Great game-viewing on South Luangwa National Park's doorstep

Mfuwe Lodge lies on the banks of two oxbow lagoons just outside the wildlife haven of the South Luangwa National Park in north-eastern Zambia, on an old elephant trail where it would not be surprising to see these gentle giants strolling through at least twice-daily in November. 

South Luangwa National park is said to be one of the best places in Africa for a walking safaris, unsurprising considering its impressive game population and keen interest in wildlife preservation. Nearby Mfuwe Lodge offers excellent walking tours through the bushveld, with morning and afternoon/evening guided game drives also available daily. 

There is an open-plan central lodge and 18 chalets dotted along the lagoon banks. The central lodge has an expansive lounge, dining, deck and bar area where guests congregate to sip an ice-cold drink, spot wildlife at the lagoon below, or cool off in the crystal clear swimming pool. The Chalets enjoy views over the lagoons from secluded covered verandahs while the well-appointed bathrooms can open to the outdoors and all Mfuwe’s splendours. Five of the chalets provide more space with an elevated sleeping area and larger lounge.


  • Five minutes from the gate to the South Luangwa National Park means easy access to this game rich reserve
  • Walking safaris can be arranged with the lodge if requested
  • Position on the banks of two oxbow lagoons allows for plenty of game viewing 
  • Particularly unique elephant activity during the month of November
  • Chalets are beautifully appointed and allow for indoor or outdoor bathrooms
