Mvuu Lodge

Liwonde, Malawi


Liwonde, Malawi

Mvuu Lodge nestles discreetly on the banks of a lagoon just off the Shire River with the main lounge building set high above the water for wonderful views. Mvuu means “hippo” in Tonga and the name epitomises the large numbers of pods of these water-loving mammals that float in the river. In this lush and fertile area, an excellent diversity of animals – including elephant and sable antelope, impala and waterbuck – can be seen. The Liwonde Park, named for Chief Liwonde who had championed its protection, harbours very diverse landscapes. This park is home to the largest remaining elephant population in the country and one of only two breeding nuclei of black rhino in Malawi. The Park also has large numbers of impala, reedbuck, waterbuck, warthog and majestic sable, the last a species quite uncommon anywhere in Africa today.
Accommodation : 8 spacious tents for a maximum of 16 guests, each with en-suite bathroom facilities and a private viewing platform looking out on the lagoon. Amenities : – restaurant,- swimming pool,- sitting room,- dining room,- lounge,- library.
