush,Trees,Game and Birds is phenomenal. Also he is such a careful driver,which makes a huge difference to those in the vehicle,you may have "hip replacements,knees etc" Please congratulate him for us.
Also,our visit to the Spa was so pleasant,as we don't always have an opportunit

A truly wonderful experience. The beauty of Luangwa, the knowledge and hospitality of Babette and Phil all came together to make this the safari of a lifetime

Mfuwe Lodge
We just loved Mfuwe Lodge in South Luangwa. We found South Luangwa transformed in a lush green and watery paradise with lots of animal sightings, including leopard every day as well as wild dogs! The lodge has a perfect setting in between the lagoons and an adorable swimming pool, with build-in seats, to watch the animals down below in the lagoon with a cocktail in your hand. Life can't get better than this!
