MFUWE LODGE - SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK, ZAMBIA
Overlooking a beautiful oxbow lagoon in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, Mfuwe Lodge provides its guests with a special glimpse of Africa as it once was - untouched, unspoiled and unforgettable.

The open-plan design of Mfuwe's new structures keeps the comfort and relaxation of guests in mind, but also capitalises on an African wilderness experience that is a blend of colours and textures, sounds, aromas and sights unmatched anywhere else in the world.

Exciting wilderness adventures in an area that boasts one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in the world are matched by the enchantment of the lodge setting.

Mfuwe Lodge is 3km from the main gate of the South Luangwa National Park and just a 45 minute transfer from Mfuwe International Airport.

Accommodation is provided in 18 open-plan chalets, each with en-suite bathroom.

One third of each chalet's perimeter can be opened, to allow the guest to enjoy the views, the sounds, the scents and the mood of the African wilderness.

Each chalet has a large private deck overlooking one of the lagoons. The bathrooms have both bath and shower, with separate toilet. The bathing corner can be completely opened to offer guests an open-air bathing experience.

Five Chalets are suites with an elevated sleeping area, to allow space for a double bed, and increased lounging area.

Each room has a private bar. The thatched roof has been designed to guarantee maximum ventilation, even though all rooms on the lagoon are dramatically sheltered by huge ebony trees.

The open-plan design of Mfuwe's new structures keeps the comfort and relaxation of guests in mind, but also capitalises on the fact that an African wilderness experience is a blend of colours and textures, sounds, aromas and sights unmatched anywhere else in the world.

The open plan central lodge facility incorporates reception, lounge, dining and bar areas, under a thatch roof supported by palm poles and dominated by two impressive chimneys at opposite ends. This cool and airy central meeting place is the heart of the lodge. It opens onto a broad timber deck that cantilevers dramatically over the main lagoon. From the comfort of the Lodge guests may view some of Africa's majestic wildlife as animals come down to drink. Elephant, hippopotamus, many antelope species and crocodiles are plentiful in this area.

The deck area in front of the lounge accommodates the swimming pool which also overlooks the main lagoon. In between game drives, walks and meals, guests may relax around the pool or in the unique library which is entirely dedicated to nature conservation related issues, African culture, tradition and history. The library also include a video library and has its own timber deck which overlooks the main lagoon. Here people can read or write in peace and soak up the tranquillity of Africa at its best.

The lodge also has an open boma for dinners under starlit African skies and earnest talk around the campfire. Activities from the lodge include day and night game drives; lion and leopard are often seen. The lodge offers walking safaris for closer contact with the game and exceptional bird watching.

To maintain the lodge's tranquil setting, none of the rooms have telephones or radios; however, the camp does maintain contact with the outside world via email, telephone and fax services which are available upon request.

Dining & Facilities
Meals are served in a variety of settings that are only limited by the imagination. Guests commonly enjoy brunch in the bush following an early morning game drive or a delicious dinner eaten by candlelight under the African stars while listening to the lions calling in the distance.

Activities
Day and night time safaris with an experienced and knowledgeable guide are provided daily, while those who are more adventurous at heart can take advantage of the walking safari option to view animals on foot with an armed scout as your guide.

Wildlife
Mfuwe Lodge is one of the few camps in the South Luangwa National Park which stays open during the "Green Season." During this time the landscape in the valley changes into a lush green paradise that affords guests an opportunity to witness many of the antelope species giving birth and attracts the elusive Wild Dog as well as many species of migrating African and European birds.

For guests who wish to study the unique Zambian wildlife and plants they may see while on safari at Mfuwe, the camp offers a reference library containing more than 300 wildlife books and videos.
