Mvuu Lodge offers a luxurious stay and an intimate getaway in a secluded wilderness setting. The lodge overlooks a tranquil lagoon that is located just off the Shire River, in an area that is surrounded by lush vegetation and towering Borassus palms. Mvuu means “hippo” in Tonga and the name of the lodge was inspired by the large pods of hippos that inhabit the surrounding waters of the Shire. Mvuu Lodge is ideal for travellers who are seeking a more up-market and exclusive safari experience in Malawi.
Accommodation at the lodge comprises eight beautifully-appointed stone and thatch tents, one of which is a romantic honeymoon suite. Each tent has en-suite facilities and a private deck, which overlooks the water’s edge. Guests can also opt to spend a memorable night under the stars at the lodge’s Star Beds, which are located just 4km away. The Star Beds provide guests with an opportunity to immerse themselves in nature and take in Liwonde’s vast floodplains, open marshes and mopane woodlands. Common facilities at the lodge include a dining room, pub, lounge area and a natural rock swimming pool.
Liwonde National Park is one of Malawi’s premier wildlife destinations and is home to an abundance of flora and fauna. Sightings of elephant, hippo, crocodile, sable antelope and zebra are common in the park, and rarer sightings include that of lion, leopard, serval and black rhino. A variety of engaging activities are available at Mvuu Lodge, which along with Mvuu Camp, is the only place in the park that offers boat safaris on the Shire as well as day and night game drives. Other activities include guided walks, a black rhino tracking experience, bicycle rides through the nearby villages, visits to local schools and a stay at a traditional rural village.
Mvuu Lodge is run by Central African Wilderness Safaris (CAWS), an ecotourism company that offers the finest quality safari experiences in Malawi. CAWS offers both up-market tailor-made luxury safaris as well as more affordable budget safari options and holiday getaways. The company is dedicated to offering personalised and authentic travel experiences that have a minimal impact on the planet and a lasting impact on people.
