Tucked away in Zambia, along the meandering banks of the mighty Zambezi River lays Mvuu Lodge, “The Place of the Hippo”. It is situated about 18 km from the Lower Zambezi National Park in the Chiawa Game Management area and right opposite Mana Pools. The wild animals roam casually through the camp providing you with a truly unforgettable experience.
We offer luxury packages, self catering and camping. Enjoy a true Africa experience in our safari tents with ensuite bathrooms that overlook the mighty Zambezi River. The campsites are situated in close proximity to the Lodge and are nestled in thick bush under a canopy of indigenous trees, providing a cool haven from the African Sun. All three camp sites, Monkey, Mvuu & Elly, have their own private hot shower, flush toilet and braai area. The ablution facilities are enclosed by stone walls and roofed by the majestic Zambian sky.
