Things to do at Mvuu Lodge

Mvuu Lodge offers a wide range of activities through Liwonde National Park, considered the most prolific wildlife area in Malawi, as well as excursions in the surrounding communities.

River safaris

Superb river cruises take in the languid Shire River, where guests may get close to hippo pods, bathing elephant, crocodile and a host of colourful birdlife.

Nature walks

A morning or afternoon walk with an experienced guide means that you may find a porcupine, Dickinson’s kestrel or inquisitive impala on foot and away from the confines of a safari vehicle.

Game drives

Named after Chief Liwonde who had championed its protection, the Liwonde National Park harbours very diverse landscapes. Travel through these in search of equally diverse wildlife.

Night drives

After a sundowner stop at some idyllic location, return to camp after dark, when a different wildlife component comes to life.

Game drives into the Rhino Sanctuary

There is a black rhino conservation programme and it is possible (with special permission) to visit the Rhino Sanctuary in the Park, which also contains other game and different bird species.


Liwonde National Park offers some of the best birding in Malawi. Specials include brown-breasted barbet, Böhm's bee-eater, African skimmer and Livingstone's flycatcher to mention just a few.
