The award-winning Mfuwe Lodge is perfect for visitors who want to experience Zambia’s wildlife in a luxurious surrounding. Situated in Luangwa Valley, just five minutes away from the park’s main gates, the lodge is famous for its herds of hippo, elephant and buffalo as well as being home to all the big cats (i.e. predators). Walking safaris originated in this area and guests can participate in this with qualified guides.

Luangwa is a magical place. Set underneath ebony and mahogany trees, the lodge is built of thatch and endemic wood, melting into the bush surroundings. Outside, there’s an open deck and a swimming pool as well as a lagoon that’s always visited by wild animals. There’s also a curio shop for those who want to buy a few mementoes or drop by the spa for a relaxing massage.
