When the Luangwa is in flood the hairpin bends along its tortuous route are progressively eroded away until the main stream cuts through one of its loops, leaving behind attractive oxbow lagoons which are one of the most picturesque aspects of the valley. Hidden away among the huge ebony and fig trees on the banks of one of these beautiful lagoons sits Mfuwe Lodge.Here exciting wilderness adventures are matched by the enchantment of the lodge, the warm welcome from the staff and the courtesy and efficiency of service.
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.
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.

Meals are served in a variety of settings that are only limited by the imagination. Previous visitors have enjoyed brunch in the bush following an early morning game drive or a delicious dinner eaten by candlelight under the African stars while listening to lions in the distance.
