Camp Openings: Mfuwe Lodge is open year-round | The Bushcamps open from April/May

Mfuwe Lodge

Mfuwe Lodge is an award-winning safari lodge set in the most prolific game area of the South Luangwa. The perfect place to enjoy excellent game viewing, recharge your batteries, or to start and finish your journey to the sister Bushcamps within South Luangwa National Park.

Set inside the park, just five minutes drive from the main gate, the lodge’s allure is instantly obvious. Beneath a canopy of ebony and mahogany, its eighteen air-conditioned chalets are arranged around the banks of two lagoons. The open plan reception, lounge, dining, and bar areas have a warm, welcoming atmosphere and is furnished in a contemporary African style, complementing its natural surroundings. An endless stream of wildlife will keep you enthralled as you lounge or dine on the open deck or take a dip in the swimming pool.

Mfuwe Lodge also offers you the chance to relax at its Bush-Spa offering a lovely refuge to wind down and relax during some quiet time at the Lodge.

The Bushcamps

Along with the iconic Mfuwe Lodge, a stunning selection of luxury rustic, yet comfortable bushcamps are available to embed you deeper within South Luangwa for a truly authentic safari experience.

Each of the six bushcamps is set in glorious surroundings and can accommodate a maximum of just eight guests, ensuring that your stay is a peaceful one and tailored to your personal needs. Together with the warmest of hospitality, sumptuous meals and first-class guides, these bushcamps are the perfect gateway for individuals and small groups wishing to explore the spectacular wildlife of the South Luangwa.

In the South Luangwa, the walking safari is king. This is what the camps are famous for, so it is only fitting that most of your outings will be on foot with the very finest guides. Game drives are also on offer, particularly at night when a whole new cast of characters fills the landscape.

Bushcamp rates range from $470-800 per person, per night.

The bushcamps promise:

  • An intimate and exclusive atmosphere, with no more than 8 guests
  • Expert, professional safari guides
  • Stylish, beautifully-appointed chalets
  • Exceptional hospitality
  • Remote settings, free from other vehicles
  • Access to one of the top walking areas in Africa
  • Abundant game


his region of the park is renowned for its prolific game – giraffe, hippos, buffalo, antelope, and crocodile are constant visitors to Mfuwe Lodge’s lagoon, whilst in November the local elephants regularly wander right through the lobby, lured by a nearby wild mango tree. Whether you stay overnight, or just have lunch en route to a Bushcamp, Mfuwe Lodge’s relaxed charm and enviable surroundings make it the perfect stopover.

The game-viewing potential at Mfuwe Lodge and the surrounding area is second-to-none. Walking safaris can be arranged on request, but the majority of outings are game drives, allowing guests to explore as much of this prolific region of the Luangwa Valley as possible. Drives are led by our experienced team of guides, setting out at first light, and then again in the late afternoon when the wildlife is at its most active. After sundowners, spotlights are used to pick out a new cast of nocturnal creatures.
