Why we recommend Mfuwe Lodge

“You’ll be amazed at the ‘deep in the bush’ feeling of Mfuwe Lodge. Located just inside South Luangwa National Park, the award-winning property is famous for the local elephants that wander through the lobby in search of fruits from the wild mango tree nearby. The park itself is renowned for prolific game viewing, and in the dry season is famed for the concentrations of hippos, buffalo, elephants and leopards, just to name a few.”
