Mfuwe Lodge Elephants In Reception

Mfuwe Lodge

Set in the most prolific game area of the South Luangwa

18 Rooms


Overlooking the picturesque Mfuwe Lagoon

Each year when the mangoes in camp ripen, elephant matriarch - Wonky Tusk - leads her herd gently through reception!

Mfuwe Lodge is in the heart of the South Luangwa National Park, in the centre of the park's all-weather road network. The main lodge incorporates lounge, dinner and bar areas and the pool and deck overlooks the main lagoon.

Mfuwe has 18 beautiful timber-and-thatch chalets, many of which are split level. Each has double or twin beds, encased in a walk-in mosquito net and cooled by a fan. The polished wooden flooring (dotted with rugs) opens on to a broad veranda, perfect for relaxing after safari. The bathrooms have separate toilets, a sunken bath/shower with a view and dual wash-basins. Each chalet is beautifully designed, down to the individual fabrics and pottery used.

Walking safaris can be arranged upon request but most outings are game drives in 4x4 vehicles, with one of the many experiences guides. Morning and afternoon/night drives can be accommodated. This is a great place to start or end your adventure in the South Luangwa National Park.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
