Mvuu Camp

Malawi Wildlife

Rating: Modest    

Mvuu Camp overview

Mvuu Camp consists of a mix of stone and canvas chalets and tents providing a total of 48 beds. There is a large thatched central dining and lounge area on the edge of the Shire River. There is also an outdoor 'boma' where dinners are sometimes served under the stars.

The 'Camp' is seperated from neighbouring Mvuu Lodge by a short distance of bushlands, the Lodge being more exclusive and smaller.

Mvuu Camp is family friendly and has a swimming pool and a range of activities. Game drives, bush walks and boat safaris are all offered here. There is a large education and conference centre.

Boat safaris are the highlight at Mvuu (Camp and Lodge) and birding is fantastic around Liwonde. Huge crocodiles and plenty of hippos are seen up and down the river and guests can also visit neighbouring fishing villages and travel further up the water towards Lake Malawi. Nature walks and trips to the local village (across the river outside the park) and biking are popular too.

They recycle bottles into drinking glasses, make plant ties out of old tyres...... but more importantly they are very involved with numerous conservation projects in Lwonde National park. They have a really positive influence in their region.

Perry Rooke

"Nice comfortable chalets. Decent food. Safety -conscious. Good briefing on arrival & welll-planned itinerary. Great game drives & river cruises with very good guides. A well-organised place and a very pleasurable stay."

Mrs Janet Van den Berge
"Another wonderful place to stay, with the Lodge and cabins overlooking the wildlife, and so much of it! Superb facilities, a great welcome and nothing too much trouble. River safaris were the best, but the forest drives, including a walking tour, were also brilliant, with an excellent guide. The water meadows in front of the Lodge had so many animals, some differing each day, there was always so much to see. I noted afterwards that my itinerary included the Camp rather than the Lodge, so perhaps I got lucky, I just went where I was taken!"
Mrs. Joy Longmuir
"A very friendly, well organised camp with excellent staff to look after us and make us feel welcome. The early morning walks were a gentle way to see the landscape and the river trips were an good way to get closer to the wildlife without disturbing it."
