Mvuu Lodge: picture gallery


The Lodge is tucked within lush vegetation overlooking a lagoon off the Shire River.
Mvuu means hippo in the local language and the lodge is aptly named.
The lounge and dining room are raised and a great view point to watch...
hippos big and small munch away at the grass in front of the lodge as well as...
elephants coming to drink at the lagoon  - a regular occurrence in the dry season.
There are eight tented rooms winding away from the dining area, each with...
...with large, comfortable beds...
...and an en-suite bathroom, some with a bath...
...and all with a flushing toilet.
A private 'khonde' dinner can be arranged on your deck for special occasions or...
simply enjoy watching the smaller game like bushbuck and
warthogs who are much less shy than in many other camps.
Gentle boat trips on the Shire River are popular here ...
and afford great sightings not normally seen from a vehicle like this baby crocodile.
Birding on morning walks is good with regular sighting of specials like Pel's Fishing Owl,
Bohm's Bee-eater,
Collared Palm-thrush, and
numerous weavers whose nest building antics are enthralling to watch in the green season.
