If you are looking for a Safari experience in Malawi, then look no further than Mvuu Wilderness Lodge. Mvuu is now part of the Wilderness Safaris group, so quality is assured. This luxury tented camp is located in the Liwonde National Park, without a doubt Malawi's premier wildlife reserve, home to hippos, crocodiles, elephants, plains game, abundant birdlife and lesser mammals. The Shire River is the lifeblood of the park, as it meanders its way south and the lodge overlooks a lagoon with a waterhole that is regularly frequented by wildlife.
Accommodation comes in the form of eight safari tents, each with a private deck that faces out onto the waterhole. The tents are spacious and open-air with king-size double beds, mosquito nets and en-suite bathroom facilities. The main lodge is perched on rock, with stunning vistas overlooking the river. There is an elegant dining room and well-stocked bar, a comfortable living area and extensive wildlife library. Hang out in the hide as animals pass your way and cool down in the heat of the day in the natural rock swimming pool.
NB: Mvuu Camp is located just south of the lodge, with 9 walk-in tents and 5 en-suite brick chalets, as well as a basic campsite where you can pitch a tent. It is far less luxurious and exclusive, but we can book it if you wish.
Mvuu Wilderness Lodge is certainly your best bet for a Malawian Safari. The Liwonde National Park is a haven for wildlife, with elephants, leopard, sable antelope and waterbuck roaming the plains, hippos and crocodiles basking in the Shire River and abundant birdlife illuminating the deep blue sky. The lodge is located opposite a lagoon with a watering hole that provides great armchair game viewing by day or night. Relax on your private platform and breathe in the sights and sounds of the African bush. Enjoy world-class birding, morning and afternoon game drives, boat cruises on the Shire River or take a guided bush walk with your ranger. The lodge is ultra luxurious while maintaining a classic camping feel, so it offers the best of both worlds.
