Mvuu Camp, Liwonde, Malawi

Mvuu Camp is an Adventures Camp

Non-stop hippo-ing and birding

Mvuu Camp overlooks a broad stretch of the Shire River (pronounced Shiree) in the Liwonde National Park. The camp is a clever mix of stone and canvas chalets and specially-designed family tents, which total 12 units or 48 beds. An impressive thatched dining and lounge area is situated between two enormous baobabs, and dinners are sometimes held under the stars in a specially constructed boma. A custom-built education and conference centre has facilities for up to 40 delegates or smaller corporate and teambuilding functions.


  • There are specially-designed family tents just right for families of different sizes
  • Mvuu Camp offers a wide range of options including camping, self-catering and full board
  • The view of the Shire River generally holds a profusion of hippo, crocs and amazing birdlife.
