When staying at Mvuu Camp or Mvuu Wilderness Lodge in Liwonde National Park in Malawi, one can do a wonderful village tour with Christopher Mvula, our Malawi Community Liaison. The tour starts with a short boat ride across the Shire River to the boat station on the opposite bank. From there, one can either cycle, walk or be driven to Kwenje and Njobvu villages, adjacent to the Park.

Mvuu Village Visit

The tour includes visiting Nanthomba School (originally started by Wilderness Safaris’ staff members from the village and now operated and managed by H.E.L.P., an NGO based at Mvuu Camp, Nandumbo Clinic, and Njobvu Cultural Village.

Guests also have the option to overnight at Njovbu Cultural Village if they would like to. Activities at the cultural village include a fire dance, tasting traditional food, visiting a traditional healer and viewing local crafts.
