We are excited to inform you that Mfuwe Lodge, situated in the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, reopened to guests on the 1st of May, with a brand new look, after a major upgrade and refurbishment. Whilst the essential structure and design of the lodge remains the same considerable changes have been made to decor, furnishings, lighting and all facilities to give the lodge a whole new look.
Mfuwe Lodge is built between two spectacular lagoons. The open plan design keeps the comfort and relaxation of guests in mind, but also capitalizes on the fact that an African wilderness experience is a blend of colors and textures, sounds, aromas and sights unmatched anywhere else in the world.
A new curio shop has been created and reception, bar and dining areas have been remodeled. A new pizza oven/braii area has been installed. The main deck area has been refurbished and an outdoor lounge and dining area has been incorporated. The infinity swimming pool was re-lined and given a new look, and as an added benefit, solar “farms” have been erected to provide hot water in a more environmentally friendly way.
Each chalet provides 24 hour power and is equipped with a ceiling fan, refrigerator, tea and coffee making facilities, mosquito nets, brand new bathrooms, new furnishings and windows. Aa private newly remodeled verandah in each chalet overlooks one of the lagoons where you can view some of Africa’s majestic wildlife as animals come down to drink.
The South Luangwa National Park, located in the eastern part of the Zambia, covers an area of 3500 square miles. It is renowned for its beauty and its varied habitats which support one of Africa’s richest concentrations of game and birdlife. Luangwa boasts Africa’s largest population of leopard. Over 50 species of large mammal and some 400 species of bird thrive in this last haven of wild Africa. During a stay in the South Luangwa Valley you are bound to see the large elephant herds of up to 50 individuals, an abundant number of buffalo, fourteen antelope species and Thornicroft’s giraffe, unique to the Valley. This area is also known for its healthy population of all the big predators. The meandering Luangwa River with its many ox-bow lagoons and shady ebony groves forms the eastern boundary of the Park while the western horizon is dominated by the spectacular Muchinga escarpment, rising almost a kilometer from the valley floor.
