Mfuwe Lodge

The open-plan design of Mfuwe's new structures keeps the comfort and relaxation of guests in mind, but also capitalises on the fact that an African wilderness experience is a blend of colours and textures, sounds, aromas and sights unmatched anywhere else in the world.



The open plan central lodge facility incorporates reception, lounge, dining and bar areas, under a thatch roof supported by palm poles and dominated by two impressive chimneys at opposite ends. This cool and airy central meeting place is the heart of the lodge. It opens onto a broad timber deck that cantilevers dramatically over the main lagoon. From the comfort of the Lodge guests may view some of Africa's majestic wildlife as animals come down to drink. Elephant, hippopotamus, many antelope species and crocodiles are plentiful in this area.

The deck area in front of the lounge accommodates the swimming pool which also overlooks the main lagoon. In between game drives, walks and meals, guests may relax around the pool or in the unique library which is entirely dedicated to nature conservation related issues, African culture, tradition and history. The library also include a video library and has its own timber deck which overlooks the main lagoon. Here people can read or write in peace and soak up the tranquillity of Africa at its best.



Accommodation is provided in 18 open-plan chalets, each with en-suite bathroom. One third of each chalet's perimeter can be opened, to allow the guest to enjoy the views, the sounds, the scents and the mood of the African wilderness. Each chalet has a large private deck overlooking one of the lagoons.

The bathrooms have both bath and shower, with separate toilet. The bathing corner can be completely opened to offer guests an open-air bathing experience.

Each room has a private bar. The thatched roof has been designed to guarantee maximum ventilation, even though all rooms on the lagoon are dramatically sheltered by huge ebony trees.



The lodge also has an open boma for dinners under starlit African skies and earnest talk around the campfire. Activities from the lodge include day and night game drives; lion and leopard are often seen. The lodge offers walking safaris for closer contact with the game and exceptional bird watching

Day 6  South Luangwa Valley | Meals: BLD
Another full day to search for game. Another "special" animal to watch for is the Thornicroft's giraffe. These giraffe differ from the Maasai or Rothschild's giraffe - their legs below their knees are almost white and their faces are quite light or white. The main part of their body is covered in dark patches, while their neck is covered in lighter patches.

From either our main garden, our infinity pool or from the privacy of your room, views are unmatched.

The open-sided Main House has been designed with space and views in mind and has a truly African feel. Enjoy sundowners in the African style lounge, a 3 course dinner in the dining room or spend some quiet time in the library or upper deck discovering the secrets of Africa.

Our private table set-up ensures you can enjoy your dinner from any place you desire. Just pick a spot: on our upper deck, in our wine cellar, outdoors under the stars or in our infinity pool? Or maybe you would like to have a romantic private dinner in the room? It's all possible at Stanley Safari Lodge.

The atmosphere at Stanley Safari Lodge is tranquil and intimate, and with only 10 private cottages or suites we are able to give you an unmatched level of entirely personalized service.

Day 8  Victoria Falls | Meals: BLD
You'll want to tour Victoria Falls this morning. The Falls are over 5500 feet wide and more than 328 feet high. Perhaps most impressive is the sight (and sound) of more than 1 million gallons of water per minute crashing into the gorge below. Later, visit a nearby village where you have the opportunity to experience village life that has been virtually unchanged over 300 years.
