Room was certainly up to scratch. Excellent facilities. A pity the lagoon had dried out but I was endlessly entertaind by the baboons as I sat on the deck. The trees beyond captured the light beautifully..
The Manager kindly offered to sit with me for meals as I was alone but I'm used to that so released him from that duty. I appreciated the table they had prepared for me for luncch - prime position. However, he was very attentive during afternoon tea and drinks at the bar.
After Nsefu, food was inevitably a disappointment.though needless to say, I enjoyed breakfast. They cater for groups and the food reflected that.
Nevertheless, it served it's purpose. A good night and another experience." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia
"Visit of a lifetime"
My room was a two story (sort of a tree house) overlooking a stream. The crocodile (the name of the room) has a loft, balcony, two toilets, four sinks, a tube and shower, as well as a porch. I counted as many as 13 elephants in my back yard at one time." See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
"Mfuwe Lodge review"
"Mfuwe Lodge was a pleasant surprise"
We were met at the airport and taken for a surprise bush brunch in a great location on the way to the lodge. After our meeting in Mfuwe we went on a game drive where we saw 14 wild dog giving a hard time to a hyena. we saw a lot of other game to and had a good guide. Our breakfast was interrupted the next morning to enable us to see the 14 dogs on a hunt again.
The service and food were very good with all the staff being very friendly. The room was quite luxurious compared to the bush camps we normally stay at.
The lodges location near the park entrance means it is in a busy area of the park but we really enjoyed our stay." See all these reviews: 21n in Zambia
"Overnight at Mfuwe Lodge"
Mfuwe Lodge fitted the bill exactly - we had a very nice dinner followed by an early night and a game drive next morning before departing for Zungulila after brunch." See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia
"Good place to have our first night"
We enjoyed the informal dining with our guide and manager Ollie, and had a very good first game drive with 12 lions. All the staff were very welcoming and interested in their guests. When we passed through on our last day, we were welcomed back like old friends." See all these reviews: 11n in Zambia
"Excellent location within the park"
The game viewing was excellent - with a couple of great lion sightings on the night drives. Being inside the park, we were able to stay out longer, and it was on the extended night drives that we saw the lion. Again, the guiding could not be faulted and the drives were tailored to our interests.
The lodge did feel a bit regimented, particularly at mealtimes, and felt a bit like a canteen rather than an intimate lodge. Having said that, the food was very good." See all these reviews: 14n in Zambia

"Mfuwe Lodge review"
After staying at the bush camps, felt a little impersonal and regimented." See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
"Lucky with the leopards."
The guide who was with us for the whole three days was excellent. The game was good and we saw leopards every day, once in daylight. We even saw a pair of mating lions!
The food was good with very friendly African staff. Unfortunatley the English 'temporary' staff were not so good. Felt that as they were more expensive than the previous lodge drinks should have been free as was the case in the other lodge." See all these reviews: 7n in Zambia; 4n in Malawi; 4n in Botswana
