Mvuu Wilderness Lodge is set on the banks of a lagoon just off the Shire River. The Shire River is Lake Malawi's only exit making it the largest in the country, and forms the western boundary of the internationally acclaimed Liwonde National Park.
With the main lounge building set high above the water for wonderful views, Mvuu Wilderness Lodge offers guests a luxurious African getaway.
Mvuu means "hippo" in Tonga and the name epitomises the large numbers of pods of these 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.
Accommodation at Mvuu is in eight spacious tents, each with en suite bathroom facilities and a private viewing platform looking out on the lagoon. Lodge facilities include a dining room, pub, lounge area, extensive wildlife library, a hide overlooking the river and a natural rock swimming pool.
Activities at Mvuu revolve around boating trips on the Shire River and game drives. Nature walks and bike rides are also very popular. Bird enthusiasts will be able to participate in virtually non-stop birding around Mvuu Wilderness Lodge.
