Mfuwe Lodge

Set centrally inside the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, just five minutes’ drive from the main gate, is Mfuwe Lodge. Nestled beneath a canopy of ebony and mahogany trees, the lodge is arranged around the banks of two lagoons where an endless stream of wildlife keeps you enthralled. The open plan central lodge facility incorporates the reception, lounge, dining and bar areas all under a thatch roof and dominated by two impressive chimneys. There is a broad timber deck where the swimming pool is situated overlooking the main active lagoon. A library with private deck, Bush Spa and curio shop complete the picture.

    Chalet

    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.
