Mvuu Wilderness Lodge

Superb Malawi Safari at Mvuu Wilderness Lodge

Enjoy an unsurpassed Malawi safari at Mvuu Wilderness Lodge located on a hidden lagoon on the spectacular Shire River in the legendary Liwonde National Park. Game viewing by boat, 4×4 vehicle or on foot is an enormous highlight in this wilderness region, the best way to see majestic elephant herds, huge crocodiles and nocturnal birds, big cats and more. Venture out to a traditional village and experience the simplicity of village life. Relax in a hammock and observe wild animals as they congregate for a drink.

Mvuu Lodge is carefully constructed above the water for sheer magic views across the wilderness – guests love the telescope viewing, the wildlife library and their game rangers’ knowledge about all biodiversity in this region. Chill out in the refreshing swimming pool on its welcoming sun deck as wild animals roam the fertile floodplains below including hippos, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, baboons and waterbuck.

 We highly recommend the Rhino Tracking Experience where you become part of something greater, joining the Rhino Protection Team on foot to track these majestic prehistoric creatures. Meeting the friendly local people is another adventure worth waiting for. 

Settle into riverfront chalets with solid timber beams and canvas walls, polished timber decks, stone bathtubs, outside showers and lavish décor. The river safari never disappoints, especially as the sun goes down over the water and the hippos grunt and wallow. Discover the wealth of wildlife along the banks, even a male lion or two, or a warthog grazing.  

Secure your Malawi adventure with Voyage2Africa to see the best wildlife in Liwonde National Park and to be part of Malawi conservation endeavours.

This Malawai safari venue features a comfy social hub within a wonderful warm thatched dining and lounge area overlooking the lagoon landscape. Two huge old baobab trees stand regally as if framing the view for you and starlit dinners are the best way to end days of game-viewing excitement around the blazing boma fire.

Mix business with pleasure when you bring your work colleagues here for a meeting in the awesome conference centre for up to 40 delegates or hire the entire camp out for an educational outing. All guests are treated to boat safaris, two game drives a day, guided walks and birding. 

Chill time comes between game-viewing activities in individual private suites designed to invite nature inside. Superb Liwonde accommodation in 8 tented rooms constructed from solid poles with canvas walls and dark polished floors are perfectly raised for the views and feature delightful stone bathtubs, indoor and outdoor showers.   

The stone and thatched honeymoon suite is even more intimate and offers a romantic sunken bath as well as a thatch-shaded gazebo down a sandy pathway, where a few comfy chairs overlook the lagoon.

Scintillating safaris at Mvuu Lodge on a boat trip, game drive or walking safari are simply the best ways to get close to wildlife while bicycle trips into the community villages awaken you to what is happening in rural Africa. Some guests are lucky enough to spot wild dogs hunting, cheetahs playing with their cubs and rare servals, owls, and genets.
