Mvuu Lodge

Mvuu Lodge offers a luxurious stay and an intimate getaway in a secluded setting in Liwonde National Park, Malawi’s premier wildlife area. The Lodge overlooks a tranquil lagoon, in an area surrounded by lush vegetation and towering Borassus palms. Mvuu means “hippo” in Chichewa and the name of the lodge was inspired by the large pods of hippos that inhabit the surrounding waters of the Shire.

Accommodation comprises eight tents, one of which is a romantic honeymoon suite. Each tent has en-suite bathroom facilities and a private deck that overlooks the water’s edge, and three of the tents are fitted with plunge pools. Lodge facilities include a dining room, lounge area and a swimming pool. Located just 2kms south of the lodge, Mvuu’s new star beds overlook the floodplains and offer guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in nature and spend a memorable night under the stars.

Key activities at Mvuu Lodge include boat safaris, guided walks, birding, and traditional day and night game drives. Additional activities include the Shire River Trail, visits to Njobvu Cultural Village Lodge and Nanthomba School.
