"Mvuu Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 24 Jul 2016
"Mvuu had the best wildlife. The river trips, game drives and walks with Justin were excellent. He worked really hard.

The bird life on the River Shire trips was top class. We saw many elephants, sable, hartebeest and other antelopes though they were all somewhat spooked by the helicopters flying over due to the darting and translocation of elephants by "African Parks".

A number of their representatives were in the lodge and we discovered quite a lot about the procedures, though it clearly causes some distress among the animals. While we were in the lodge, Prince Harry visited the camp to view the translocation.

The reason we have marked the accommodation down is really to do with the comparison with Tongole and Mkulumadzi where the rooms were huge by comparison. The tents at Mvuu are small and we never really unpacked as there was nowhere for the clothes. It was also a little noisy due to its location next to the bar and restaurant.

The food was good. DK - the manager was very pleasant and helpful.

The driver who did the transfers to and from Mvuu was the excellently named Everlasting. He was a real gentleman and we liked him a great deal." See all these reviews: 9n in Malawi

"Mvuu Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 24 Oct 2010
"Everything about MVuu was great - food, accommodation, people.

Our guide Angel was particularly attentive sharing lots of informtion about the environment within the camp and also about Malawi itself. Accommodation was basic but clean. We had a lovely letter to welcome us when we arrived.

Basically everything the website promised the camp delivered." See all these reviews: 6n in Malawi

"Mvuu Lodge much improved since last visit"

2 nights Arrived 3 Jul 2009
"Not the best time of year for viewing game or birds.

Road to camp very bad and access to park would be better by road or boat from Liwonde Barrage." See all these reviews: 10n in Malawi

"Great safari at Mvuu Camp"

2 nights Arrived 2 Sep 2007
"The quality of facilities at Mvuu Camp is excellent.

There was good game viewing including hippos, elephants and an impressive number and variety of antelopes. There was also interesting bird life.

The only fault with the wild life was the lack of predators." See all these reviews: 8n in Malawi
