Mfuwe Lodge is The Bushcamp Company’s award-winning flagship camp and is located within five minutes of South Luangwa National Park’s main gate.
Refurbished in 2010, accommodations at the camp consist of eighteen thatched chalets scattered along the shady banks of two lagoons. There are two suites, three family rooms, three doubles, and ten twin rooms available. The suites have a king-sized bed downstairs with an en suite bathroom and a lounge with a small daybed and half-bathroom upstairs. The family rooms come with a king-sized bed upstairs and a lounge with a daybed and en suite bathroom downstairs. The other chalets have a king-sized or two queen-sized beds and en suite bathrooms with a shower. Each chalet has a private deck.
The camp is ideally located in South Luangwa National Park, a world-famous wildlife haven centers around the Luangwa River. The Muchinga Escarpment forms the park’s western and northwestern boundaries, sloping steeply down to the river from the west side. The river valley, continued to the west by the Lunsemfwa River valley, forms a natural barrier, and to this day there are no man-made roads spanning the valley. The Park enjoys a dense animal population including Impalas, pukus, waterbucks, giraffes, and buffaloes grazing on the plains. A high number of leopards stalk the dense woodlands, while herds of elephant wade through the marshes and hippos play in the Luangwa River. There are about 400 bird species recorded in the Park.
