Despite being just inside the parks main gate, game viewing at Mfuwe Lodge is second to none with giraffe, lions, antelopes and crocodiles regularly visiting the Lodge’s lagoon.

18 thatched bungalows built from local stone and timber are scattered along the banks of two picturesque lagoons and blend unobtrusively into the surrounding landscape. The interiors were fully renovated in 2010 with beautiful African fabrics and furniture and each bungalow has a private veranda from where you can watch wallowing hippos and thirsty game stopping by for a drink.

The impressive open-plan main lodge houses a comfortable lounge area, bar and dining room and outside the traditional boma and the swimming pool both look out over the lagoon.

This is a great place to base yourself at the beginning of your safari before heading into a more remote bushcamp. The game is prolific and drives are led by experienced guides who can take you on walking safaris at your request.

Why We Love It

In November elephants regularly walk straight through the Lodge's lobby, lured by the smell of the tasty mango tree nearby
